About Us

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 teenage magazines were inauthentic, so she began developing Affinity in 2013. Affinity 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 200 countries and in all 50 states. Affinity Magazine is the new way for teens to not only read about important news but also have their own thoughts heard loud and clear.
