Muchacha Fanzine Issue #5, Spring 13'
“Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century”

Publisher: Daisy Salinas, Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com, Etsy, Tumblr, Wemakezines

“Brown Queen” was created to honor, celebrate and promote the artistic visions of Latinas. This 50 pg fanzine edition features beautiful poetry, heartfelt short stories, powerful essays, awe-aspiring artwork, unique photography and a breathtaking performance piece from 24 diverse self-identified Latinas, Chicanas, Hispanics and Afro-Latinas. This issue also spotlights a 5-page interview with artist Cristy C. Road about her most recent graphic novel Spit and Passion, zine subcultures in the 90's & today, spirituality and how she has learned to navigate her identity as a queer punk woman of color.

By providing a medium in where Latinas can share their unique voices, this issue, along with its Cinco de Mayo zine-release concert of the same name, has helped build a community of like-minded sisters of color. By sharing our stories and knowledge, “Brown Queen” challenges institutions, such as the mass media and education systems, which often exclude or misrepresent us. The continuation of our stories, knowledge and social-justice visions have the power to live on. “Brown Queen” is apart of the social justice continuum as it serves as time capsule to preserve our knowledge for future generations of women of color.

The theme for the upcoming issue #5 (Spring, 13’) of my fanzine Muchacha is “Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century”. I am calling out to Latina/Chicana/Hispanic identified women worldwide to contribute their voices though an array of mediums including poetry, essays, art, comics, etc. I want this issue to serve as a time capsule for future generations of Brown women. Let our voices be heard and let us pick up the pieces and continue the lessons of our foremothers. As Gloria Anzaldúa brilliantly said: “I will no longer be made to feel ashamed of existing. I will have my voice: Indian, Spanish, white. I will have my serpent’s tongue - my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence.”

Join me in overcoming the traditions of silence. To submit your contributions contact me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com with “Brown Queen” as the subject. Deadline for submissions is March 1st, 2013.

La tema de mi próxima edición #5 (Primavera, 13’) di me revistilla Muchacha es “Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century” (Reina Morena: Voces Latinas Del Siglo 21). Estoy llamando a las mujeres identificadas como Latina/Chicana/Hispana por todo el mundo para contribuir sus voces a través de una variedad de medios incluyendo poesía, ensayos, arte, cómicos, etc. Quiero que esta edición sirva como una cápsula del tiempo para las futuras generaciones de mujeres Latinas. Deje que nuestras voces se escuchen, y deje que nosotros recogemos los pedazos y seguir las lecciones de nuestras antepasadas. Como Gloria Anzaldúa brillantemente dijo: “Ya no mi hará sentir vergüenza por existir. Tendré mi voz: India, Español, blanca. Tendré mi lengua de serpiente - la voz de mi mujer, mi voz sexual, la voz de mi poeta. Voy a superar la tradición del silencio.”

Acompáñeme en el vencimiento de las tradiciones de silencio. Para enviar sus contribuciones póngase en contacto conmigo Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com con “Reina Morena” en el título. Fecha límite para submisions es Marzo 1st, 2013.

Hello all of you lovely ladies-


Just wanted to drop by and say that issue four of my zine, Impossibles, is done. It is all about what it is like being a black woman. There are essays in there on topics ranging from my skin and hair, to cultural expectations, there's even an essay in there about why I prefer "black" over "African - American". It is 40 pages, 1/2 size. I am up for trades, so just message me on here or email me at rochellefallout@gmail.com. Thanks!

Hey y'all! I don't know who else is in the Boston area but the PoC Zine Project is coming to Papercut Zine Library this month to do an event and then they're going on tour! It'll include zinesters like Osa from Shotgun Seamstress and Mimi Thi Nguyen from Evolution of a Race Riot! It's gonna be sweet. http://poczineproject.tumblr.com/

Submission Guidelines for issue #4 of my fanzine Muchacha

Theme: “Who Says Feminists Don’t Have A Sense Of Humor?”

The purpose of this issue is to combat the stereotype that feminists are always angry/unfunny/too serious/uptight. I’m looking for satirical/humorous thoughts, poetry, stories, essays, quotes, rants, analysis, art, collages, doodles, comics, or photography from a feminist perspective. Whether it’s half a page or 4 pages, e-mail me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com to submit your work. The deadline is September 1st. Help me in reclaiming the fact that “funny feminist” is not an oxymoron.

Funny Feminists Unite! 

Love & Revolution,

Daisy

"Feminist humor raises consciousness. And the reason it's funny is because it stands something on its head. Goodness knows you've got to have a sense of humor if you do feminism full-time, I tell you." - Eleanor Smeal
