Geeked is an illustration-led quarterly magazine with an urban feminist slant on art, culture and gender. Who are we? We are women and men who locate ourselves in the LGBT and Straight communities. Our mission is to fashion a creative, independent platform for people like us and to foster a progressive, can-do community focused on human dignity and diversity. Women are central to this mission but all urban-dwellers who support women and who want to fight for human rights are welcome and encouraged.

The Illustration Issue, is what we believe to be our finest work to date. One of our favourite (and most appreciated!) artists, Rosa Middleton, has covered this issue with her art; literally from front to back, and everything in between! We’ve got thoughtful op-ed pieces about foundational illustrators—see Georgia Butler’s article on the Lichtenstein Retrospective—as well articles exploring exciting new projects like Nine Worlds GeekFest. Our regular column, ‘A Word From the Y’, is occupied this quarter by the inspiring Dr. Will Brooker who explains his motivations for creating the fantastic new web comic My So Called Secret Identity. And for a healthy dose of wit and sarcasm, check out Chloe Mavrommatis’ op-ed about The Hawkeye Initiative and Rule 63.
