Hi fellow WOC zinesters! Just dropping in to spread the word about a new Southeast Asian based zine called the Tiger Balm Project! I have a piece of work in the first issue, SIGHT, along with 25+ other SE Asians. Please show support by purchasing a copy (physical or PDF form) or just by spreading the word! https://www.tigerbalmproject.com/

Have a great day! :)

Hi! Just wanna say I have a new zine!

PICKING BONES #1 is a mix of prose and comics about about visiting my family in New York and the Philippines, reuniting with old friends, managing grief, homesickness and places and past selves. Also, instructions on how to play pusoy dos (Filipinx poker!).

20 pages, half-sized with yellow paper covers! 
Get it here: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/485346533/picking-bones-1 OR I'm also down to trade! Drop me a line at nerdturd @ gmail.com <3

Hi everyone! Mangosteen #4 is out. There's not really much of a theme to it, just my current thoughts and whatnot. It's for sale in my shop: monycraftstudio.storenvy.com

Hey all, I have a new Vapour Trails 'zine out. It's called Ethnicity & Existentialism (it's not philosophical, but it is about race and representation, as well as my personal experiences as a mixed person of colour). It's a little all over the place, but it took a long time to put together. Each page's background is painted with watercolours and it is 21 half-sized pages.
$5 to help me break even from those god awful colour photocopy costs (after I make it back I'll consider trades, but not quite yet!)

Muchacha fanzine Issue #9 “Body Positivity” CALLS OUT TO POC, trans* folks, disabled badasses, women, curvy/voluptuous/fat/thick Goddesses/Gods/Genderqueers, and lesbians/gays/bis/queers to submit poetry, prose, art, comics, photography, quotes, scripts, musical lyrics, ramblings, etc. concerning body positivity. Submissions are very open to interpretation and can include but are not limited to discussions/art related to how race, gender, size, sexuality, able-bodiedness, age, and class intersect with ideas related to body positivity and/or embodiment.

Contact me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com with submissions. The deadline is Tuesday, July 1st and all contributors will receive a free copy when this edition is released in mid-July!

Note: *This edition of Muchacha aims to challenge the mainstream white/heterosexual/able-bodied/cisgender-centric feminist movement of “body positivity” that has and continues to exclude/ignore the fact that many marginalized people have distinct experiences with their bodies that are often underrepresented in our society. Another goal of this summer issue is to reclaim the term “body positivity” in a way that is inclusive of diverse voices and encourages reflectivity on how bodies can also be cause for pain, conflict, and/or healing.

Hey friends! I recently posted a blog post about my zine and my connection to the zine community. I also put a bunch of my zines up on my etsy shop. I'd love it if you could check them out! <3
