She recommends We Must Name Our Anger
by Ijeoma Oluo and The Ones You Love by Juli Fraga (not available online). “It’s about the trauma we face as children, especially from those who are supposed to protect us like our parents and how trying to reconcile is not always the best option,” Talkhani says of the piece. If you’ve got more time, also check out Between the Binary by Sara Corral, says Talkhani. It’s about being a non-binary person.
Talkhani was full of praise for the mag: “Each piece is illustrated by a different artist and on the whole the issue deal with our relationship with anger and how it isn’t always bad to feel angry as sometimes anger stops us from being complacent. Something we need to desperately avoid in the current political climate.”
