ROOT-ed Zine on Joy

When we reflect on the disasters of the past year, the word joy is unlikely to be brought up. Many of us have had a joy-deprived year, with family deaths, lockdowns, environmental anxieties, isolation, and more. That is why we felt it was important to create content that is focused on joy. We want to normalise joy again. Joy, especially for marginalised communities, is such a radical act. There are many factors that try to rob us of our joy from racism, classism, homophobia, fatphobia, Islamaphobia, and the ways in which all these manifest quite literally attacks us from all angles. We hope this page can be that.
