ABOUT: TYFN is a radical self-publishing project by and for womxn, femmes and gender non-conforming people of color. VOL. II will be released in alongside the TYFN visual art exhibition at Adobe Books & Arts Co-Op on June 2nd (more TBA)!
In times of the unrequited, emotions are not always explicit for interpretation; they are complex, often intertwined in the fleeting moments left untold, the apprehensions at being entitled, and the disappointment that accompany the receipt of what seems like ‘nothing.’ It can be felt in the loss of a love that was too distant to begin with, the rejection from a state built on false promises of freedom and equality, the fears of feeling like you’re never enough, and the nostalgic yearning of a place you once called home.
It is here that we reclaim the messy, ambiguous and otherwise defiant parts of ourselves--the parts in which normative standards render too illegible to speak of. In doing so, we bring about moments for collective grieving, healing, and a critical intervention into the white heteropatriarchal logics which plague our most intimate and public relationships, spaces, and things.
>>>How do we process and heal in times of unrequited love, respect, care?<<<
