Opening the pages of the first issue of the CHIME Zine.
Published by Gucci, and edited by community organizer Adam Eli, the zine features contributions from activists, artists and writers around the world.
Articles include singer songwriter Gola’s account of her childhood in Iran, where she cut her hair short and pretended to be a boy so she could live without the country’s enforced constrictions of females in Hijabs. Model Hanne Gaby talks about being born intersex and her campaigning to end intersex surgery on infants and children. Also inside the zine is a poem written about Joan of Arc in 1429—capturing the joy and optimism Joan of Arc brought to the war-torn French people.
The CHIME Zine will be available at the Gucci Wooster Bookstore in New York, the Gucci Garden in Florence and select bookstores worldwide. Additionally, in partnership with 1 Granary, the zine will be distributed to universities in Belgium, Finland, France, Israel, Italy, Ukraine, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
