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.

It's time for round 2 of our best zine-related cataloging entries!

Even though it's the weekend, we're still profiling zines in preparation for our Make-A-Zine Event this Wednesday! Here's number 4, "What I Saw from Where I Stood."

Trans* and queer voices of faith are something that everyone could use a little more of! So for our second featured zine this week, I'd like to spotlight Timtum : א יידישע טראנס־זינ : a trans Jew zine. Since I'm not totally sure about preferred pronouns and the author expresses a dislike for them, I'm going to refer to the author as "they."

 

Speaking of Mimi Thi Nguyen, she'll be doing a zine reading the day after Refashioning Race, Gender, and Economy. Info on her zine reading can be found here.

There's a Feminist Zine Reading at Bluestockings featuring our zine assistant Jordan Alam and our libary school intern Elvis Bakaitis! Both are prolific and excellent zinesters. Click for more for info and check out the Facebook Event.

Go bananas! Guerrilla Girls On Tour are back on the road with “Feminists Are Funny” and “If You Can Stand the Heat: The Herstory of Women and Food” making tour stops in Indiana, Canada, Massachusetts, Florida and the West coast in 2013.  For more information on bookings fe-mail aphra@guerrillagirlsontour.com
