ANTIHEROINE. is an independent radical magazine, by and for trans, gender nonconforming, intersex, and queer Black people, Indigenous people, and people of colour, especially unhoused people, trans people, disabled people, mentally ill people, and sex workers.

Our mission:

We are creating a world without capitalism, white supremacy, cisheteropatriarchy, ableism, racism, anti-Blackness, anti-Indigeneity, trans/queermisia (trans/queerphobia), and other system oppressions—together.

We write about:

  • Racial justice/anti-racism
  • Anti-capitalism
  • Black feminism
  • Indigenous feminism
  • Feminisms of colour
  • Disability/healing justice
  • Trans/queer justice
  • Mental illness
  • Decolonisation
  • Anti-imperialism
  • Anti-police/anti-ICE and demilitarisation
  • Transformative justice
  • Community accountability
  • Mutual aid
  • And much, much more...

Please support our mission, share our articles, and tell your friends about us so we can continue this work!

Thank you to our amazing contributors✨:

海水仙 hai shuixian

ANTIHEROINE. was founded by mentally ill • disabled • trans • diasporic 上海 shanghainese chinese-amerikan • immigrant settler • artist, writer, activist, &c. 海水仙 HAI SHUIXIAN (pronouns: they/them/theirs) in January 2017, in-between multiple psychiatric hospitalisations for trauma-induced psychosis.

Our current logo was designed by amelie, a blind queer agender Vietnamese-USian artist and designer.

Note: ANTIHEROINE.co was originally founded as a magazine centred around BIPOC, but not specifically trans and queer BIPOC in its first year. One or two of the earliest posts may have been written by, or written about, cis and/or het BIPOC. We also very occasionally publish posts by cis and/or het BIPOC if we think they are important to share.
