GENDERSMASH!® is a yearly zine published in collaboration by the Cypress College English Department, Cypress College Library, and Cypress College's Club L.E.A.D. (Ladies Empowered and Determined). The core mission of the magazine is a dedication to bringing to light matters concerning feminism, LGBTQUIA, social justice, and racial issues.
What the editors tend to like: Creative non-fiction (narratives or experiences that are rooted in or inspired by factual events), poetry, and artwork on any number of topics that are related to the core mission of the magazine. We encourage depth of thought, complexity, ambiguity, grace, wit, irreverence, insouciance, lyricism, and candor.
What the editors tend to dislike: Anything that reeks of hateful political ideology, religious doctrine, or familiar and uninspiring arguments.
