The Coalition Zine

thecoalitionmag:

The Coalition Zine is a digital collective dedicated to putting girls of colour on the map by showcasing female writers, artists, and creators of colour on a monthly basis. The zine was created as a space dedicated solely to girls of colour, a  space where we can share our traumas, opinions, and triumphs with each other and grow together collectively. 

Recently, we got the opportunity to reach a wider audience by having the zine sold at Afropunk Fest ‘14. The only problem is our zine is digitally-based and we need to have printed copies for the zine tent at Afropunk fest. Printing enough copies will cost roughly $250. With this money, we will print enough copies to sell at Afropunk and also at local book stores, etsy, etc.

Having our zine at Afropunk Fest will show other girls of colour that don’t know about us that there’s a space dedicated to them, by people who are just like them. It will inspire girls of colour to create, write, invade creative spaces that people say we can’t be a part of because of where we come from and our skin colour. Help us reach other girls and show them that we are worth it and worthwhile. We have a very short time to raise this amount so please any donation, any amount will be greatly appreciated!

PRAISE BE

When I worked at a fast food restaurant, I did a social experiment.
One day, I asked “do you want a girl toy or a boy toy?” No one went against gender roles.
The next day, it was “do you want a doll toy or a car toy?” Boys got dolls. Girls got cars.
Vocabulary is important.

Kacy Catanzaro: the first woman in history to qualify for Mt. Midoriyama.

I just need everyone to watch this video [x]. She’s a 5 foot, 100 lb gymnast and she beasts through this insanely difficult, heavily upper body focused course like it was her morning jog. The camera keeps cutting to these massive, musclebound men in the audience with their mouths hanging open.
