Wear Your Voice is a digital magazine for and by LGBTQIA+ Black, Indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) based in the United States. We publish reported articles, features, personal essays, and critical analyses of current events, politics, entertainment, culture, sexuality, health, and more.
We prioritize the voices of those who have historically been kept out of mainstream publishing and we aim to highlight our stories, our cultures, and our perspectives in a world that has ignored us.
“When I flipped through the pages of my favorite magazines growing up, I never saw images that I could relate to; I did not feel seen or heard. I realized later in life that media had been the source for many of my insecurities, and I knew if I didn’t see myself represented in the media, other people, especially marginalized people of color, didn’t see themselves represented either. I decided that I wanted to change that, so I took the essence of a glossy lifestyle magazine and put an intersectional feminist spin on it, and out of this was borne Wear Your Voice Magazine, a magazine to redefine the way we as people are represented in the media.”
