POC ZINE PROJECT — Thanks for your tumblr. I'm highly interested in zines, but an expert by no means. I'm doing a lot of stabbing in the dark and finding lots of great, feminist and POC work, but mostly by accident. Excuse me if this is something you've posted about already, but I'm particularly interested in POC zines w/an LBGTQ perspective, especially if it is somehow teen oriented. I know some teens who could benefit from such a perspective. I'd like to read them as well as pass them along. Thanks again.

Hello,

Thank you for your interest. There are MANY poc zines with an LGBTQ perspective out there.

To start, if you haven’t already, check out MUSE ZINE #9: State of the Heart, which is by and for teens, the Dari Project, GREENZINE by Cristy C. Road (order from her website), search the amazing QZAP.org for POC topics, check out zines by the MOONROOT collective, scan our Tumblr to find zines from an LGBTQ perspective, and contact Jenna Freedman at the Barnard Zine Library for suggestions and search strategies: zines@barnard.edu.

We don’t like to make assumptions about POC identity through avis and a few blog posts, so we hope you find this helpful. If you’re not a person of color, please read our White Ally FAQ. Thanks!

Community: If you know of zines by and for POC teens with an LGBTQ perspective, please reblog and add your notes. Thanks!
