I am, overall, new to wemakezines and essentially new to the Zine community. I've been trying to make a zine for a couple years and always chickened out until now. I'm almost getting through my first one with intentions on creating a Queer Zine series as well. Though, that being put aside, I am looking for your help.

I am a director in a resource centre for my university on queer issues. As a part of my position, I have to give a demonstration on the second week of school. Which has just now sprung up on me. I was told I may do my presentation on what ever topic I wish to do. I have chosen Alternative Press and Queerpunk (AKA, Queer zines!)

If you know of any resources, I would be so happy if you will care to indulge me. Though, another thing, and this may be quite a bit to ask, I dunno:

If you would be so kind as to send me an excerpt from any zine you have created revolving around queer issues, rights, movements, experiences, etc. for me to give a verbal reading, I would be MORE than happy! If you do this? I will more than happily buy your zine as well (Not to mention I will be pushing to buy zines as resources for the centre, so chances are I will be getting two copies). I'll even be willing to trade something for it.

If you're willing to help me out, I will try to pay you back in someway and love you forever. You can message me on this if you're interested, or to this email:

I just finished my latest zine! Get A Grip is a mental health perzine on travelling Aotearoa/New Zealand as a queer feminist with depression and anxiety. I write about topics raging from consensual sex, comparing radical communities, surviving abuse, unemployment, anti-violence, social awkwardness, and cunt-like volcanoes. I write pretty raw so some of the topics may be triggering.
If you want a copy for yourself or for your distro just drop me a line and I'll sort a way of getting it you/let's exchange! I'm also planning on being organised enough to have the zine on pdf if digital is your thing.
