Typical Girls: Volume Four & Five


Volume Four: Typical

For their fourth issue TG take a new direction. The team behind TG present The Typical Issue. For the first time the platform includes contributors irrespective of their gender. TG still greatly believe in the need for magazines that are by and for women. Yet, it became increasingly apparent that there is also a pressing need to bring others into the conversation. Contemporary feminism is a movement which should look to the intersections of issues of race, sexuality, class and gender in our society. It should acknowledge how these issues relate. Feminism, in seeking to dismantle our gendered and patriarchal society, is a movement which serves all genders.

The Typical Issue features an intimate look at black fatherhood across generations. Izaak T Adu invites TG into his home to discuss his FTM (Female to Male) transition, which he publicly documents through his illustrations and Instagram account (@caracalonbenzos). Nabihah Iqbal, Charlotte Dos Santos and 2U4U discuss how they create spaces for People of Colour through their music.

Volume Five: Earth

Earth is inspired by the place we all call home. Earth is an exploration of our times and how to find wellness, health and understanding within it. It’s a celebration of ordinary people across the world doing extraordinary things. With the rise of global enterprise, the urgency surrounding climate change and the mass of voices interacting on social media, we are more connected than ever before.

‘’Typical Girls felt compelled to explore these subjects in Earth because climate change is the biggest movement of today, we are bombarded with a lot of messages about climate change and the need to work as a global community, through Earth we hope to offer an alternative perspective a more positive and personal look at things happening around the world.’’ – Editor Celiya Koster

Earth takes inspiration from the four elements - earth, air, fire and water. TG speak to a female collective working in wind energy in Denmark, the first girls surf club in Sri Lanka, a candlemaker from the UK and a woman building her own sustainable home and detox ministry in Jamaica.
