amazing initiative. keep it up. reading these zines with outspoken poc voices have empowered me and given me even more motivation to write my stories and continue the discussions.” — Jane Porter, Zsa Zsa Zine
We get messages like these every day through Tumblr, Twitter, Facebook, and via email. Thank you for your support and positive thoughts. We are all creating culture together, and our own liberation.
Our vision for 2013 is to keep doing what we’re already doing: exploring the possibilities of activism and community through materiality — in spaces digital and physical.
There’s so much more to see and do. Let’s embrace our hopes and fears and make it happen … together.

ABOUT JANE PORTER
Jane, who contacted us through Facebook looking for physical copies of Race Riot #1 and #2 (we’re hooking them up!), is part of Zsa Zsa Zine, a queer feminist zine/comic library collective based in Amsterdam.
Zsa Zsa Zine is “a space for zinefreaks, comicfans, zinesters, artists, and every one else who loves comics, zines, coffee and cupcakes. You can watch, read, draw, write, paint, cut & paste, eat, drink, hang out ( or over) or even fall a sleep! We like to focus on (self identified) women, queers and feminist comic and zine artists but of course everyone interested is super welcome!”
Location: Fort van Sjakoo, Jodenbreestraat 24, centre of Amsterdam
