SHOW YOUR SKIN (SYS) is an online literary journal aimed at creating a SAFE(r) space for outsider art meant to disturb, disrupt, and discomfort, though we love and read and will publish absolutely anything. we want to stand as a reminder that discomfort and disruption can exist without the potential to fundamentally offend.
SYS stands vigilantly against misogyny, racism, transphobia, ableism, and work insensitive to trauma survivors. SYS exists as a space to privilege the voices of people of color, women trans and non-binary and gender non-conforming people, those with mental or chronic illnesses, people with dis/different abilities, and any other person whose identities are challenged and invalidated in broader spaces.
SYS is edited and run and tweeted by c phillips (@yourmorals)
