We’re an award-nominated independent publication, uplifting the first-person stories and opinions of marginalised genders (women, non-binary people and trans men).
Who we are
Hello! Aurelia is made possible by the work of three Northern people of colour; Kya (Founder & Editor-in-Chief), Shahed (Deputy Editor) and Amelia (Assistant Editor). Between us we oversee all of the direction, projects, editorial, design, social media, admin and everything in-between. You can read a bit more about all of us here.
Why we exist
Aurelia was born out of a love for the incredibly important and powerful form of personal writing. We are entirely dedicated to spotlighting thoughts, feelings and experiences, in an effort to encourage readers to slow down and connect with one another.
What we do
We commission freelance writers every month, covering topics such as identity, lifestyle, love and connection, and personal responses to news, politics and culture.

We are incredibly reliant on reader support to keep going. If you like what we do and what we stand for – please consider supporting us with a one-off donation or by becoming a member today.
