Shine ALOUD Magazine is an educational resource, predominantly created by young people for young people. 

Shine ALOUD Magazine has been a major part of our work to date that has allowed us to work with a range of young creatives to create our unique publication in addition to publishing age appropriate and relevant content to tackle a range of topics relating to sexuality, some of which include parenthood, peer pressure, contraception and personal hygiene.

Through the work that we do, we are keen to create sex positivity and tackle sexual health inequalities particularly among marginalised groups.

Each issue focuses on a particular theme and going forward we are keen to work with brands and organisations that are as passionate as we are about address sexual health and wellness amongst young people nationally and internationally. 

We are aware of the saturated magazine market and we would like to bring a sense or originality that will allow people to talk more comfortably about sex and relationship entwined with that of News, Politics, Music, Fashion, Culture and more
