a place for zinesters - writers and readers
CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS:
MAKING NEW MAPS is a compilation zine about reconsidering, making changes to, or stopping their current or future socially and/or medically transitioning as transgender, transsexual, intersex, genderqueer or otherwise non-binary, gender variant, questioning, and other people.
Here are some ideas to get your thoughts flowing:
~ moving beyond the dominant narratives & images of trans* and genderqueer identities and experiences and transition paths
~ gender & body autonomy (or lackthereof) and intersex, trans*, and genderqueer people; gender policing, stereotyping
~ the pathologization of trans*, intersex, non-binary, etc. people
~ transitioning medically underground
~ herbal / holistic / alternative transition methods
~ non-binary folks and transitioning (socially and/or medically)
~ misogyny, transmisogyny, and anti-femininity in trans* (and queer) spaces & communities
~ shifting gender identity, expression, experiences before, during or after social and/or medical transition
~ stopping transitioning (voluntarily or involuntarily) socially and/or medically
~ navigating gendered spaces (bathrooms, etc.)
~ language, pronouns
