my new perzine, reimagining queer community, is finished!

reimagining queer community is a personal investigation into my evolving relationship to queerness, as well as some of the ways in which i navigate queer spaces around me. some of the topics in this zine include: alienation and estrangement from the queer community, what it means to feel connected, the myth of a cohesive queer community, being a spectator versus being a participant, (personal and shared) queer histories, and potential strategies to build new alliances.  

this was my first attempt at making a twenty four hour zine (it wound up taking three days due to work/life interruptions, but who’s counting?) it is 20 pages, 1/4 sized and text heavy. i am asking for $1 or a trade. if you are interested, please email uniunverse@gmail.com.

'Shape & Situate: Posters of Inspirational European Women' is a zine of posters made by artists and DIY creative folk within Europe, each poster highlighting the (often hidden) history and lives of radical inspirational women and collectives from Europe, as a way of connecting us with the past, the present, and to help us to make sure that there will be a future which contains such creative and pioneering female action and activity. The zine aims to activate feminist cultural memory, to inspire in the present and to visually bring women’s social and political history to life.

Posters by: Erica Smith, Rachael House, Melanie Maddison, Michelle Mendonca, Anna Knowles, Verity Hall, Kathryn Taylor, Nina Nijsten, Peter Willis, Emily Aoibheann, Ed Webb-Ingall, Cara Corden, Patrick Staff, R Clout, Kathleen Teadrinker, Marylou Anderson, Flo Brooks, Charlotte Cooper, Cendrine Rovini, Gladys Badhands, James Clayton, and John Davison.

28 pages (23 posters)
A5 size zine.
Black and white illustrations throughout.

Printed on recycled 100gsm paper. Covers printed on 200gsm paper.


[If you'd like to stock or carry the zine on your distro/in your shop drop me a line!]

I'm pulling together a collective of creative work by women around the world into a series of zines called Dainty As Fuck. I am asking you all very politely to submit creative material of any kind, be it poetry, short story (fiction or non-fiction), photography, drawings, or whatever else tickles your fancy. The deadline for all material will be the 1st of December 2011, so you have plenty of time to get your stuff to me. The aim is to have the first of the zines published by the 1st of January 2012, and will be available at Sticky in Melbourne CBD. If you do not live in the Melbourne area or wish to have an electronic copy sent to you, don't hestitate to email me.

Please email your submissions and/or any questions to fkyeahactivism@yahoo.com by the 1st of December 2011. I would greatly appreciate your input :)

**Make sure you type "zine" or "dainty as fuck" or something along those lines in the subject line of your email or it will be deleted.**

Please invite your FEMALE friends. Submissions can be of any genre, it's completely up to you (checkout the Facebook page

Ideological Hypocrisy is a socio-political zine, the first issue of which covers anti-choice activists who choose to have abortions. The zine contains many accounts from abortion doctors who have preformed abortions for pro-life activists, as well as accounts of violence perpetuated by the pro-life movement.

 

email me for trades

Here. In My Head. #8, a feminist perzine from the UK, is now available to buy or trade!

This issue was written for the zine anthology being published by Planned Parenthood of Northern New England. Inside, I write about blood, sex, abortion, religion, choice, shame, and growth. Black and white, with a hand-coloured front cover.

Want to buy a copy from me? Paypal £1.00 if in the UK and £2.00 if international, to blatant_blitheAThotmail.co.uk, and I’ll send the zine out to you the next day. You can read more about my zines on my zinewiki page - http://zinewiki.com/Catherine_Elms.
