CALLING ALL COOL BABES DOING COOL THINGS: The Coalition Zine Wants You

500 88 Zakyree Wallace

Do you ever feel like the environment you live in doesn’t allow space for your success? Are you looking for any online community that is specifically made by and for girls, non-binary, and trans youth of color?

If you answered yes then, the Coalition Zine is for you. Their slogan “Cool Babes Doing Cool Things” tells you just about everything you need to know about them.

Their website and online zines create a safe space for people of color to share their art and stories in a way that encourages them to name adversity they’ve experienced and be real about how discrimination has impacted their lives.

No where else have I seen folks of color come together online to be painfully honest about their stories, struggles, and successes.

I became introduced to them in my first semester of college, through their tumblr during a low period in my semester.

The Coalition is your reminder that you’re not alone. It is the answer to your questions: “what are other people like me doing? How are they making it in toxic spaces?”

Hey y'all! My name is Zakyree Wallace, and I am a staff writer, soon to be assistant editor, at Natura Magazine. I’m passionate about mindfulness, learning more about feminine energy, and the history and lasting effects of racism and capitalism in our society. While I’m currently a sophomore at UNC-CH studying African American and Women and Gender Studies, I’m excited to leave my student days behind and embrace learning non-traditionally.
