This Pride Month, XYZ is highlighting our inspiring LGTBQ+ members of the .xyz community. Previously, we’ve featured software platform Pronouny.xyz, which is designed to simplify and promote the practice of sharing personal pronouns and gender-neutral language. We introduced you to 3D designer and software instructor Erindale Woodford, who uses Erindale.xyz to display their design work and online coursework. We showcased multimedia collective SuperstarX.xyz, which is aimed at destigmatizing and celebrating our differences. These LGTBQ+ members help define our community with their innovation, creativity, and pride. In this week’s #WebsiteWednesday, we’ll share another LGBTQ+ member of the .xyz community whose website can serve as an inspiration for your own prideful online presence.
TrashMag.xyz is the online home of women and queer-led independent zine Trash Mag, a publication aimed at cultivating community through creativity. The zine has core values such as independence, empathy, vulnerability, community, and representation, which help inform and guide their issues. Each issue features submissions from around the world, including an interview with Madison Sinclair from the Harry Styles and Twilight-focused merch brand, BugGirl200, and an essay on normalizing embarrassing moments, because we all have them. TrashMag.xyz is currently managed by friends Sara Ghassemzadeh and Bergen Flom. Sara is a queer Persian artist and Sociology student living in Pasadena, California, while Bergen is an artist and ad agency creative living in New York City. Together they also design music and gallery events in cities around the United States.
The platform is also home to an online marketplace featuring digital and physical copies of Trash Mag, as well as unique merchandise like earrings, stickers, totes, and T-shirts. TrashMag.xyz uses the branded email address [email protected] to correspond with readers and interested writers, which helps to generate trust. As highlighted in our recent Quarterly Report, when you have an email address directly associated with your domain name, customers can use that email address to find your website and have confidence that they’re reaching out to the appropriate contact. You can learn more by following the zine on Facebook and Instagram, by subscribing on Patreon, or by visiting TrashMag.xyz.
We appreciate our forward-thinking, collaborative, and creative .xyz community members like TrashMag.xyz. We wish everyone a safe, celebratory, and happy Pride Month. Please be excellent to each other.
