“I’d like to welcome you to the first issue of Pizza Face, a magazine designed as a space for you, youth of all gender identities, to learn, experiment, and come together in the process of shaping your identity in this big and sometimes scary world! Many years ago, a band called Bikini Kill said that “doing/reading/seeing/hearing cool things that validate and challenge us can help us gain strength and a sense of community.” They said these cool things help us figure out how to be happy in the world, and we agree! We hope Pizza Face can show you some cool things that will both encourage and challenge you (and that are also just plain fun)!”
—Malone DeYoung, Editor
