Absent Cause #1

I created Absent Cause to explore topics that resonate with me and many people whose work I respect and admire: underground cultures, radical politics, hidden histories, feminist and queer sexualities, and chosen families; the gothic, vampirism, horror, dark music and paganism; surviving abuse, coping with mental illness, self-harm, body image and suicidal feelings; and the incredible array of ways they intersect.

The first issue of Absent Cause features over 20 contributors, including Velocity Chyaldd, singer/songwriter of the underground NYC band Vulgaras; Arab-American student organizer Tina Elshalakany; renowned transgender poet and performance artist Imani Henry; Maximum Rock-n-Roll columnist and AK Press author Jessica Mills; and an array of activists, artists and writers.
