Black Lesbian DIY Fest @ Lesbian Herstory Archives

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!

In support of YWLI

An instructor in the Young Women's Leadership Initiative program asked me to pull zines with these guidelines:

I think it's less important to show range--since they will be making pretty traditional format zines--and more important just to show strong examples with good layout and intelligent writing. The more "issue"-oriented the better, since I'm going to be focusing on the idea of making political zines as opposed to purely personal or diaristic ones.
