Diversity in Education

text by: Jonathan Daniel // USA || illustration by: Elizabeth Watkin // USA

I can’t feel. I thought – I had reached my limits, but now – little spheres in onyx tones – surround me pulsing, – pulsing in an expanse – of tepid indigo,

Her Choice

text by: Nikola Italo // Argentina || illustration by: Megan Potoma // USA

My name is Nikola Italo. Well, that’s not my real name, but in many ways, that’s me. I am Nikola when I write, when I tell stories. I was Nikola when I discovered what being a feminist means. Now I am one.

What (Is) It Like…?

text by: GVGK Tang // USA || illustration by: tom moore // Germany

The ambience shifts. What looked like a stilted high school dance – stagnant bodies strewn awkwardly across a dance floor – now feels like an Ivy League dining club. The white male old heads all know each other and group off.

Have You Been a Good Girl?

text by: Elizabeth Watkin // USA || screenshot: from Elizabeth’s film

The video combines poetry and film to explore and challenge the constraints forced upon women as they grow up: How we blame women for being who they are and blame them when they diverge from who they are expected to be.

On Being a Queer Musician

text by: Kat Hamilton // USA || photo by: Manic Pixi // USA

First of all, I love the term “Queer”. There is something unifying and inclusive about it. It covers a lot of ground. In the past year, I’ve really taken to identifying as queer vs. gay or lesbian. I hear it often in the music scene especially.

The Jobs I’ve Found on Craigslist

text by: Anna Geary-Meyer // Germany || photo by: Verena Spilker // Germany

The second job I find on Craigslist is wiping the butt of a three-year-old whose favorite food is salami. No one tells me three-year-olds need help on the toilet, so this comes as a surprise. We get in a fight over the last bread roll one afternoon and I quit.

Burned by the Stake

text by: Ambika Thompson // Canada || illustration by: tom moore // Germany

I was passing through the main square of a village, selling pelts so I could feed all the children I have at home, when a man tried to stick his hand up my skirt. Without hesitation I slapped him in the face

Trans In Prison

What we know is there are trans people and there are prisons and sometimes the two overlap. It happens all over, but I’m from California, so let’s talk about the US.

Perfume Genius on pigs, kids and fame

questions by: Mareike Lütge & Verena Spilker // Germany || photo by: Jason Harrell // Germany

It’s changed. I mean, you know, the first album was a very manic feeling. It needed to come out and I was just doing it for myself. The second album was still personal, but I knew that there were going to be listeners. I kept them in mind while I was writing.

Roseus Lupus

text by: Janielle Love Williams // USA || illustration by: Verena Spilker // Germany

I’m the descendent of a lineage of lycanthropes. As far back as we can trace, the Martins have shed their human coats at midnight of the full moon and roamed the night in packs. Shape shifting is an ability granted only after puberty. Needless to say I spent my childhood in anticipation.

Jay Brannan on Gummy Bears and new languages

questions by: Verena Spilker // Germany || answers + photo by: Jay Brannan // USA

I’m actually using the same guitar that I recorded that soda shop video with, and when I record, I do it in someone else’s studio, or rent studio time and an engineer. So honestly, I haven’t upgraded any equipment since starting.
