Ms. Mayhem is a female-owned, Denver-based online publication dedicated to authentic, in-depth news and uncovering the stories of underrepresented voices. We work to spark conversation about inclusivity and promote people who make waves within their communities.
We cover major stories from perspectives that are rarely seen from more mainstream outlets. Our team looks forward to reporting on femme and non-binary identifying people in all walks of life, from sex work to the military; from tattooing and skateboarding to the STEM industry. We’ll be reporting right from the middle of the intersection of gender, sexuality, class, ability and race.
