Affinity Magazine started from the idea of a sixteen year old girl, she noticed that there was a complete lack of journalistic publications written exclusively for teens by teens. She felt that adult writers writing for teens was inauthentic, thus developing Affinity Magazine in 2013. Affinity Magazine serves a purpose of showcasing the voices of aspiring teen journalists. Mixing pop culture with social justice and politics, Affinity amplifies the voices of teens – regardless of age, gender, race, and sexual orientation. Affinity is the first social justice platform that directly caters to teens, while also addressing many significant issues that are often overlooked. Affinity Magazine is read in over 178 countries and in all 50 states. Affinity Magazine is the new cool way for teens to not only read about important news, but also have their own thoughts heard loud and clear.
