Gucci gets its philanthropy on for the latest issue of CHIME zine, a periodical publication dedicated to amplifying the voices of activists and artists around the world calling for gender equality.

Gucci's creative director Alessandro Michele does more than just design clothes for the uber-rich – he is also a vocal supporter of the gender equality movement. CHIME FOR CHANGE, a global campaign founded by Gucci in 2013, aims to convene, unite and strengthen the voices speaking out for gender equality. To date, the campaign has raised a whopping $17.5 million to support projects and advocacy in 89 countries.

The path to equality? Zine-making, apparently. To mark the occasion of International Day of the Girl, Gucci has launched the latest issue of CHIME zine, a periodical publication dedicated to amplifying the voices of activists and artists around the world calling for gender equality. The zine is jam-packed with conversations, interviews and thoughts; highlights include a conversation with Judy Heumann, Chella Man and Andraéa LaVant on gender and the disability movement, an essay by Noura Erakat on Palestine as a feminist issue, and an article from Omna Tigray on rape as a tool of war in Ethiopia. The cover features a quote from the late Stacey Park Milbern, a disability justice activist who stressed the importance of listening to LGBTQIA+ and BIPOC voices in the disability community.

The new issue of CHIME zine is available digitally on Gucci Equilibrium, Gucci’s platform for social impact and sustainability, and will be available in print later this year at the Gucci Garden in Florence and the Gucci Wooster Bookstore in New York.
