October 16- 18, 2015
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!
Lots of zines were purchased but none bought this week because I spoke and tabled at the Brooklyn Zine Fest.
Brooklyn Zine Fest panel coordinator and Barnard alum Jordan Alam is facilitating the panel topics this weekend at Brooklyn Zine Fest!

40 Cats Drinking 40s photo from Ventricular Projects blog. For some reason I thought this was an appropriate Labor Day-themed image.
This weekend I've added zines I bought or traded for at Pete's Mini Zine Fest and the Librarians and Archivists to Palestine thank you perk zine.
