LYR Issue 17 benefits the clients of Abuse and Counseling Treatment, Inc. LYR will donate 250 copies of the literary and therapeutic arts zine annually to ACT for use with their clients, who are victims of sexual assault, domestic abuse, and human trafficking. This was made possible in part by a grant to LYR from the City of Fort Myers.
LYR founder and Chair of the Board of Directors, Angela Page, has been making zines since 2011 under the name Love Your Rebellion. In fact, the zine is where Page derived the nonprofit’s name. As the organization’s namesake, the zine is the longest-running program, beginning as a literary publication, and growing to include therapeutic arts activities. The current LYR zine staff includes licensed marriage and family therapist, Rebeecca Martinez-Thomas, graphic artists Michelle Caraway and Annie Pritchard, content developer Angela Page, photographer Jesi Cason, sound engineers Spencer Elles and Gregory Martinez-Thomas, and copy editor Shandi Thompson.
