This issue strives to present the viewer with an idea of how subjective and personal the experience of anxiety can be. In the vast diversity of sensations, Feels hopes to bring readers together, making a safer place for the expression of something too often relegated to the margins.

Feels is, well, a publication about feelings. It is a place to explore, to share, and to be honest. Having an open dialogue about what’s going on inside of us can foster meaningful connection and make us feel less alone, especially in the social-media era that asks us to curate and polish our lives and feelings before sharing them — if we share them at all. Feels believes there are no good or bad feelings — the value comes from how we relate to them, how we experience them, and what we learn from them.
Feels also believes in inclusion and recognizes that certain voices have been given the lion’s share of the spotlight throughout history. Their pages are for everyone, and they do not accept pieces that further marginalize. They are a feminist, sex-positive, 2SLGBTQ*, anti-racist, anti-colonial publication.
