The roziejune Mag

Roziejune is a safe space for the marginalized people of the world. Women, women of color, disabled women, the queer community, those battling  mental illness, and anyone who needs a safe haven.

We created this magazine because we knew that our community could benefit from it. It is another way to bring us together. Along the way, we realized that the world could benefit from it.  We recognize the power & influence magazines had on us while growing up, and the power they still hold now, so we wanted to use that power & influence for the better. We want to normalize all human bodies & show that all humans are beautiful & all humans are important. We want to normalize the things that have been ostracized. We want to share stories & amplify voices to create empathy & understanding which leads to unity, love, equality, and community. We are committed to building a future where everyone is equal. This is our mission.

Welcome to our little safe haven. You are welcome here. You are wanted here. You are valued here. We hope that when you read the roziejune mag  that you are reminded of how powerful you are, how magical you are, and that you are a part of a badass community of women. You are not alone. You are a part of something bigger, something meaningful, and something filled with love. 

We also hope that when you read the mag,  you feel empowered to be YOU. All of you. To embrace all of your magical, beautiful, wild & weird soul. Its time to step into your power & to take up all of the space that your soul wants.

This magazine is a collaboration & a labor of love from our community. If you would like to contribute, please read below & read how to submit your work. Looking forward to see what you create.
