We Make Zines

a place for zinesters - writers and readers

Do folks know about the Queer Zine Archive Project? I just discovered it. I plan to spend some time (when I have some time) exploring the QZAP website.

Here's the web address: http://www.qzap.org/v5/index.php

Here's some info about the QZAP:

The Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) was first launched in November 2003 in an effort to preserve queer zines and make them available to other queers, researchers, historians, punks, and anyone else who has an interest DIY publishing and underground queer communities.

Our mission statement has been consistent over the past four years:

"The mission of the Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) is to establish a "living history" archive of past and present queer zines and to encourage current and emerging zine publishers to continue to create. In curating such a unique aspect of culture, we value a collectivist approach that respects the diversity of experiences that fall under the heading "queer."

The primary function of QZAP is to provide a free on-line searchable database of the collection with links allowing users to download electronic copies of zines. By providing access to the historical canon of queer zines we hope to make them more accessible to diverse communities and reach wider audiences."

I didn't find them, but I only search for "queer." Are they under "QZAP"? I want to find them so I can make them my friend!
