As male, cis-het voices continue to dominate the news and cultural media both online and offline, Ash Magazine is a space reserved for those of us who do not enjoy equal representation.
Each issue of Ash presents a diverse range of relatable, honest and uplifting conversations on a common theme, presented alongside stunning, often politically charged art and illustration. The result is a beautiful, thoughtful magazine that endures.
We came to life in 2018 via a Kickstarter campaign funded by hundreds of people who wanted to read an independent magazine that speaks to them.
With a focus on feminism, body positivity and gender, Ash was initially aimed at cis-het women, and whilst our content still reflects our readership (the majority of whom identify as such), Ash has naturally evolved to include and advocate for all underrepresented groups, addressing inequality across the board.
We’re independent, ad-free and fiercely intersectional, driven by the desire to offer a more genuine perspective.
As well as addressing representation, instigating conversation and raising awareness for causes close to our hearts, we aim to inspire real world action via our events and fundraising. To date we have donated to UN Women, Bloody Good Period and Sister Supporter.
We’re passionate about exploring feminism, race, gender and identity, the environment, activism and social justice from an intersectional standpoint.
We recognise the under-representation of womxn, people of colour and the queer community in the media, and as such, in an effort to redress the balance, we welcome submissions only from people whose lived experiences fall within those groups.
