a place for zinesters - writers and readers
'[...] when they WERE objectified and threatened.'
I'll be honest. I have a problem with this sad excuse of 'feminist representation,' and this is because I'm old fashioned. I smell the flowers, I stare at the clouds, and I complement people if I like their clothes.…
I've finally gotten around to putting together my first zine, and find myself in a bit of a pickle - it's 60+ pages.
I tore up an entire box worth of my old sketch books and scribbles because I was sick of dragging it around when I moved. I've tried to cram them all together as tightly as possible into this one…
The first issue of Gender Matters has been really successful. It's in the hands of many youth, teachers, parents and zine readers! All the sale proceeds have been donated to organizations that support trans/gender variant youth...nearly $350.00
SO LET'S MAKE ANOTHER ISSUE!
Topic: (Essays, anecdotes, comix, poetry) from gender variant folks telling stories of going through puberty and adolescence, and early adulthood experiences. Take that as…

Well, since it's International Zine Month and I figured I would write SOMETHING about my most current zine. It's called Both/And, and it's kind of about addiction, kind of about anxiety, kind of about meditation...I don't want to label it too much but it's most definitely QUEER and most definitely MENTAL HEALTH-based (I am a therapist). So, yeah, if anyone wants to trade, that would be rad. I also have issues of my previous zine called THE KEG THE CAKE THE COCK left too, which is also kind…Continue

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. It’s a zine about a lot of things, mostly about life after experiencing childhood sexual abuse. Jackie was quite excellently awesome and asked Amber and I if she could turn it into a video story. The video also turned out to be quite excellently awesome. I have wanted to get it…Continue
