Milo Who?!?!

Personal Info
Let's see... I am a nerdy zinester bread baker urban gardner punk rock poly bi switchy witchy outgoing home body... or something like that.

I've been making zines since about 1992. In HS I worked on one called Nikita's Boot with a friend. I think there were a total of 4 issues, none of which I have in my possession any more.

I really got started in the zine world in 1999. I did 10 issues of Mutate Zine from 1999-2006. I've been taking a break from that, and have been producing Gendercide since 2006. I've recently put out Gendercide #5 (skipping merrily over #4, which is still in process.) I've also done a number of one-off minizines including The Black Briefcase and Crush.

In 2003 my partner-in-crime and I co-founded QZAP, the Queer Zine Archive Project. We've been scanning and making available the vast history of queer zines dating from the 1970s-present. We're always accepting zine donations, and hope to soon have a zine library space to physically share these amazing documents. Currently there are about 200 queer zines on QZAP, and we probably have a total of upwards of 800. I spend the majority of my time working on QZAP these days.

In addition to zines, I bake bread, cook, garden, sometimes make super8 films, ride my bike, read YA fiction, listen to a variety of musics and dance around in my underwear.

My (incomplete) zineogrophy:
1993 - Nikita's Boot #1-4?
1999-2006 - Mutate Zine #1-10 (queer punk/pop culture zine)
2004? - Crush minizine (about crushes)
2006 - Soy Boi - Queer Adventures in My Vegetarian Kitchen (cookzine)
2006 - The Black Briefcase minizine (about spies)
2006-present - Gendercide #1-5
2008 - Peulah Shaveh Chayim (a zine about radical Queer Judaism)
2009 - present - QZAP:meta
2009 - Heavy Mayo (a mayonnaise zine)
I've got several other zines that I'm working on at the moment, but they're ongoing projects right now.

Call for Submissions: Us Amazonians - A Kirsty MacColl fanzine

Call for Submissions:

Us Amazonians - A Kirsty MacColl fanzine

Happy Christmas yer arse!  I'm looking for essays, non-fiction stories, and artwork about Kirsty MacColl and your experiences with her music.  It could be the first time you heard one of her songs, or how her backing vocals on that one Smiths track captured your heart.  Maybe her lyrics spoke to you in a certain way, or she was the soundtrack to a memorable night.

• Articles should be 300-1000 words

Cookzines Wanted!!!

Posted on August 11, 2011 at 2:30pm 0 Comments

I've got an upcoming deadline to write a cookzine review article for LibraryJournal.  I've got a couple, but I'm looking for a few more.



• Currently available

• Real zines, not cookbooks that started as zines

• Pretty much any style as long as it's about food and has recipes.


Additional wants:

• Diversity!  I'd love to see POC cookzines, queer cookzines, and non-vegan cookzines in addition to the awesome vegan and…


Suggestions/Talking Points needed - Please Help

Posted on June 8, 2011 at 4:09pm 2 Comments

Over the weekend I ran into an friend who owns one of Milwaukee's awesome indy bookstores.  I'd mentioned to him in the past that he should carry zines, and he's always hemmed and hawed about it.


When I saw him on Sunday he said he was open to having a discussion about it.  So I'm asking for talking points to convince him.  I think it would be great, as MKE doesn't have that many places that carry zines.


Questions I'm anticipating:

1) Which Zines? …

I've started a food/cookzine distro at www.wingedsnail99zinedistro.blogspot.com

I would love to carry your food related zines (Soi Boi and Mayonaise, others?.

Maybe you could pass on my info to others you know who write cookzines?

Thanks so much!

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.See More
