What does it look like to fight for freedom? What does it mean to be untethered and free? In an unjust world, how do we find liberation? In Issue 12, we explore the internal struggles, the external forces, and how we make our place as the unique souls we are.

Feels is, well, a publication about feelings. It is a place to explore, to share, and to be honest. Having an open dialogue about what’s going on inside of us can foster meaningful connection and make us feel less alone, especially in the social-media era that asks us to curate and polish our lives and feelings before sharing them — if we share them at all. Feels believes there are no good or bad feelings — the value comes from how we relate to them, how we experience them, and what we learn from them.
Feels also believes in inclusion and recognizes that certain voices have been given the lion’s share of the spotlight throughout history. Our pages are for everyone, and we do not accept pieces that further marginalize. We are a feminist, sex-positive, 2SLGBTQ*, anti-racist, anti-colonial publication.
