Profile Information

Alyss? Who the fuck is Alyss?

I'm a short redheaded punky 23-yr-old genderqueer butch-of-center leather dyke woman engaged to a queer cis dude. Either ze/hir or she/her. 


Occupation: Radical social worker in training. Currently working at a nonprofit that provides family violence intervention services, including shelter and counseling.  

Non-Zine Hobbies: Quad roller skater. Drummer. Vinyl record collector. 


Co-owner of Punk Tree Records & Distro!  

A funky new operation comin' at you from the land of Nardcore, Punk Tree Records & Distro is a labor of love dedicated to distributing and appreciating zines, comix, crafts and DIY music. We're seeking submissions and open to just about any topic with a radical bent. We record and produce local bands out of a small home studio for free or barter. Food, beer and cigarettes are popular trade options; zines and handmade things are also welcome. Check us out at facebook.com/punktreedistro until we get a website and P.O. box set up. To submit your stuff, email punktreedistro@gmail.com with a description and price, we buy upfront. 


Zine Projects: 

stitches #1: a dialogue with queer/dyke culture

Cis white able-bodied lesbians do not own the word dyke, nor do they own queer women's culture. Let's re-envision what a radical, inclusive queer dyke culture could look like and feel like. Open to submissions from people of all gender identities. We will strive to center the voices of those who have been particularly oppressed by current lesbian and queer women's culture, including women of color, trans women, non-binary people and people with disabilities.
