Citizen Creator

You don’t have to be a rock star, social influencer or A-list celebrity (if you are that’s cool too!) to make a positive difference in your local community or the world at large. Every day, everyday people just like you and me are rising above the confines of their own individual concerns, working toward the greater concerns of all humanity. We want to celebrate these people, and that’s why we’ve developed the Citizen Creator section.

If you have a story or experience that you’d like to share, either about yourself or someone you know who is living beyond self and making the world a better place, we would love to hear from you! Check out our submission and editorial guidelines to share your story.

Sunday, Jul 4th, 2021 - I spent so much of my life trying to be someone I’m not. Very early on I actively tried to blend in, not wanting to think about the fact that I might be different. Read More »

Same Old Brand New Me

Thursday, Jul 1st, 2021 - I have known for years that gender is a spectrum but it was as if that wasn’t allowed to apply to me, that it was for others.
