AN INTERSECTIONAL FEMINIST MAGAZINE
Fresh off the heels of graduating with dual English and Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies majors, I hope to shed light on the power of voice as a form of activism. Stories incorporate unique lived experiences, and while I certainly can't speak for anyone other than myself, I know that words are start and end movements. In my free time, I love reading young adult fiction, attending pop-punk concerts, and making all kinds of stickers (yes, you read that right)! I'm always looking for reading recommendations and intersectional feminist conversation, and you'll almost always find me laughing at just about anything because my laugh threshold is very, very low! Also, catch me analyzing Disney songs just as often as I belt them at the top of my lungs because we all have a little bad feminist in us.

Ciana just graduated from SUNY University at Buffalo with a Bachelor’s degree in English and is starting her M.A. in Global Gender & Sexuality Studies this fall. Although longing for the north west — where she can enjoy the rain, greenery, and plentiful vegan treats with her boyfriend — she’s from buffalo, NY, where she enjoys reading, (attempting to) paint, and watching Buffy the Vampire Slayer for outfit inspiration and major girl power vibes. She hopes to break down European beauty standards and challenge cultural appropriation one day at a time, all while maintaining her burgeoning natural hair.

Adara. A "Queen from Queens" who spends her free time bumping raunchy girl rap, watching FRIENDS and spending her rent money on UberEats. When she not free, she's designing for her plus-size fashion brand, posting to her blog, or nurturing her growing collection of door knockers and vulgar statement tees. She's super excited to fight the patriarchy while learning everything she can about the magazine machine in hopes of living out her black Atoosa Rubenstein fantasy.
Emily (or “Em”, as her grandma calls her) has never met a cat she doesn’t like. When she’s not reading The New Yorker or sitting in Central Park, she’s definitely looking for another excellent record to add to her vinyl collection. She loves Billy Joel, fried pickles, sitting on the steps of The Met, and looking for apartments she can’t afford on StreetEasy. If she wasn’t so set on living in New York, she’d move right back to London, where she spent half a year eating all the best food and traveling to all the coolest places. A recent graduate of Binghamton University with a B.A. in English Lit, Em hopes to move to the city by the end of this year and own a bookstore/ coffee shop one day.

With her shared art history twitter (@lesbianarthist) and personal blog (micaelafreeman.wordpress), writing is her passion.

Lindsay Grippo is a rising senior at Fordham University, studying English and Communications and Culture and winging a great deal else in terms of long-term life plans. Her likes include comparing natal charts, fitting carefully crafted nuggets of absurdist humor into 280 characters and getting existential, and she can likely be found jade rolling at any given time. She takes way more mirror selfies than she’d like to admit and writes, as Joan Didion says, entirely to find out what she’s thinking, what she’s looking at, what she sees and what it means. Lindsay is excited to be an editorial intern this summer at Slutmouth and hopes to contribute something meaningful to the conversation and resonant with women everywhere.
