Is an independent and hybrid publisher crafting books that serve as community resources for and by historically marginalized groups. We center Queer and BIPOC voices in our authorship, staff, and collaborations. Many of our books are about caregiving, community building, equity, and self-actualization.
We envision a world in which
Books empower & celebrate communities we walk in.
Equitable business models center collective liberation as the rule, not the exception, and offer makers dignity, autonomy, and creative voice.
Our planet is prioritized over profit.
Publishing practices are accessible and gate-free.
Creatively satisfying, financially viable, and relationally resonant work.
