New online magazine covers – and is written by – adoptees

Gazillion Voices logoGazillion Voices, the online monthly magazine that launched last summer, grew out of the “Land of Gazillion Adoptees” blog written by Korean adoptee Kevin Haebeom Vollmers, now co-editor of the magazine.

Vollmers wanted to “create a platform for adoptees and their allies to bring topics important to the adoption community to life through rich, compelling, and thought-provoking content that will be accessible to the broader community and will ultimately reframe and reshape the conversation about adoption.”

It aims to offer content that will be accessible to a broad audience: Exclusive cover stories; columns and opinion pieces; film and photo essays that show adoptees in their everyday lives; podcasts that dive into complex issues; video interviews with adoptees from all across the US and world; and thoughts and perspectives about research/policy/legislation, arts/culture, literature, and food.

Co-editors are Kevin Vollmers of Minneapolis, kevinhaebeomvollmers@gmail.com, and Shelise Gieseke, an adoptee who grew up in New Ulm, MN.
