queer punk zinsters

I know there is a queer zinester group, but I think queer punk zines & queer punk zinsters need their own group

You draw lines and you draw lines, and then you shape boxes and boxes and try to decide which ones fit you best. But have you ever stepped outside the line, and think, coming this far, how much farther would you dare? That’s why, people who are openly queer call this term coming out of the closet. Because we close ourselves, and cage our hearts, and throw away the key. This issue, we dare you to come out with us. Cross those lines on tightropes, shrug off gender boundaries, do away with stereotypes. We are who we are, and if we know this then labels don’t matter at all. Because we’ve got to honour the differences, or what’s the same wouldn’t count.


And who could be more queer, or more punk than us? We ask you once again to trust us with your submissions. We ask you to explore the boundaries of gender, race, stereotypes, rebellion, and anarchy. We ask you to give us your poetry, your art, and your music, in its most rebellious, most queer punk. Mainstream or underground, gay or lesbian, hardcore or soft porn, and hey, even alpha males are welcome. We want you to colour our worlds queer(punk). Now there are no rules, no boundaries, we’ll make our love on wastelands and through the barricades (Spandau Ballet).


We are interested in works that question, that reveal, that critique, that ask, that makes us curious. We want to see colors, and explosions, and madness, we want works that ignite our passion for equality and justice. We want works that ask for human dignity for all. We want works that make us want to shrug off oppression, and put it aside to forever after never be worn by anyone again. Because Who in the New World does not have a horror of the past, whether his ancestor was torturer or victim? Who in the depth of conscience, is not silently screaming for pardon or revenge? The pulse of New World history is the racing pulse beat of fear, the tiring cycles of stupidity and greed (Derek Walcott). And it need be that no longer. In the dawn of the New Age, we ask you to join us to fight for human dignity for all. Gay or lesbian, man or woman, colored or white; all different, all beautiful. And in this great future, you can forget your past, so dry your tears, I say (Bob Marley).

you’ve got a friend in pennsylvania #5 is now finished!

having worked at in a warehouse for the past month and a half, i’ve spent a lot of time within a “boys’ club” environment. daily struggles with hearing racist and sexist bullshit and making attempts to challenge the mindsets of those around me have left me defensive and drained. this zine, done in 24-ish hours for the dc zine fest, is about resisting militant masculinity on the job, learning how to more effectively call out shitty behavior, and how i have created a safer space for myself (and hopefully some others) at work. b&w, 1/4 size, 20 pages. includes original photography by yours truly! $1 or trade. if interested, please send me a message or e-mail youvegotafriendinpa(at)gmail(dot)com

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.

Hello hello! I am currently working on a zine: Saling-pusa and aside from being a perzine, it focuses mostly on self-discovery and self-definition. And for this first issue, i am looking for articles/pieces that talks about how you just knew you're gay. It can be as obvious as starting to be attracted to someone of the same sex or something like playing house with another girl, being forced to play the guy role and realizing you liked it... it can be anything really. i just really want to see/hear about how people finally confirmed and admitted to themselves they're gay/queer or whatever you preffer to call it. I am really interested to read those turning point stories. :) you can email me at i_reply@live.com for more info or to submit your submission. thanks!
