Razorcake/Gorsky Press, Inc. got together as a nonprofit to educate people in what we love and live: independent music-specifically DIY punk-and the community surrounding it. Some of the ways we do this are through, but not limited to, making and distributing a bi-monthly magazine (that would be Razorcake), publishing books and other literary material (that would be Gorsky Press), pressing records (Razorcake Records), this website, and live performances.
We greatly appreciate any and all donations.
WHO WE ARE..
Razorcake provides consistent coverage of do-it-yourself punk culture that you won’t find anywhere else. We believe in positive, progressive, community-friendly DIY punk. We do our part.
DIY punk culture is often misrepresented, misunderstood, and the target of corporate exploitation. Razorcake supports a legit community of punk music and culture as the only bona fide 501(c)(3) non-profit music magazine in America.
Our bi-monthly fanzine is a one-of-a-kind resource for the DIY punk community. Over the years, Razorcake has developed this resource to help document every facet of this culture. The Razorcake Gorsky umbrella also includes book publishing, record pressing, live shows and readings, and a thriving web presence that maintains weekly podcasts, webcomics, and videos.
Our open participation policy means anyone can become a contributor. Currently, Razorcake offers a forum for over 180 long-term independent volunteer writers, photographers, illustrators, and musicians from around the world. We take pride in our scenes and represent them internationally. We also distribute the magazine to over twenty countries.
DIY punk is an exciting, evolving culture that can thrive outside of corporate interests. Our goal is to continue operating a modern framework where this community of independent, DIY punk can continue.
…AND WHY YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT IS STILL NEEDED!
Our challenge is to continue carefully expanding Razorcake while maintaining high standards.
One of our most pertinent concerns is keeping the price of subscriptions and ethical DIY advertising as affordable as
possible. It is crucial we remain accessible to people of modest income. The challenge is we also need revenue to grow. Donations can help cover those costs.
We are currently able to donate
a significant amount of every new issue to community centers, libraries, and other public spaces. We are able to do this because of your annual donations. Thanks for keeping Razorcake accessible to those who need it the most.
If you are of the means, please consider a tax deductible donation to Razorcake.
