First things first, y’all: WALUIGI SOLIDARITY.

 


 

Some friends of POME, including Group Chat contributor Little Corvus, are launching a Kickstarter TOMORROW for their witchy political thriller, I Am Hexed. We couldn’t be more pumped, and we hope you’ll check out their campaign and support this exciting book!

 


 

In other witchy-ass Kickstarter news, this fantastical trans femme prose anthology, Maiden, Mother, and Crone is so up our alley, maybe we should just throw a block party together??

 


 

Ever wanted to break into comics, but didn’t have an experienced friend to tell you how? Creator Resource is filling the knowledge gap by collecting comic book freelancing tools and resources all into one user-friendly space.

 


 

For all the spoop that’s fit to print, check out this hilarious review of the Hereditary Wikipedia page by a writer who (like some of us POMEs) is too afraid to actually watch the movie.

 


 

Not enough spoop for you??? Then you need to check out this eerie facial mask commercial giving us Madame Masque realness!!

 


 

In this thoughtful essay, Sarah Rich argues that in order to truly break free from the damage of gender norms, we need to expand boyhood and masculinity to include softness and vulnerability, before it’s too late.

 


 

Meanwhile, this actual blessing in human child form explains why she insists on using a gender-neutral “les” in Spanish, even when adults tell her she’s wrong.

 


 

Grimes’s boyfriend Eelspawn Husk talks a medium game about respecting his workers, but isn’t great at following through.

 


 

Mermay may have come and gone, but you can still indulge your nautical fashion cryptid vibes with these gorgeous pics of the 2018 Coney Island Mermaid parade. We think the new SOPHIE album would make a great soundtrack for your mermaid slideshow, too.

 


 

Don’t look now, but the NRA is on to us. Keep working, witches — we may transform Ted Cruz into an axolotl, yet.

 


 

Okay, whose demon underling do we need to make a blood pact with to make this happen? All hail #GarbageCrow!!!!

 

Pomegranate Magazine

POMEmag is the internet’s premier pastel, macabre feminist dork publication. Or at least, a very pastel, macabre feminist dork publication that is leaning into that identity pretty hard.
