Microcosm, it’s time for change

Zines in Video!

A few years back I gave my friend Jackie a copy of my first zine, I Am Not The Rain, which I put together with my friend Amber.

Boycott Microcosm, Support Survivors

I have started a zine blog (http://sarahtearex.wordpress.com/) where I originally posted this but as a part of my protest, I wanted to spread the word to the We Make Zines community, so here it is...

 

In my last post I was excitedly nattering about all the zine happenings in my life. Among these was hearing from Microcosm that they wanted to distro a zine of mine. Somehow the background on the founder and collective member Joe…

Sleeps With Ghosts #1







This issue talks about an abusive relationship and getting out of it, first sexual encounters, sexual and emotional abuse, the basics of BDSM and how it

differs from abuse, queer identity, and silence, among other things. The
