The Kit Compact's September issue is distinguished by having five covers, featuring Gen Z “Queen Bees”. Copies of the five versions of the pop-up magazine are being given out in downtown Toronto (not at all coincidental with the TIFF film festival) and one cover selected for each additional participating city, including Calgary, Edmonton, Ottawa and Vancouver.
“Each image was so beautiful, we couldn’t choose just one,” explains Giorgina Bigioni, publisher of The Kit, about why five cover images were selected. “We had to showcase them all.”This issue features talented Canadian women in film, a portrait series on young women and faith, and original fiction by a 16-year old author.
“The women we spoke to in this issue reaffirmed my belief in the power of hope,” says Laura deCarufel, editor-in-chief. “The believe they can do anything. I believe them.”
