A NOTE ABOUT TRIGGERING CONTENT: Much of the material contained within this zine is very intense, emotional, and personal. For this reason, we are placing a trigger warning on the entire zine. Please note that we chose not to place trigger warnings on individual pieces because we recognize that triggers are unique and highly personal. We believe that it is impossible to discern what content has the potential to be triggering to every one of our readers, and we do not want to create a hierarchy of what material is “intense” or “real” enough to warrant a warning. Please contact us if you have suggestions as to how to better incorporate trigger warnings into future issues of Hoax.
