|Eir Magazine is about freedom and joy in expressing the gender(s) of one's choosing in a fashion-conscious, cutting-edge way.
To some people, this is a scary idea, and it may be a while before Eir has any recognition in the mainstream. however, it speaks to the needs of a diverse group of populations, including (but not limited to):
-Women who take fashion tips from gay men
-Crossdressers and their admirers
-The gay, lesbian, and bisexual community
-Intersexuals (formerly known as hermaphrodites)
Eir's mission is as follows:
To provide a magazine that gives its readers the capactiy to explore new things, to talk about: make up AND bulking up, building AND decorating, gender-passing AND gender-screwing ...with an emphasis on body control and freedom. A real effort is being made to include female, male and intersexed people responsibly, and in an equally positive light. Upon their bodies, we intend to celebrate gender presentations that are masculine, feminine, both, neither or something else entirely, within a variety of styles.
One catch: gendered words. Eir Magazine encourages the use of nonbiased words, such as "person," "parent," "partner" and gender neutral pronouns, rather than words that points to the sex/gender of a person, unless it is part of a quote or absolutely necessary for context. We wish to promote inclusion of gender-neutral words in the English language, and are willing to lead by example.
