I’m getting really tired of the intolerance and ignorance toward those who are not society’s “norm.” Here’s what I want to do about it:
Hey, KZinesters! Issue #6 of KZine will be a special issue dealing with embracing others who are different than ourselves rather than shunning them because we don’t understand.
It’s an age-old issue, but, far too frequently, jokes are made (and are widely accepted as normal) about minority groups such as the LGBT community, people with disabilities, and race minorities. These jokes then lead to an ingraining into the subconscious of society fear and hate for anyone unlike ourselves.
I dream of a world where people default to empathy and a desire to learn more rather than fear, hate, bullying, and violence. I want KZine to help point the world in the right direction.
If you have any pieces on bullying, unconditional acceptance, issues in a minority group, or anything along those lines, drop me a line. I’m taking submissions now.
Pieces = poetry, photography, painting, sketches, lyrics, essays, original quotations, short writings, and pretty much anything that expresses your emotions.
Work will begin on Issue #6 after The Music Issue and Issue #5, the Hometown Issue, are completed.
Feel free to write to me with any questions!
