Our Editor in Chief, Jamie Windust, wanted to create a publication that was honest, real and authentic for the LGBTQIA+ community. We have seen so much written about us that's not BY us. So instead of waiting for the right content to appear, Jamie created it themselves. As someone who identifies as a queer non-binary femme, it's important to be able to see yourself represented in society by the right people. The magazine features pieces written by Jamie, including an interview with Jamie Campbell, the inspiration and muse for 'Everybody's Talking About Jamie', and interviews with Travis Alabanza, a queer non-binary POC artist and performer, acclaimed for their powerful performances and unapologetic stance on queer non-binary rights. This first issue is all about representation, and we hope that you are able to read the publication and get a real sense of pride for our community, as creating it was something that was truly enriching and empowering.
