Columbia students making a panda poster for the People's Climate March. Photo from Agustina F. Besada on Twitter.

If you're wondering what this photo has to do with zines, zines have anarchopunk politics behind them, lots are about the environment, and climate change effects us all, regardless.

Between vacation, conference attendance, picking up a zine collection donation (Thank you, ♥Cheryl Tapper♥!!!) and Labor Day, I cataloged zines only once in August and in September so far. I've been missing my beloveds, so hooray!

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!

I spent a few hours on Saturday tabling at Pete's Mini Zine Fest, so I'm doing just half a day of zine cataloging. Sad, but true!
