our tagline is personal stories about pop culture. we write about the ways that the media we love affects our lives. in this issue you'll find stories about coming to term with your past through unbreakable kimmy schmidt (in stories that won both first and second place in our writing competition), deciding to publicly transition with help from scooby doo, falling out of love with star wars, and so much more. and then, because we're an independent magazine and can do whatever we want, we supplement those essays with other stuff to make the experience more fun. coloring pages and a bunch of other activities you miss from your past. art, comics, and short stories. all from a mix of new voices and the people you love.
