HONEYSUCKLE MAGAZINE is a print and digital magazine that emphasizes diverse voices, personal testimony, and visual impact.

Comprised of our flagship digital and print publication, Honeysuckle Magazine provides an outlet that emphasizes diverse perspectives and creative expression. Our flagship brand explores gender and sexuality, racial politics, sustainability, and pop culture. Honey Pot Magazine, our cannabis-exclusive print and digital publication, is a first-of-its-kind culture and business guide exploring the dynamic cannabis industry with a feminine edge. The content is wise yet provocative and aims at normalizing the discussions of taboo topics. We curate a publication that analyzes society, all the while providing a platform for real people to learn something new and to make sense of their place in our constantly evolving world, Our reporting reflects who we are. Our writers tend to ‘live what they write’ rather than just reporting on a topic.

 

Awards: 

Honeysuckle’s journalism aided in the compassionate release of DaReta Gail Stevenson, who was incarcerated for 22 years.  In need of a life-saving bone marrow transplant for leukemia and positive for COVID, DeReta Steverson, incarcerated at the California Institution for Women (CIW), was still not eligible for compassionate release in California, even under the state’s much-hyped release program, and was instead accruing medical debt and traumatized by the healthcare she does receive; from denial of treatment to being shackled while receiving chemotherapy

“Due to the publication in Honeysuckle magazine approximately 8000 signatures were able to be collected with the hyperlink being added. The power of Journalism is vital and telling the story changes the narrative. Medical Release for DaReta Gail Steverson W81914,” Shawanna Vaugh, founder of Silent Cry  

Honeysuckle received the New York State Assembly’s Citation Award from Assemblywoman Inez E. Dickens of the 70th district for “significant contribution to the culture and community of New York City,” and another from State Senator Brian Benjamin for “a progressive stance on the social and economic issues that plague our society.” 

We were a recent recipient of the GlobalGiving Red Backpack made possible by The Spanx by Sara Blakely Foundation.  “We’re proud to announce the grantees of The Red Backpack Fund. They have successfully undergone GlobalGiving’s rigorous vetting process, and we believe this grant will help them continue to thrive, despite the shifting economic circumstances brought on by this crisis,” said GlobalGiving CEO Alix Guerrier. “The world needs more women-led organizations who are a key force in overcoming COVID-19 and establishing a better normal.”
