Inclusive Future Magazine: a peek into The Bigger Vision
We chose the theme of the first issue of Inclusive Future Magazine, Issue 1: Visions from a Gender-Inclusive Future because the three of us are non-binary and can speak from personal experience about what it feels like to live in a society that excludes us from the narrative of daily realities. But our vision for Inclusive Future Magazine does not stop at a gender-inclusive future. Should this venture be successful, we have Big Plans.
We want to publish more issues, each one taking on a different justice theme, and each one edited by paid guest editors from marginalized communities appropriate to the theme. Themes like:
Racial and ethnic justice
Disability and accessibility
Transformative justice systems
For future issues, guest editors will come up with the subtitle, write the calls for submissions, and choose the cover art and the anthology’s content. As the Editorial Board, our role in the production of future issues will be a purely facilitative one, helping behind the scenes as directed by the guest editors so they can focus on the theme and content of their anthology.
And when we allow ourselves to Dream Really Big, after several years of publishing themed issues, we imagine combining them all into one collection as a way of providing a more holistic and complex vision for an inclusive, just future.
This is why, when you back Inclusive Future Magazine, Issue 1 on Kickstarter, you’re not just saying you want to know what a world inclusive of genders outside the binary looks like, you’re also saying you want to know what an inclusive, just world for everyone looks like.
