Make sure to go to the "Black Lesbian DIY Fest @ Lesbian Herstory Archives," on October 18th, 2014 from 11am-5pm. It will offer self-identified black lesbians a space to sell, share, or trade zines, chapbooks, posters, art, pamphlets, small press books or any other forms of handmade or DIY print based items.
They are accepting applications to table until September 13th. Self-identified black lesbians are given tabling preference regardless of content, however allies with materials/content about black lesbians are strongly encouraged to apply.
Black Lesbian DIY Fest is organized by Sherley C. Olopherne, the curator of the zine series “Black Lesbians @Lesbian Herstory Archives 1980s-2010.” (We have a version of that zine about Black Lesbians in the '70s.)
All profits go to the Lesbian Herstory Archives!
Come over to the Barnard Library for our annual zine-making event this Wednesday, July 23 11:00-5:00! We'll have our usual 6 hour zine challenge, but anyone can stop in for any amount of time they choose. We'll have juice boxes, vegan snacks, and glue sticks (but those are not for eating). Come join us and finish anything you might have started on our MTA Zine residency, which was featured in the New York Times! Hope to see you!
Peachy Keen #4 is taking submissions right now on ways in which intersections can create more productive and positive activist spaces. Ideas include, but are not limited to, "The role of internet activism, navigating queer spaces, accessibility, academic theory and exclusivity, the role of allies, the "boy's club" in the emo/punk scene, navigating social change under the anarcho-lens, negotiating the neo-western perspectives of feminism, body politics, and art as activism." Talk about variety!
I'm crossing off Days 2 and 4 at once by reading this series today. It's the International Queer Art and Activism Zine: Exploring the intersections of art and activism.
You know what that means? An entire month of zine related activities! The amazing and talented Alex Wrekk has created a poster to to help everyone keep track of all 31 activities you can do. I'm so excited I think I'll start right now!
Amelia and Sarah have just finished putting together Period. The Zine! and are already beginning to take submissions for issue #2. You know you want to submit something or get a copy of issue 1!
When you're read as many riot frrrl zines as Jenna and I have, you start to recognize band names even if you've never heard any of their music. One that came up recently was Bunnygrunt.
After laughing a little bit and looking at gifs of bunnies, I decided to do some research into the band.
