They're working to provide insight, visibility, education, and more to the under served and underrepresented stud community. Dope shit right?! Check out the press release below:
Where do masculine woman go to get information and support? Nowhere! The Stud Magazine is a Toronto based magazine to be launched this January 11th, 2011 that offers a dynamic and comprehensive look into the topics, issues and lifestyles of non-gender conforming females.
We define stud as a person belonging to either female or intersex sex that blurs societies understanding of gender. Often displaying "masculine qualities"(strong, dominate, powerful, independent, and leadership) and/or varying degrees of "masculine" appearance. Stud culture isn’t about sexuality; it’s about the way you express your gender. The Stud Magazine will dramatically change the way people think and classify gender.
This community includes females who are also a part of the gay community. The topic of homosexuality has been on the radar for years now, from political debates, large public parades, web, print and TV publications, to androgynous mainstream fashion. Yet, large sections of this community are left out and gay subject matter is exposed predominately to white homosexual men. This leaves out lesbians, people ofcolour, and intersex persons. These communities face issues around isolation, depression, and discrimination from family, work, school and society as a whole, but there are many individuals who have jumped over these hurdles to live successful lives. The Stud Magazine will enhance, showcase and promote Stud culture as well as Stud identities.
The magazine approaches these gaps and offers high quality multimedia and a content rich source for masculine women we call ‘studs.’ The magazine includes explosive sections such as, essential information on health, successful Studs and ways you can access them, career options, fashion, a comic and much more.
