Daily Prompt: IMHO
Link to an item in the news you’ve been thinking about lately, and write the op-ed you’d like to see published on the topic.
IMHO the world don’t need no more stinking wedding mags, BUT here I am contradicting myself.
Rarely in the news do you see a super cool, splendidly awesome concept before it’s launched. I came across this unconventional promise of a wedding magazine this morning, which you can read here on Yahoo.
Weddings, known to bring out the zilla in the best and worse of us alike, are one of life’s seminal moments. This mag isn’t a cure for the zillas, but it promises to be a space that broadens the canned dialogue and pictorial representation of the traditional wedding by traditional models. Picture a wedding magazine that captures love in all its forms and features couples of all walks and persuasions: same-sex, disabled, may/december, interracial, etc.
“Catalyst is for everyone who feels under-represented, without a voice, or absent altogether from an industry that glamorizes spending, tradition, and the same old race/gender/sexual politics,” Liz Susong, Editor-in-Chief
I’m not in any way affiliated with this mag, but I’m a sucker for anyone and anything that works to broaden thinking. I’m sending sparkly thoughts of positivity through the ether to a successful and enduring launch of Catalyst Wedding Co, which I hope serves as a catalyst for dialogue.
