Aorta Magazine

Started in early 2008, Aorta Magazine is the militant love child of a small collective of hard working artists. We do bi-annual limited print runs, we are self-produced, self-distributed, community funded, and we consider each copy of Aorta to be a work of art in itself. Our goals are three-fold: to improve the visibility of a group of artists who are significantly marginalized on the basis of their gender and/or sexuality, to be a source of documentation for the legitimacy and ingenuitive creativity of this group, and to serve as a space of free artistic expression and a vehicle for social change through the avenue of independent media.
