Magazine Overlord/Executive Director
Lashonda is a musician, writer, and creative born and raised in Columbus, Ohio and currently based in Central Ohio. Aside from running UnBound and working on creative projects, she works with Kaleidoscope Youth Center as the Ohio GSA Network Coordinator. She also teaches yoga classes in-person, online, and through YouTube. Among being obsessed with her pets, plants, astrophysics, and burlesque shows, her favorite thing in the world is laying on the couch and playing video games.
Editing Warlord/Assistant Director
Anne is a young, independent woman who is new to Columbus, Ohio. Born a writer, Anne’s voice has always been more powerful via written word than it is spoken. She is excited to join the Unbound team, as it allows her to express herself and contribute to a project she believes in. Anne enjoys frequenting coffee shops, baking, and exploring cool places with her friends in her spare time.
Witch of the Adobe Suite/Publishing Lead
Enkfi is a 23 year old artist from Melbourne, Australia. An aggressive advocate for social justice, they spend their not-free-time (aside from working on UnBound) studying BIPOC history from around the world, especially Indigenous history and the history of injustice in their home of So-Called-Australia, expanding their knowledge as the budding anthropologist they are. They spend their free time cooking, getting lost in Tolkien novels, making visual art ranging from digital to oil-on-canvas to pencils on paper, and making best friends with their Animal Crossing villagers.
Legendary Pokemon/Administrative Assistant
Astraea did not give us a bio. She is determined to remain an enigma to the public.
Shield Maiden/Administrative Assistant
Erin is a 24-year-old queer feminist chick from Columbus, Ohio. Her goals are to become a jack of all trades, live a life dedicated to human rights advocacy, and one day have a home full of pets and plants. Erin enjoys writing, gardening, cooking, getting high and letting her mind wander, nature walks, playing D&D, and occasionally churning out something artistic.
Pied Piper/Social Media Director
Originally from Portland, Oregon, Heather currently lives with her two cats, Franklin and Presley, and teaches middle school in Memphis, Tennessee. She is an advocate, ally, and activist for POC, LGBTQ+, and feminist movements and communities and a frequent contributor to UnBound Zine.
Lizard Wrangler/Art Lead
Lexie is a queer, radically feminist artist based in Columbus, Ohio. Her work includes paintings, comics, animation, photography, and physical installations among many other projects. Some of her current projects include collaboration on a mixed-media fantasy novel as well as collaboration on a story-telling project where she uses comics to represent interview experiences of people of color.
MJ Damsen is an illustrator, printmaker, and all-around delightfully disgusting person.
Born and raised in Columbus, they are equipped with a degree in Illustration from the Rhode Island School of Design (Class of 2019). Today you can catch them in their basement making jewelry and comics about gender, studying queer film, and playing Japanese Mafia games.
They like collages, comics, and collecting evidence of bigfoot (for real, ask them to take you to the Mothman bunkers).
They’d also like to issue a formal apology to anyone who they’ve spent hours showing cat pictures to.

MARK ZUCKERBERG (who's the guy that created facebook?)
UnBound Zine is a fully online magazine founded in October 2019. UnBound is a space for womyn, nonbinary, and trans creatives to share their works in a community that is often dominated and controlled by cismale gatekeepers. It is harder than ever to find publications or websites that make it easy to publish our creative works. We are committed to remaining free of unnecessary limitations and roadblocks for our artists, writers, and other creatives who need our space to share their works and their voices. Don't forget to check out the amazing people who make up our team by visiting the About Us menu!
Since current issues of the magazine are completely FREE, please consider donating to the zine so that we can continue to own our site domain, use cool web tools, and use the programs, fonts, and other resources that give us the best possible format/resources for creating and distributing these works! Your donations keep us alive and keep us thriving!
Our website is still growing and changing, so bear with us through our exciting new updates and tweaks to the setup. If you experience any site or zine issues, do not hesitate to reach out to and let us know what's happening!
