What is Dismantle?

Fashion and pop culture are important parts of everyday life and politics, but we don’t often have opportunities to dig deep into how these things connect us to larger communities and power structures.

Dismantle Magazine is all about how understanding fashion, pop culture and social issues can help us dismantle systems of oppression.

We feature the work of writers, scholars, activists, and artists in a supportive, collaborative environment.

Our goal is to be a framework for doing rather than a site for telling.

We are an ad-free, completely independent space for exchanging and exploring stories. The site is supported by contributions from Patreon. Every contribution from Patreon goes directly to maintaining the website and supporting writers.
