Hello! 

We have two open calls at the moment, one for art and one for stories:

http://transnational-queer-underground.net/call-for-your-queer-art/

http://transnational-queer-underground.net/our_story/

MOST OF HISTORY HAS BEEN WRITTEN BY WHITE MEN - WHAT THEY WROTE AND THE TRUTHS THEY CREATED ARE WHAT WE SEE REFLECTED IN MAINSTREAM GLOBAL POLITICS, MEDIA AND DISCOURSES TODAY. THE HISTORY OF WOMEN, OF NON-WHITES, NON-STRAIGHT, AND GENDER NON-CONFORMING PEOPLE HAS BEEN WIDELY NEGLECTED IN THE PAST AND IS STILL UNDERREPRESENTED IN THE PRESENT.
WE CAN CHANGE THAT! 

ART CAN BE RADICAL.

ART CAN BE CONTROVERSIAL.

ART CAN BE BEAUTIFUL.

Just write to art@transnatioanl-queer-underground.net if you have any questions!

Just 1 more week to share your envy! 

Do you have a poem about jealousy or greed, a painting that’s green through and through, a photo that shows how you keep up with the Jones’, an illustration of the sirens of the sea?

We’d love to see your envy in any shape or form. Just email it to felanzine@outlook.com by Oct. 28!

THE FUCKING ISSUE contd

Feel free to submit original artwork, comics, graphics, and other printable media.  Simultaneous submissions are fine, and author’s always maintain the rights to their work.  Previously published work is also acceptable.  
Through our travels, we’ve been in a lot of different circles with a lot of different women (womyn, trans persons, non binary, two spirited, etc) from all over the world, and there’s one topic that seems to permeate all borders: SEX.  Particularly, how many negative or disappointing encounters we’ve had.  The more we talk, the more similarities we find, and the more curious we become about the larger implications and the possible remedies for these problems.  Throughout the world, there are varying degrees of Sex Ed being taught, with one strain of education standing out from the rest as the most toxic and least satisfying.  We’ve all been in this scenario.  Someone we’ve met and become enthralled, entranced, intrigued, enchanted with, and whatever the mysterious forces of the universe are have thrown us together into a passionate scene of clothing being pulled off, necks kissed, libidos raging…  and then the disappointing moment where we realize the object of our desire has received their sexual education from pornography.  We fake orgasm so they stop their jackhammering replica of sluttyschoolgirls.com and leave unsatisfied and disappointed, afraid to damage the delicate ego of our lover.  But what is this doing?  Our silence allows this behavior to continue, unattested; it allows the violent, insensitive, rape prone male centric model of dominator culture to thrive.  This is not to say there are no men, male identifying humans, masculine end of the spectrum folk, who abhor mainstream porn modeled sex as much as we do.  Of course there are.  But there still exists the simple fact that women’s voices are often absent from the conversation the world is having through visual representations of sex, and that is a fucking issue.  So, we’ve decided to compile a zine, or a series of zines, about what we actually want, and there is no one story or narrative that encompasses all of our desires.  We are all different, and we know what we want.  We can speak for ourselves.  Even for the people out there who are unfamiliar with the idea of the male gaze, of systemic oppression, of how we female bodied or feminine inclined or anything other than cis male humans are constantly fighting for space to exist in, language to speak through, and safety within the confines of our own bodies, this zine could be tremendously helpful.  What this zine seeks to do is educate the masses, tell stories that are not spoken through the predominant voice of the white male cannon, to create dissonance against the avalanches of cybernetic moans and choking of barely legal blondes.  Some women like double penetration and being choked, but to have this story be the only story of what sex looks like, and what is expected, is extremely damaging and dangerous.  So, here are the stories of real humans from around the world, narrating the best sex they can fathom.  Eat your hearts out.

THE FUCKING ISSUE


Everyone and anyone who is not cis male identifying:  Imagine the best sex you’ve ever had, or the best sex you’ve never had.  We want a narrative, an instructional, a tutorial, or a story explaining in as much detail as you’ve got, what you want and how you want it.  
Send submissions to blackbootspress@gmail.com with the subject line THE SEX WE REALLY WANT.  Your submissions can be anonymous if you’re more comfortable that way, but feel free to include your name, age, or any other identifying information that might be interesting for our audience to know.  We are creating a print zine, and when the final product is ready, you can order copies at cost of shipping (we’re currently based out of Southeast Asia).

We've extended our submission deadline!

French Fry Zine is accepting submissions that adhere to our theme, Family, until November 18th.

So we want your:
-old emo poetry
-fiction about playing Yu Gi Oh with cousins
-manifestos/nonfiction on why you don’t want kids
-family vacation inspired art

You get the gist. Submissions that are relatable/approachable to a general 90's kid audience tend to get bonus points. Submit as many works as you want.

Comment by Jade Mars on October 5, 2016 at 3:35pm

Submissions are now being taken for the first queer astrology compzine!
 
Suggested topics include:
- why do so many queers love astrology?
- queer accounts of combining astrology with tarot, witchcraft and other occult pursuits
- queering the horoscope reading / reading queer horoscopes
- queering the planets, signs, and elements
- are there significators for queerness in the horoscope? what might they be?
- how can astrology be combined with commitments to radical politics and social justice?
- how can we work creatively and non-oppressively with an astrological system which is often used to reinforce sexism, heteronormativity, essentialism of all kinds, and the gender binary?
- how can white people respectfully engage with astrology without succumbing to the culturally appropriative trends of contemporary Western 'new age' spiritual practices?
- can astrology's deterministic or predictive qualities be reconciled with queer theory's anti-identitarian and anti-futurity tendencies?
 
Please send all submissions to queerarcana@gmail.com by 31st October 2016.
