Made on the traditional territory of many nations including the Mississaugas of the Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and what is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis people. Tkaronto (a.k.a. Toronto) is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the Credit.
ULTRA is a Tkaronto scene zine that began during the COVID-19 pandemic as a way to come together safely.
We hope to revive the kinds of exchanges we once had in spaces we can't access right now so our community will continue to grow.
ULTRA loves love. We celebrate difference and not hate.

At this time, ULTRA is a labour of love, which means we can't promise payment. As we get going, we hope to change that. For now, we can't express how grateful we are to have cats like ♡ you ♡ .
