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.

Submissions are now being taken for the first queer astrology compzine!
Suggested topics include:
- why do so many queers love astrology?
- queer accounts of combining astrology with tarot, witchcraft and other occult pursuits
- queering the horoscope reading / reading queer horoscopes
- queering the planets, signs, and elements
- are there significators for queerness in the horoscope? what might they be?
- how can astrology be combined with commitments to radical politics and social justice?
- how can we work creatively and non-oppressively with an astrological system which is often used to reinforce sexism, heteronormativity, essentialism of all kinds, and the gender binary?
- how can white people respectfully engage with astrology without succumbing to the culturally appropriative trends of contemporary Western 'new age' spiritual practices?
- can astrology's deterministic or predictive qualities be reconciled with queer theory's anti-identitarian and anti-futurity tendencies?
Please send all submissions to queerarcana@gmail.com by 31st October 2016.

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.

Anyone who submits, regardless of if they make it into the zine or not, will get a free copy -where as people who make it into the zine will get 3 free copies :3

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.

Hoax is a US annual queer feminist compilation zine that aims to create a space for us to share our own truths. Issue #12: Feminisms and Healing is now up for preorders! This 80-page zine features over two dozen amazing contributors & covers topics like PTSD, self-care, Body Focused Repetitive Disorder, grief, mental illness, self-harm, AA, racism, and asexuality.

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!
