Daniela, founder of POC Zine Project, will be attending the Baltimore Feminist BBQ Series today (August 12) to have fun, learn more about Baltimore’s DIY, activist and zine communities and connect with cool folks.
The Baltimore tour stop for the POC Zine Project tour is October 6, so Daniela is looking forward to meeting new poc zinesters and allies in Baltimore today!

IT’S NOT ALL ABOUT YOU: blogger Suzy X. examines the rugged individualism so prevalent in mainstream feminist politics today. From Slutwalk and sex positivity, to the defense of reproductive rights, and to the liberal aspirations of Having It All™, she believes one of the setbacks of feminism today is the narrow interpretation of “the personal is political,” that prioritizes a focus on the individual over intersectional and collective organizing.http://suzy-x.tumblr.com/

MOONROOT issue 2, MOONROUTES is availabe on issuu, y’all!
We <3 the folks behind MOONROOT so much! Here’s the description for MOONROUTES:
"MOONROOT is an ongoing collective project about race, gender, and bodies. It is an evolving experiment in deep, loving community-building among self-identified womyn, trans*, and/or genderqueer persons of Asian descent (whether East Asian, South Asian, Pacific Islander, Southeast Asian, Central Asian, West Asian, hapa or mixed) living in diaspora, across borders and geographies. We believe that because our multiple and intersecting identities often render us invisible and misrepresented (even within our own communities), reclaiming our voices is a radical act of love and recognition."
