It’s been a great summer for Shameless! We had a really fun launch for issue 17 with lots of awesome bands like Phoenix Pagliacci and Spitfist, and the amazing comedian Mae Martin, and a great yard sale last week that brought out a lot of cool people from the neighbourhood to support the magazine and find some great deals.
We’re looking forward to the Fall, when we launch our fantastic new issue on politics, featuring stories on the many ways we can engage in politics, whether it be voting, running for office, getting involved in your community or being an activist. We look particularly at the politics of Indigenous sovereignty, and women and revolutions in the Middle East and North Africa. We’ve also got a how-to guide to sewing your own book bag, plus tips on finding the coolest plus-sized shops on the continent.
Being a part of Shameless is fun, and we encourage you to get involved, whether it’s through sending us feedback, contributing to the mag or the blog, or signing up for a subscription. We need your help to keep publishing, and one special way you can help is to join the Hall of Shameless!
For as little as $5 per month, you can help us to continue to put Shameless in the hands of young women and trans youth across the country.
As a Hall of Shameless member, you will receive an ongoing subscription to Shameless and free entry to all of our events. More importantly, you will be an integral part of ensuring that Shameless will keep publishing the bold, critical content readers have come to know and love, and will continue to bring a much-needed voice to young women and trans youth across Canada.
You can sign up here.
Don’t take our word for it. See what others have to say:
“As a teenage activist, Shameless was a space where I actually got to see and be inspired by other young feminists. As a twenty something activist - I still find inspiration in the pages of Shameless and pass it on to people whenever I can!”
— Kaley Kennedy, former editorial collective member, Hall Of Shameless member and student activist
“[Shameless] deals with real issues —important stuff — not how to flirt… this is a magazine for real girls.”
— Shannon, 14, Regina, Saskatchewan
We hope you’ve had a great summer too. Stay tuned for Issue #18 and more amazing Shameless events.
