////// Call for queer zine(ster)s ////// 2nd mini queer zinefest berlin ////// please spread the word //////

Hey lovelies!
on April, 18th 2015, the second edition of the Mini Queer Zinefest Berlin will take place at f.a.q. and you are warmheartedly invited to come by and to participate!
The mini queer zinefest evolved very quickly from wanting to organize a release-event for our zines "Ethical Sloth" and "15 3/4 stories" into an open invitation to other queer zinesters to join us in doing so. In September 2014 we celebrated a wonderful first edition of the Mini Queer Zinefest and now we want to continue creating a space for queer zines and people who love queer zines. And you are happily invited to join us!
You want to volunteer? Or have a queer zine hidden in your closet, that is desperately waiting to come out? You want to table with your zines? Or maybe you want to give a workshop or give a lecture about something zine-related? Being a part of a round table sounds like a dream to you? We are still looking for queer zinesters who want to join this edition of the Mini Queer Zinefest Berlin. Cake and volunteers for barshifts will also be highly appreciated!
We are also still looking for a workshop or something similar up to 2 or 3 hours.
Please register if you want to set up a table.
There will also be the possibility to scan in your zine(s) for the Queer Zine Archive Project - check that out!
All of this and more: drop us a line: queerzinefestberlin@gmail.com
Yours, sincerely!
Dana, Yori, Katrin & Maria

Everywhere All The Time #2: Bright Sunny Days, Dark Sacred Nights is the second issue of my travel media zine featuring stories from a year spent traveling and living in Ecuador. From hiking in the northern highlands to a shack on the Pacific coast, the zine spans terrain, time and mood through text and black and white photos. The writing is influenced by my identities – queer, mestiza, POC, feminist, writer, weirdo – and is cut by quotes from Junot Díaz, Gloria Anzaldúa and James Baldwin. 36 pages, typewritten/handwritten and some computer writing, black and white with color cover. Order (on Etsy) here!
