Please Tell Me More About Myself Issue 4: Profile This
MiXed's fourth issue is a good aesthetic combination of text and collage, probably my personal favorite design layout of MiXed to date! This issue has less of an overall theme compared to previous issues, but many of the contributors respond to Ferguson, #blacklivesmatter, and #jesuischarlie. This issues presents and responds to the question of, 'how am I contributing to the movement on both individual and communal level?' Some topics included: femme competition, burning out, white silence as white consent, promoting conversations about racial injustice, the prison industrial complex, rejecting respectability politics, anti-blackness within both non-black QTPOC activist communities as well as within our own families, gender presentation... As always, the contributions are critical and thought provoking, all written with passion, frustration, anger, and vulnerability.
