Dope Girls zine is a cannabis culture publication that gives young female and non-binary creatives a platform to share their stories and artwork. Based in Atlanta, the zine was founded by Beca Grimm and Rachel Hortman whose goal is to empower females within the cannabis community after noticing a general lack of representation.
Having released six volumes so far -- with two issues released per year -- Dope Girls zine donates a portion of sales proceeds to local organization Planned Parenthood Southeast and sells a range of exclusive merchandise on its online platform. In addition to purchasing issues online, readers can support Dope Girl's creative community by purchasing one of several enamel pin designs, graphic tee-shirts or a logo-adorned dad hat accessory.
Creatives looking to submit art to Dope Girls can reach out with submissions centered around topics like feminism, advocacy, progressive politics and body positivity among others.
