Licking Stars Off Ceilings #18

Another reason to love author Clementine Cannibal:

now that i've been making zines for a long time, i'm pretty well known, and i want to say once and for all that no grrrl should ever be scared to approach me, contact me or try to be friends with me. i love grrrls and i want to be your friend. i want to read your zine. i will not make fun of it. i don't care if you have typos. i don't care if you spell shit wrong or the photocopier cut shit off the sides. i'm happy when any grrrl makes media, because grrrls are systematically silenced and i refuse to take part in that silencing.

Practice Apartment

Sandy Loam Sampler

Three itsy-bitsy one-page-folding-zines by Marissa Falco, a long-time favorite zinester of ours, as well as a generous zine donor.  (Zine donor--that sounds a little like it's a body-part donation, and in a way it is.)


Sleepy Head

This zine is undated, but we're guessing mid-1990s from the lack of an email address. Great clip art choices from Amalia Levari, whose creative outlets nowadays seem to include tweeting bus haiku.

Slip into Something Human

Slow Leek #19

"Being zine writers, and thus uncomfortable in social settings, our conversations were on the shy side."

Homo Health & Fitness (Your Guide to a New, Queer You!)

Gays--Health and hygiene--Pictorial works.
Sexual minorities--Health and hygiene--Parodies, imitations, etc. 

Kiss & Tell

Licking Stars off Ceilings #15-17

the girlVIRUS is my guitar and restringing her myself.
the girlVIRUS is graffiti, getting away with it.
the girlVIRUS isn't fear, it's a life force, and it's cautious when it wants to be but moves forward with the majesty of a lioness. we know the risks. we have to live. we love each other and our selves and this world. we have to live.
the girlVIRUS is ancient, unstoppable and brand new. it's right now grrrls. and it's all yours. what are you going to do?
