Hello, Stand Up is a political magazine dedicated towards empowering young people. We started our platform in February 2017 because we were sick of the alt-right (aka fascists), Trump, Leavers and politicians not being held to account. Our journalism cuts through the bullshit. We look at what’s impacting young people and we try to do everything with an intersectional lens.

In issue 1 alone, we had content on supporting student sex workers, features on body positivity and we spoke to a Mexican student activist on how young people in Mexico are being oppressed. We also had interviews with viral Teen Vogue writer Lauren Duca, the respected entrepreneur Lord Bilimoria and legendary protest musician Boff Whalley.

Since issue 1, we’ve grown at a phenomenal rate. Issue 2 has been launched which has examined trans rights, looked at the impact of microaggressions and explored whether the arts are exclusionary to queer people. We’ve developed our own website and managed to launch a new section, Nerdom, to go with our Politics, Everyday Activism, Millennial Lives and Margins content. We want all of the work we produce to be engaging but also, ultimately, empowering.

Stand Up is looking to become a social enterprise which means we will be not-for-profit. We want to keep investing in the magazine so that we can give platforms to people who are often silenced in society. It's why we wanted to join Patreon, which has been a hub for marginalised creatives. Our revenue from Patreon will be used to pay off business costs (such as maintaining our website) and so that we can move towards paying guest writers. By becoming our patron, you're investing in a media platform trying to do things differently and most importantly, you'll be gaining exclusive access to our content and to an array of rewards.
