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!

The theme for the upcoming issue #5 (Spring, 13’) of my fanzine Muchacha is "Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century." I am calling out to Latina/Chicana/Hispanic identified women worldwide to contribute their voices though an array of mediums including poetry, essays, art, comics, etc. I want this issue to serve as a time capsule for future generations of Brown women. Let our voices be heard and let us pick up the pieces and continue the lessons of our foremothers. As Gloria Anzaldúa brilliantly said: "I will no longer be made to feel ashamed of existing. I will have my voice: Indian, Spanish, white. I will have my serpent’s tongue - my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence."
