Hi, felt this zine fitted here. Recently I made a zine on what's it like living with a profound hearing loss/deafness.





Understanding a Deaf world.

Feel free to comment/criticize, share and print. 

Thanks

neither doll houses nor tree houses: on living outside of the gender binary

finished in under 24 hours for the chicago zine fest, this zine focuses on the ups and downs of finding myself outside of the gender binary and attempts to both de- and re-construct various questions about my own gender as well as gender in general. three separate sections discuss feeling pushed out of femininity, how masculinity is viewed as inherent and femininity is viewed as a fictitious performance, how striving for the “perfect balance” of two genders is not plausible nor an adequate solution, acceptance or tolerance (or neither) that i feel in specific spaces, how my radical friends misgender and disrespect me more often than my non-radical ones, the (non-) accessibility of queer jargon and language, how coming out has garnered me the most intense gender assumptions yet, dealing with friends who don’t “get it”, my desire to validate my own identity without stepping on the identity of others, and checking white privilege. 32 pgs, ½ size, b&w. $2-3 or trade. message me or e-mail youvegotafriendinpa (at) gmail (dot) com for more info!

you’ve got a friend in pennsylvania #6

my issues with mental health have always been immensely difficult for me to assess, describe, and talk about. an intensely private person, i have kept most of my struggles to myself. in this zine, i attempt to investigate the traces of anxiety, depression, suicide, and alcoholism in my family’s history as well as my own difficulties with these issues. almost split into two zines due to volume, this issue is a hefty assortment of stories, thoughts, and emotions.

eight sections discuss: the secrecy surrounding my family’s history of suicides, a recent suicide in my family, my issues with anxiety and pushing emotions aside, my reoccuring suicidal thoughts and how my identities intersect with them, talking with a fellow queer/trans* friend struggling with suicide, assessing my tumultuous relationship with alcohol and deciding to become consciously sober, what i can do to manage and deal with things, and what i plan to do in the future. there is a trigger warning for the zine relating to depression, anxiety, suicide, self-harm, alcoholism, sexual assault, and abuse - please take care of yerself before you read this - it is intense.

this zine is extremely text heavy, black & white, 46 pages, and 1/2 size. for purchasing or trading, please e-mail youvegotafriendinpaATgmailDOTcom or get in touch with me on here!

Hey Y'all! I'm new to the site, and couldn't be happier to be a member. Check out my latest blog post about the correlation between race and property value in the Bay Area.

I look forward to collaborating with anyone.

I'll be having a social justice + art fundraiser for my documentary about my trip to China and how there are lots of resources for students (TESOL, Zines, Entrepreneurship, Lifestyle Design..etc.) And I was looking to see if anyone would want to donate some zines (or even sell for my fundraiser!) with similar topics for high school students.

Did you ever hear about the Voluntary Human Extinction MovemenT (aka VHEMT)? It's an NGO concerned with the all the problems derived from our present overpopulation of the planet. Sadwrn boasts an interview with its founder, Les U. Knight. Check it out here (online) or here (light PDF download)!
