A limited number of our new SPICY merch will be available for purchase! Free goodies will also be given out per donation.

And as always, this is a POC TO THE FRONT event.
SPICY is an online zine and creative collective comprised of women of color and queer + trans people of color. Our mission is to create a platform empowering women and nonbinary people of color to write, create, express, debate, learn, and ultimately decolonize the media - a space that doesn’t always include them. There is a lack of diversity not only within the media, but specifically in the newsrooms. Narratives of those living within the nuanced and complicated duality of being an American while also clinging to the cultures of another heritage is an experience not eloquently captured in today’s media. SPICY is a space for us, by us.
In addition to our online publication, we are planning to host fundraisers for local nonprofits, creative meet-ups for young PoC professionals, as well as help curate pop-up galleries, shops, and shows.
Our editors are currently based in NYC and Boston, but we’re looking to expand. We are hoping to grow with more WoC + QTPoC, so if you have pitches or ideas, need a platform to uplift your creative content, or simply want to learn more, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
