POC ZINE PROJECT — Report back from SF Zinefest 2012: POC Zinester Edition! *Pt 3 of 4*

Report back from SF Zinefest 2012: POC Zinester Edition! *Pt 3 of 4*

On September 1, 2012, POC Zine Project’s Daniela Capistrano attended SF Zinefest, on a mission to meet zinesters of color. This is what she saw and who she found (part 3 of 4):

Woo! Made it <3 #sfzinefest

As I mentioned previously, I showed up at SF Zinefest exactly one hour before it was over, so I didn’t have a lot of time to browse. My focus was 100% on finding poc zinesters.

Liz Mayorga of Spunky Cat Comix (click to read my interview with her) helped me track down other poc at the fest. Just one table down from her was Gabrielle Gamboa (click to read my interview with her).

After getting to know Gabrielle, I found Bob and his friends across the room. Bob makes a zine called sugar tit and he was selling a version that was collected issues 1 - 3.

Bob's zine Sugar Tit #poczines

sugar tit covers Japanese pop and rock music. I bought a few issues for the archive and then live-tweeted a (very brief) interview with Bob, who goes by  @bobosoboboso.

How Bob got into zines:

Bob said he’s never had much trouble finding zines by poc:

I read sugar tit on my flight back to NYC and it was an interesting primer on facets of Japanese music culture that I was never exposed to before. Thanks, Bob!

Daniela has to continue getting ready for the POC Zine Project Race Riot! tour (kicking off Sept 24!), so stay tuned for one more poc zinester profile from SF Zinefest. We’ll post it tomorrow morning!
