What Is Perversion?
Perversion is a multimedia organization, featuring art, literature, music and fashion. Perversion revolves around one of the etymological roots of the word "perversion," which is something that has been corrupted from its original form. We aim to pervert traditional notions of art and expression to bring you what we find to be beautiful.
We feature artists from all over the world and accept submissions on a 24/7 basis via our website. We are currently based out of Jacksonville, Sarasota, Tallahassee, Newark (DE), and are expanding to more cities across the U.S with every passing week.
We released our inaugural issue, which was entirely self-funded, in April 2014, and we're excited to bring you Issue Two at the end of August. Our first print run was limited to a small quantity and was just a sample of what we can do. Although we're very proud of our first-born, we're even more excited about our sophomore debut.
And even though our hearts bleed ink for the world of print, the digital word is our mistress. On our website perversionmag.com we showcase and update content multiple times a week, and we also feature in-house video series such as The Yellow Apartment, The Simpletons, and more to come.
Why You Should Donate
With your help, we're hoping to quadruple in size with our second print run. We want to print about 2,000 magazines, so we can get them in as many venues as possible. It's our mission to get our magazine in the hands of more people that want to read them and become part of what we're doing.
We're also excited to continue with, and expand on, our in-house productions, procure office space in Jacksonville, and begin to pay our employees for all of the hard and beautiful work they consistently do.
We're not asking you to throw money at us blindly, either. We have tons of interesting items for you to purchase and enjoy while simultaneously supporting our cause. So join us and release your inner pervert.
Tokens of Our Affection
Yes, we have toys for you.
Some people like those things called shirts; we have 'em bundled with Issue Two. We'll also throw in a dashing PM sticker.
And if you're not into material goods, we have our Issue Two available in both print and digital download, and multiple combo bundles. Please understand that buying something from us isn't just a superficial, everyday commodity of consumption (that's a mouthful); it's also a way for you to support a group of people trying to make a difference in the art and publishing world. We love doing what we're doing, we love the content we get to feature, and it's our dream to continue perverting.
If you're unable to donate right now, show your support elsewhere by submitting your creative work to us, following us on our social media platforms (@perversionmag Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram), or by telling your Aunt, Stepmom, and milkman about us.
