GlitterMOB Mag — A virtual art and literary magazine that began in 2014. GlitterMOB was founded to publish diverse, exciting, and marginalized voices on the digital page. They have always been inspired by the gurlesque artistic movement. They try to publish work that reclaims the idea of “girl” and femininity by having it written in a “campy or overtly mocking way.” They are attracted to work that tackles the norms of what is and is not acceptable in terms of gender and the female form.
Capoeira Muçurumim — Capoeira Muçurumim’s mission is to focus on the healing, martial, and dance aspects of Capoeira Angola and use Capoeira as a forum to bridge cultural gaps, combat community violence, promote self-empowerment, and healing.

Femme Mâché — a documentary zine-making collective of femme identifying thinkers, tinkers, and everything in between. Co-founders Lilian Finckel and Pooja Desai lead zine-making workshops: thorough treatments of different topical issues in which participants engage in deconstructing curated resources through discussion and physical collaging, and reconstructing them as artistic interpretations of texts, written responses, and more. These creations come together in a single compilation, creating a documentary publication.
