A new magazine in print presenting stories and art made by women and non-binary people
Male, cis-het voices continue to dominate the news and cultural media both online and offline, but Ash is a space reserved for those of us who do not enjoy equal representation. Ash is ad-free, independent and fiercely intersectional... a more honest read.
On the theme ‘The Glory’, this issue is about strength, resilience and nerve, sharing stories of survival, stories of rebellion and stories of overcoming shame, presented alongside stunning art from some of our faves.
We’re celebrating people that persist, shining a light on the many ways that shaming happens, and showing by example that you can stand up and be glorious in spite of it. We’re soft, we’re vulnerable, we’re bold, we’re determined… we’re here.
