About BABEL Magazine

BABEL Magazine is a bilingual publication that showcases the lives of people in China through written stories, interviews, photography, illustration, and poetry, highlighting the stories of groups and individuals neglected by mainstream media.

It brings visibility to marginalized communities,
combats prejudice, and fosters understanding of different realities.

Personal stories have the immense power to make people listen, see, and most importantly, to make people connect.

We believe that this connection through stories combats prejudice and dehumanization, and encourages people to be more open to understand difference rather than judging it.
