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.

Everywhere All The Time is a radical travel zine which by its very nature explores dissent from the mainstream travel writing industry with its Ten Best lists, boring hotel reviews and bratty first-world escapist adventures. Written by a broke-ass queer traveler of color, the stories within the zine are unimpressive, awkward and short (like me.)  They are completely typewritten and juxtaposed against full color photos illuminating everything from the mundane to the magical and taken anywhere from Beijing to New Orleans. Also featured are dozens of tiny sketches sprinkled throughout the pages. Pre-order the first issue for $5 and receive free shipping, remember, I’m mailing this shit from Ecuador!

I am seeking SUBMISSIONS for a DIY Trans Health zine! This zine will focus on FTM spectrum / gender variant / genderqueer CAFAB* healthcare. The goal is as few gender dysphoria triggers as possible as we empower each other to take control of our healthcare. Here is what is wanted:

  • Tested tips for treating common complaints such as yeast infections, BV, and UTI
  • Discussion of barriers and opportunities in healthcare access for FTM spectrum / gender variant CAFAB people
  • Information about herbs and supplements to support well-being
  • Discussion of natural and home treatment for depression, anxiety, sleeping problems
  • Treating problems specifically related to transition or things done to create gender alignment, such as treating problems from binding
  • Submissions should use terminology appropriate to the community
  • Where possible, terminology about bodies should reflect what trans men and gender variant people use to refer to their own bodies. Submissions may be edited to standardize terminology.
  • Send submissions to alchemistscloset@gmail.com. Thank you!

*cafab = baby is assigned to the female sex at birth, whether or not this is true, correct or the right choice for the individual

after over a year in the making, this zine is finally finished!

Thou Shalt Not Talk About The White Boys’ Club: Challenging The Unwritten Rules of Punk [click for excerpts]

Touted as being a home for society’s rejects, outcasts, and ‘alternative’ political stances, punk unfortunately often ends up reinforcing oppressive mindsets and ideals by setting up numerous unwritten rules for dress, behavior, personal choices, identifications, and so much more. This zine, written by sari of Hoax and You’ve Got a Friend in Pennsylvania, aims to direct conscious attention to the nuances of being a marginalized person, namely a Gender and Sexuality Minority (GSM), in the punk community. Includes questions intended to incite dialogue among readers and their friends as well as a short list of recommended resources concerning marginalized experiences in punk. B&W, 34 pages, & text heavy. US$2.50. [etsy / well-hidden cash or trades]

Different Shades of normal is now in it's first issue.

It's 50 pages long and handwritten.

Topics include: mental illness (schizophrenia), self-destruction, etc. This zine's central focus is Love-whether Loving another or relearning to Love one self again.

Email me at sandra_reiki_@hotmail.com . Love to trade :)


**(watching a woman self-destruct while doing nothing is not a revolutionary act)**

I just finished putting together a zine that was two years(!) in the making:

Nashville Transit is about riding public transit during the early months of my transition. I basically journal-ed my experiences with street harassment and then typed them out, with very little edits/commentary. I also talk about the importance of public space and who has power in public spaces. 1/2 size zine with cardstock cover, cut and paste style, mostly text. Please get at me if you'd like to trade or wholesale: nervous.nelly.records@gmail.com or http://nervousnelly.storenvy.com/products/638932-nashville-transit-...
