Attention all queer witches of color! POWER & MAGIC is a comics anthology about women of color, for women of color. And they’re accepting submissions until March 15th!

Witches are icons of female power. They represent rebellion, transcendence, healing, feminine monstrosity, so-called “deviance,” and interconnectedness (with the earth, with their bodies, with each other).

Keep your eyes peeled for the POWER & MAGIC Kickstarter coming in the near future!

So many gifts coming our way this week – this gospel version of the Golden Girls theme really put us over the edge though.

 

 

 


 

This article by Aaminah Khan addresses islamophobia directed at her by self-identified white liberals and progressives. It’s a powerful piece that validates her own experiences and asks others to do the same. Content warnings for discussions of homophobia and racist violence.

Finding My Monsters

My fascination began with the 1979 film Alien. I was six when my parents let me watch it with them one night.
