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.

////// 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

Have a zine in the works and just aren't getting it done? Have an idea that is overdue to be born? Tom Magee from Mailaise Crew and WJ from QueerContent are facilitating a 24hr zine challenge to get stuff done (we're also unemployed, broke, and bored).

When: Monday, 9th February @ 9am
Where: Tom's House

Be sure to bring your own tools/stapler/paper. There will be food - maybe pizza - but it would be rad if everyone brought something to share. WJ is baking, so the real challenge is to out-do him.

All zine makers of all varieties welcome! You don't even have to stick around or make a zine: you could make a comic if you like, squeeze a page into (or check out) someone else's progress. We just get together and harness the power of zine making while meeting some awesome creators.

RSVP ON THE FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE: https://www.facebook.com/events/1553332511575689/?ref=3&ref_new...

I'm nonbinary and this will probably sneak into my zines. I'll be doing one about being nonbinary and transitioning with the NHS (UK) at some point, but for now it's just my perzine - it's got some stuff about some activism I've been doing lately in it.

My first and currently only perzine

Hey All,

Tomorrow (November 3rd) is QZAP's 11th birthday!  We're celebrating with a fundraiser queer zine read-a-thon called #MoFemmeBer!

You can follow the links to sign up, follow us on Tumbler, Twitter, FB, etc.  We're really super excited, and think it'll be a fun project.

It's....It's....It's a zine! A zine is born! 'Different Shades of Normal #3 presents:

The rewind and fast-forward edition.' This perzine spans 21 years of writing. It includes failed relationships, depression, self-destruction, grief, self-care, etc. This perzine is typed and is 38 pages. Hurry and get it soon before it goes beddy-bye!

Call for Submissions: Compilation zine seeking content from non-cisgender folks with experiences of sexual violence

In response to the binarism that pervades the majority of resources regarding recovery from sexual violence, I'm hoping to develop a compzine exploring non-cis (I use this term in an attempt to be as inclusive as possible – there exists an incredible diversity of gendered identities and experiences, and in attempting to delineate all possible permutations, I'm afraid I may inadvertently neglect someone) experiences of sexual trauma. I'm particularly interested in the ways in which non-cis identity may intersect with experiences of embodiment after sexual violence.

My hope for this project is to create a document that may serve as a point of reference for those navigating their own experiences of embodiment after sexual trauma.

Submissions can include poetry, non-fiction writing, visual art, and any other means by which you may want to express your experience. If you have a question, comment, suggestion, or submission, please e-mail tim (dot) c (dot) mcconnell (at) gmail (dot) com.

Submission deadline: August 31, 2014

Comment by Hot Trash Zine on July 23, 2014 at 12:31pm

Hot Trash Zine is a Bay Area feminist art and music zine. We provide an OPEN space for anyone and everyone to be an artist, a writer, a poet, and an activist. We take open submissions, so send your art and writings to hottrashzine@mail.com. No entries will be turned away for extreme vulgarity or obscenity, so be as nasty, as dirty, and as trashy as you want. 
This is free speech, baby.

Seeking Real Queer Sex stories

I am launching a new zine project in which I will illustrate true stories of queer sex. (I am using the broad definition of queer as non-hetronomative and/or non-binary)

My ethos of inclusivity, sensitivity and honesty will be applied to Real Queer Sex, I want to represent the range of forms queer sex can take and the range of people who engage in it of every age, gender identity, sexuality, shape, size, race…

No story is too short or long to share, or too “vanilla” or kinky…

Thank you!

If you would like to submit a story please go to www.realqueersex.tumblr.com

If you would like to find out more about me www.theoysterknife.co.uk

By submitting your story you agree that it might be quoted, illustrated and published in my book titled “Real Queer Sex”.

Please contact Wagonburners via our homepage, HOWEVER, this is not a project that will focus on Native traditions, spirituality or the like. Any serious submission heeding these guidelines will be considered.
