7 Reasons I Love Talking About My Period
I did a project about 'zines (small, self-published magazines) while I was in school, and I recently decided I wanted to create one of my own on a subject I care about—and one that’s sometimes considered taboo. A lot of people don't like talking about periods and will just avoid it altogether. What can I say; I like pushing the boundaries. My only real aim was to collect and share people’s menstruation-related stories. It started with me, a few friends, and some people I didn’t know submitting stuff. But then I created an Indiegogo campaign to raise money to cover the printing costs. In 16 days, I've raised close to ,000 and my story's been featured on various websites.
At the moment, my 'zine consists of illustrated pieces—some of them are comics—and one of my friends submitted a how-to guide with instructions for using a menstrual cup. I’m also including articles about polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS) and endometriosis.
