HARDY is a print-only zine of poetry, prose, essays, interviews, artwork, and photography, advocating for social justice and queer visibility.
Vol 1 “Hashtag Activism” is a curation of founding editor Joey Gray’s social media content, offering a queer perspective on the 2016 election and sociopolitical climate.
Vol 2 “We Are Family” is a celebration of diversity within the LGBTQ community, emphasizing the importance of visibility and inclusivity, and the historical impact of drag and chosen families for queer people.
Vol 3 “The Future Is Fluid” is a colorful patchwork of gender identity and self expression, featuring collaborations and contributions from fluid and non-binary LGBTQ folk.
Vol 4 “For” is currently in progress and will be released in early 2020.
