Queer Zines and Queer Zinesters

Are you a queer zinester (broadly defined, of course)? Do you write about your genderfucking, transitioning, same-and-other-gender lovin' experiences, or about queer and LBGTQ communities and cultures? If so, let's start talking about it.

Hi. my name is gg. im a queer trans woman from olympia wa who runs a biannual zine called "up the witchpunx" The entire staff (me, hannah and ezmy) are queer so we focus a lot on topics like transgender witchcraft, apocalypse, sexuality, religious oppression, and the witch as a rebel against church, god, and state.

This fall we are going to be focusing on radical hope. To us this means all the cathartic intense dangerous things that a person has to do to cleanse their soul and feel like a better world is possible. This becomes woven into the story of two trans women devoting themselves to Babalon, a goddess of love and war...as well as a queer AFAB person who covers themselves in handpoke tattoos and worships death.

We have a lot of space as each issue is roughly 40 pages long 8x11. We fund each one with kickstarter campaigns. We need a lot of submissions: any format is fine as long as its on a relevant topic. we accept photography, fashion, drawing, poetry, rants, articles, collages, etc. this is a really multimedia zine.

if your submission is relatively small (just text, for example) or if you need to send it securely, use this: upthewitchpunx@riseup.net

If it is a large file, send it here: gg.irkalla888@gmail.com

if you have any questions feel free to contact me on here or at the emails above.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS!
All in Your Head is a traditional cut-and-paste style zine with a focus on LGBTQIA neurodivergent and disabled activists, zinesters, artists, and authors. Our zine operates on the following *principles: 1.) social inequality and injustice exists [racism, classism, ableism, heterosexism, cissexism to name a few]; 2.) disability, neurodiversity can be understood as a viable form of human difference that intersects with/is shaped by systems of dominance; 3.) claims that there is a “normal” bodymind can have damaging and harmful effects (physically/emotionally/spiritually) and are partly shaped by current social/cultural values and white western colonial histories; 4.) neuroatypical people and people with disabilities must navigate cultural taboos, move among complex institutions and systems of care and negotiate conflicting ideas of “wellness/illness,“ “silence/disclosure,” “visibility/invisibility;” “dis/ability” and more 5.) most importantly, our stories matter. (*this list is by no means exhaustive).

For the Fall 2016 edition of All in Your Head, we invite you to share first person narratives, essays, rants, poems, doodles, drawings, photography, collages (and more!) that address the concept of “cure.” We are seeking pieces that explore the theme "cures” as it relates to disabled bodyminds and ways that queer neurodivergent, disabled folks encounter and resist cultural stigma and self-authorize our existence.

We are seeking topics that address the following themes (and others):

  • “Cure culture” (Eli Clare) as a homogenizing/coercive force
  • Critiques of health, well-being, and wholeness as it is informed by white supremacy, colonialism, imperialism, racism, colorism, ableism, classism, homo/bi/transphobia and other forms of oppression;
  • Ways in which “curing” queerness, disability, and neurodiversity manifests as state and institutional violence;
  • Interconnections among racism, white supremacy, ableism, and state/institutional violence particularly in light of police violence and state surveillance of activist groups such as Black Lives Matter;
  • Queering cures and cure culture; trans and queer sick/neurodivergent/disabled narratives and grappling with the concept of “cure;”
  • Radically performing illness/sickness and other forms of resistance to “cure” culture;
  • Activist projects related to queerness, disability, and neurodivergence.
  • Have an idea not listed here? Submit anyway!


Send your submissions to allinyourheadzine@gmail.com before September 1st, 2016. Please send your submissions via email. For written submissions, please use Microsoft word and submit your writing in .doc or .docx format. Please try to limit submissions to 1500 words. (We are flexible. Let us know if you need a little extra space.) For artwork, please attach high resolution .jpg images to your email. Please include a title for your artwork and any information you would like readers to know about your piece (medium, location, tools used etc). Contributors have the option of sharing a short bio or publishing their work anonymously.

Calling all zinesters who reject or transcend or defy the gender binary!

Hot Nonbinary is a UK-based zine currently seeking submissions. Writers will be paid. We've also got a Twitter and a Tumblr if you want to keep an eye on it.

Thank you for your attention!

In this new issue: 'From Anxiety To Zen', zen meditation as a tool against anxiety disorder (not); a review of Jett Rebel's 'Truck', his stunning latest album, and four, five more or less literary pieces on codependency.

Call for Submissions!!

FAT ASS is an intersectional queer/feminist zine that centers on the experiences of queer fat folks and celebrates the artistry, activism, and work of fat activists. For issue #1 of FAT ASS, we’re looking for submissions related to food and fat bodies.

We’re looking for submissions that address the following topics/themes (and more!):
-Fat bodies and food consumption practices;
-Queerly challenging fat-shaming and diet culture;
-The social context(s) of fat bodies eating, producing, buying food;
-Fat folks in food-production/consumption spaces;
-Racialization/gendering/sizing/disabling of food (i.e.: the connection between meat consumption of misogyny; demonization of foods that are deemed “unhealthy”);
-Fat perspectives on food for healing, self-care, spiritual practice, and/or holistic well-being; (NOTE: we do not condone the empty promises of diet culture so please do not send us diet regimens, “weight loss stories,” before/after pics or other fat-shaming bullshit!);
-Queer/feminist/fat community-building through sharing/producing food;
-Representations of fat bodies and food in the media;
-Fat trans and gender non-conforming perspectives on food and eating;
-Impact of fat and food stigma on queer folks’ livelihood;
-Have an idea that’s not listed above? Send it anyway!

Send your submissions to FATASSZINE@gmail.com before February 29th, 2016. For written submissions, please use Microsoft Word and submit your writing in .doc or .docx format.
