Last Minute Gift Ideas: Subscribe

Still looking for some last minute gift ideas? Give the gift of literacy! Or actually, hopefully whoever you're shopping for will already have the gift of literacy... Give the gift of something good to read!! Order a subscription to a great magazine!

As you may have already realized from previous blog entries, we're BIG fans of Bust Magazine and Bitch Magazine.

If you decide to become a "monthly sustainer" of Bitch - by joining the B-Hive and making a tax-deductible donation (which can be as little as five or ten dollars a month) - they'll give you a subscription for free. Here, we'll let the bees explain it to you.

But if that isn't exactly your thing (why not!?) we've got plenty more options for you...

Buy a gift subscription to VenusZine before December 31 for the chance to win a prize, including an iPod Classic with a custom designed Venus Zine cover.

CURVE, the nation's best-selling lesbian magazine, offers a "fresh, exciting and cutting-edge look at the worlds of entertainment, politics, fashion, travel and sports - all from a lesbian perspective."

You can sign up for a full year of the digital edition of Nylon Magazine (or their male counterpart Nylon Guys) for only $4.95.

Missbehave Magazine is a whip-smart testament to urbane awesomeness published quarterly in Brooklyn New York. Metropolitan, multicultural, young, intelligent, and sexy ladies now have a journal that speaks to them specifically about all the many facets of of their lifestyle. We got hot kicks, bananas manicures, dope jewelry, downtown gossip, and the latest in lust-worthy fashion.

Spread Magazine is a magazine for sex workers, sex worker outreach and labor rights.

make/shift magazine creates and documents contemporary feminist culture and action by publishing journalism, critical analysis, and visual and text art. Made by an editorial collective committed to antiracist, transnational, and queer perspectives, make/shift embraces the multiple and shifting identities of feminist communities.

And for our friends up north... Shameless Magazine is Canada's independent voice for smart, strong, sassy young women. It's a fresh alternative to typical teen magazines, for girls who know there's more to life than makeup and diet tips.

Don't forget about the younger girls in your life! Get them a membership to New Moon Girls, which includes a subscription to their magazine as well as access to their online community. "Safe. Educational. Advertising-Free. Girls ages 8 to 12 develop their full potential through self-discovery, creativity, and community in an environment designed to build self-esteem and promote positive body image in the important tween years."

Of course, if you're still not sure what to get for us for the holidays, the ESC will happily accept subscriptions to any of the above magazines. We'll also accept suggestions, so if you think we left some awesome publication off the list, let us know!
