Who am I?

I started FLURT as a struggling university student. I learned how to run a magazine while I dropped out of school with an undiagnosed disability, lived in poverty and applied for social security. I came out as queer, healed from abuse and pushed for greater change around me. I wanted to create a space for young people to not only see themselves in media, but to have a say creating it as well. 

Since then, my life has improved and FLURT has turned into an essential publication for so many. We've worked hard growing our team, renovating our website and revamping our magazine - all volunteering our time while juggling work and school. Imagine how far we could go with the funds to pay for advertising, printing and distributing as well as paying well deserved, our hard-working team members. 

What is FLURT?

Aren't you tired of seeing photoshopped publications in the grocery store promoting gossip and negativity? Wouldn't it be cool to see a conscious magazine at the checkout line that not only relates to its readers but allows them to be a part of each issue? That's why FLURT strives to be an inclusive, international community that shows diversity, talks about important issues and promotes natural and ethical products. Our goal is to become the first conscious magazine on mainstream stands – and the only thing keeping us from that goal is the funding to do so.

What donations will go towards

Your donations will go towards growing our community through social media advertising like Facebook ads, organizing global events like healthy media workshops and fundraising parties and supporting those who volunteer their time to keep FLURT running. It'll also ensure that the cost of the magazine is low, so that everyone around the world will have access to essential, thought-provoking media. To help us achieve our goal of putting a conscious magazine on stands, just a couple dollars a month will make a real difference - and you'll receive some cool rewards too!
