Razorcake/Gorsky Press, Inc. (RC/GP) is a 501(c)(3) non-profit multidisciplinary arts organization. Its core mission is publishingRazorcake, a magazine dedicated to DIY punk, independent culture, and amplifying unheard voices.
RC/GP provides consistent coverage of do-it-yourself punk culture that you won’t find anywhere else. We believe in positive, progressive, community-supportive DIY punk. We do our part
DIY punk culture is often misrepresented, misunderstood, and the target of corporate exploitation. Razorcake supports a legitimate community of punk music and culture as the only bona fide 501(c)(3) non-profit music magazine in the US.
Our bi-monthly fanzine is a one-of-a-kind resource for the DIY punk community. Over the years, RC/GP has developed this resource to help document every facet of this culture. The RC/GP umbrella also includes book publishing, record pressing, live shows and readings, and a web presence that maintains weekly podcasts, webcomics, and videos.
Our open participation policy means anyone can become a contributor. Currently, RC/GP offers a forum for over 150 long-term, independent volunteer writers, photographers, illustrators, and musicians from around the world. We take pride in our scenes and represent them nationally and internationally. We also distribute the magazine to over twenty countries.
DIY punk is an exciting, evolving culture that can thrive outside of corporate interests. Our goal is to continue operating a modern framework where this community of independent, DIY punk can continue.

We feel when we work together, life is a little more bearable. On one side is a terrifying culture of manipulation, and on the other side are all of us.
If you don’t see or hear what you’d like covered, lend us a helping hand. If you’re knowledgeable about DIY punk, are open to the editing of your work, can meet deadlines, and follow instructions, we’ll consider your contribution. All creative content is done on a volunteer basis. Razorcake does not tolerate racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic, or ableist bullshit—and we’ve held these ethics since our start in 2001. DIY punk can’t be fully captured, understood, or expressed by white men. Diversity makes us a better punk organization. We’re encouraging people who are marginalized—by ethnicity, gender, sexuality, class, and personal experience—to submit material to Razorcake. Let’s work with each other.
