colloquially, “TRICK” is a term used to refer to a sex worker’s client.
for so long, sex workers have been demeaned and stigmatized by society for accepting money in exchange for sexual services.

Rico Nasty, Megan Thee Stallion and other female rappers often use “trick” unapologetically in their lyrics to challenge the power dynamics of their relationships.
trick magazine was founded by three women based out of tkaronto, canada, with the goal of redefining creative storytelling.
any and all subjects, no matter how taboo, are explored and celebrated at trick. our goal, simply put, is to create a safe space for all kinds of art. 

provocative. overconfident. experimental. 

that’s what trick is.

favourite time of day
Having a few hours to myself in the morning before anyone else is awake centers me for the day.

favourite film
It’s always changing! But my favourite director is definitely Wes Anderson. I love his cinematography, and I appreciate that his films always have a curated ~vibe. Also shoutout to Margot Tenenbaum for being an absolute queen.

my idea of a perfect night
Dancing around a clean room listening to music, sipping wine or tea – or both!

artist that changed my life
I always find myself always going back to Lauryn Hill. What I love most about her is how emotionally honest her songs are.

what does trick magazine mean to me?
I’ve always wanted to be a part of something that encourages me to express myself safely, freely and openly. Trick is just that – a platform for folks to feel valued and to express what they want to. I hope that we can all learn and grow in this beautiful space together.

Chungking Express is my favourite, it is so incredibly dreamy.

artist that changed my life
Nirvana turned my 13-year-old self’s world upside down. Not to be dramatic but I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for Kurt Cobain.

what does trick magazine mean to me? 
For me, Trick Magazine is a space for anyone who wishes to explore themselves and their artistic visions without limits. It’s incredibly important for me to help create a space where creative, marginalized voices can flourish and be heard.

favourite animal
I’m so fascinated by snakes; their hunting tactics, the way they maneuver, the length they grow to. They’ve always been my dream pet. 

my idea of a perfect day
Laying on the beach, listening to the waves crash on the shore, drinking white wine.

artist that changed your life 
Beyonce’s performances used to be an event in my family. We would all sit and watch her perform at whatever awards show. I respect her not only for her work ethic and crazy talent, but for providing that representation for black people that has been lacking in mainstream media.

what does trick magazine mean to me?
Trick is going to be a place where I can grow into my creative self. Where I can experiment with different ideas I’ve had without feeling limited. It will be a safe-space for anyone who reads it, creates for it, or supports it.
