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.

I work on Hoax with Sari M (who wrote below). I would also really love trading zines with some people here. If you are worried about trading with sari and I seperately (because you'd be getting two of hoax) i'd be willing to send a few $$$ yr way...or maybe we can just become penpals? anyway, email hoaxzine@gmail.com!

Hey, going to be putting together a radical queer zine - about being a queer punk, being against assimilation, and gay shame. If you want to know more/write something/draw something - feel free to email at kale.and.glitter (at) gmail (dot) com. Thanks! :)

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!

It features work by Benjamin Solah, Sam Stoker, Ben Pearmain, Alex Ettling and Frankie Cole, who've tackled topics from failed dates to fishing, vegan extremes to the undead.

I hope you are well and finding satisfaction and joy in your lives and in your creativity! Thanks to everyone who read the first issue of my zine, The Alchemical Postmodern Theorist 1.1: the buying of queer culture. Making the zine was a very personal experience for me, and took about 4 years! The accumulation of four years of anti-assimilationist queer passion ended up being a bit messy and some readers found it inaccessible. This time around, I want to create a really meaty, accessible and radical zine, and I am asking for submissions from you, radical and queer zinesters and writers:

APMT 1.2: "this is what we call family" explores the family in all of its brilliant permutations. Is family defined by one man, and one women, and kids? By two married people of any gender? I am seeking to move beyond the gay marriage debate, and into the territory of chosen, post-nuclear, extended and queer families that break boundaries and practice radical new forms of support and encouragement. At the root of the revolution are groups of people who depend on each other, who are imagining and re-imagining 'family' all the time. Share your experiences with family - contribute your story, artwork, poem or article!
Deadline for submission is December 30, 2009. --

I am a straight person who is very active in supporting and advocating for GLBT people. I am a former church pastor who is disillusioned by church and fascinated by spirituality.

I love writing and have been blogging for 4 years. I am keen to learn all I can about zines but would also like to connect with and write for the GLBT zine community.

My blog is at http://lchatwin.blogspot.com

Please message me. I love networking and learning from others.
