Wear Your Voice Magazine (WYV) is an intersectional feminist media publication committed to deconstructing mainstream media’s approach to news and culture. Unlike traditional media outlets, WYV digs for the non-gendered truth and seeks to amplify the collective voices of today’s generation.
WYV tackles the latest in news from around the world, from an intersectional feminist point of view. We deal with pressing issues such as LGBTQIA rights, race and gender, body politics, sex, and entertainment. WYV seeks to create a dialogue where everyone’s voice is represented and heard.
WYV’s signature is retaining the authenticity of the voices merging in this feminist space to illuminate the minds of our audience. Our writers take a fresh, bold, and radical approach to stories, and offer unique perspectives on the contemporary issues that matter most importantly to you.
WYV is applying a whole new approach to creating content — we’re not just talking about the issues, we’re creating solutions for them.
WYV is most known for our provocative, global viral campaigns. Our first campaign, #KillTheSilience, launched in March 2015, with the aim of helping to end the stigma rape and domestic survivors face when going forward with their story. In the summer of the same year, we launched our first body positive campaign #DropTheTowel, and launched #BeyondBeauty campaign on Black Friday as a reminder that no one can sell you your confidence.
In sum, if Wear Your Voice was a lovechild, we’d be the offspring of James Baldwin and Margaret Cho.
