The Sick Issue


The Sick Issue


We will all become sick at some point in our lives, but thanks to booming wellness-focused industries and a cultural aversion to aging, death, and grief, we still prioritize youth and willfully misunderstand health. Our Sick issue aims to disrupt our insistence on remaining in a perpetual loop of remaining healthy at all costs by opening us all up to realities, like the emotional and mental toll of being repeatedly laid off, queer spaces perpetuating ableism, the cost of our Western fascination with Indian wellness, and police brutality being an inescapable force in the United States. Through it all, we examine a single question: How does our fear of sickness prevent us from confronting it every aspect of our lives?
