Intersectional Apocalypse is a student-made, student-run, and student-edited online journal which makes centring marginalised voices and experiences a priority.

Covering all the highs, lows, and in-betweens of navigating online spaces, we welcome diverse and dissonant perspectives. This is where you come in: be they positive or negative, we want to hear about your experiences! Tell us how aspects of your identity have influenced the way you interact online!
