Muchacha Fanzine Issue #5, Spring 13'
“Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century”

Publisher: Daisy Salinas, Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com, Etsy, Tumblr, Wemakezines

“Brown Queen” was created to honor, celebrate and promote the artistic visions of Latinas. This 50 pg fanzine edition features beautiful poetry, heartfelt short stories, powerful essays, awe-aspiring artwork, unique photography and a breathtaking performance piece from 24 diverse self-identified Latinas, Chicanas, Hispanics and Afro-Latinas. This issue also spotlights a 5-page interview with artist Cristy C. Road about her most recent graphic novel Spit and Passion, zine subcultures in the 90's & today, spirituality and how she has learned to navigate her identity as a queer punk woman of color.

By providing a medium in where Latinas can share their unique voices, this issue, along with its Cinco de Mayo zine-release concert of the same name, has helped build a community of like-minded sisters of color. By sharing our stories and knowledge, “Brown Queen” challenges institutions, such as the mass media and education systems, which often exclude or misrepresent us. The continuation of our stories, knowledge and social-justice visions have the power to live on. “Brown Queen” is apart of the social justice continuum as it serves as time capsule to preserve our knowledge for future generations of women of color.

I'm starting a zine dedicated to women who are not mothers - by choice.  I would like for childfree women to be able to express how they think and feel and have a place to discuss how deeply the ideology of motherhood has infected our thinking about women and femininity.  Ultimately, any contributions, ideas, or thoughts will be used to create a new zine called "Inconceivable!" - it's a zine that will discuss separating motherhood from the female identity.  I welcome and encourage any contributions anybody has!!!  Thank you!

The theme for the upcoming issue #5 (Spring, 13’) of my fanzine Muchacha is “Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century”. I am calling out to Latina/Chicana/Hispanic identified women worldwide to contribute their voices though an array of mediums including poetry, essays, art, comics, etc. I want this issue to serve as a time capsule for future generations of Brown women. Let our voices be heard and let us pick up the pieces and continue the lessons of our foremothers. As Gloria Anzaldúa brilliantly said: “I will no longer be made to feel ashamed of existing. I will have my voice: Indian, Spanish, white. I will have my serpent’s tongue - my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence.”

Join me in overcoming the traditions of silence. To submit your contributions contact me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com with “Brown Queen” as the subject. Deadline for submissions is March 1st, 2013.

La tema de mi próxima edición #5 (Primavera, 13’) di me revistilla Muchacha es “Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century” (Reina Morena: Voces Latinas Del Siglo 21). Estoy llamando a las mujeres identificadas como Latina/Chicana/Hispana por todo el mundo para contribuir sus voces a través de una variedad de medios incluyendo poesía, ensayos, arte, cómicos, etc. Quiero que esta edición sirva como una cápsula del tiempo para las futuras generaciones de mujeres Latinas. Deje que nuestras voces se escuchen, y deje que nosotros recogemos los pedazos y seguir las lecciones de nuestras antepasadas. Como Gloria Anzaldúa brillantemente dijo: “Ya no mi hará sentir vergüenza por existir. Tendré mi voz: India, Español, blanca. Tendré mi lengua de serpiente - la voz de mi mujer, mi voz sexual, la voz de mi poeta. Voy a superar la tradición del silencio.”

Acompáñeme en el vencimiento de las tradiciones de silencio. Para enviar sus contribuciones póngase en contacto conmigo Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com con “Reina Morena” en el título. Fecha límite para submisions es Marzo 1st, 2013.

Muchacha Issue #4 Winter 12’

“The Funny Female Issue”

In the midst of the whole “feminism & comedy” debate this summer after the Daniel Tosh fiasco (where he told a girl in the audience that he would find it amusing if she were gang raped), people were beginning to make false claims that feminists were being “too serious” and couldn’t “take a joke”.

I thought about how the feminists in my life are the most hilarious people I have ever known. I reflected upon the funny female comedians, writers and humorous women on television that I have listened to, read and watched for years. I knew what the next theme of my fanzine needed to be…

This diverse 38 page issue contains a variety of submissions and pieces from hilarious self-identified feminists. Subject matter ranges from feminist performance pieces (“Size 2 Pants”-Guerrilla Girls on Tour!, “How to seduce a feminist”-Sarah Fox), Feminist Disney, comics ( “The Migrant Rights Activista on Her 21st B-day” “El Senor Bobo..”) the five stages of death concerning feminism within pop, men’s menstruation, satirical feminist songs, the debate between comedy and feminism itself, feminist jokes, Female Comics of Color, Samantha Bee on Abortion, “The Wisdom of Fran Lebowitz”, Daria Morgendorffer, fictional heroines and more! This issue is dedicated to every feminist who has ever been labeled “too angry” “too serious” or “too uptight”.

To purchase a copy visit my etsy shop or to trade message me or contact me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com!

Cherry Bomb is having it’s first ever sale (and it’s a good one!)

Everything Cherry Bomb is buy one, get one free (only at the storenvy store - DO NOT GO TO THE ETSY STORE!) in order to thank all of you for following the zine and to give some of you a chance to purchase the zine who may otherwise not able to afford it. The sale goes on until the end of Sunday night and buttons are limited in stock so act fast because those won’t be replaced for a while! I’ve also added my perzine into the stock for the sale only in case any of you were interested in taking a look at that.

Zines and buttons make great gifts for the feminist in your life (or the person who maybe needs a feminist awakening) - and they’re also a great way to treat yourself! 

Oh, and happy Thanksgiving if you live in America - I celebrated my Thanksgiving last month, but I’ll just go on record and say that I’m thankful for all the women who’ve fought so that we can be where we are today :)

<3 Julie
