CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Totally Radical Muslims Zine - Volume 3

Click the link for more submission details and to access the original announcement. POCZP has been in touch with Totally Radical Muslims collective since Summer of 2013 and we’re looking forward to finding ways to partner in 2014.

About Totally Radical Muslims (TRM)

"a group of oakland based muslims have started a zine to confront, share, name and re-imagine experiences of islamophobia.

surviving and being a muslim in this political moment is a constant struggle and political act.

this zine is to lift up the perspectives of often untold muslims - the radicals, queers, fabulous and fierce folks - through adding narratives of navigating the spectrum of practice, belief, ideology, sect, gender and islamophobia.

this zine is about resistance and resilience, and us telling the stories for ourselves with all their edges, contradictions, beauties and gems. this is about saying no to islamophobia and being racialized and politiczed because of our muslim identity - regardless of how secular, radical, and culturally muslim we are.

this is about saying yes to the liberation of all people.

yes to being allied with, and an ally for others.

this is taking a step towards our collective healing.”

COMMUNITY SUBMISSION: ‘Korea: The Queer Edition’

Korea: The Queer Edition (June 2013)

[DESCRIPTION: original cover of Korea: The Queer Edition]

TITLE: Korea: The Queer Edition 

AUTHOR: EstellaMiyuki Baker//Queer Scribe Productions

RELEASE: June 30, 2013 (6th zine in a series)

ORIGIN: Seoul, South Korea (author is presently based in Philadelphia, PA)

DESCRIPTION FROM MIYUKI: 

During my stay in Seoul, I participated in many ‘obvious’ gay activities but my goal was to meet as many different types of queer artists and activists inside and outside of the so-called Seoul gay scene, and highlight their varied and unique approaches and thoughts in doing LGBTQ activism in South Korea.  

Many queer Korean activists I spoke to were a part of labor rights and/or disability related movements, advocating strongly for intersectional work which emphasized ally-building and finding common causes. Larger LGBTQ organizations like Donginryun were member-supported, so rather than being subjeted to governmental or institutional demands that often accompany grant money, membership fees gave organizations more freedom and a democratic form of accountability.

The zine is filled with documentation of the many rallies and events I participated in as well as the art of queer Korean/expat artists.

COMMUNITY SPOTLIGHT: Meet POCZP’s 2013 #RACERIOTTOUR Driver Tracey Brown <3

Community,

We shared the mistakes we made during last year’s #raceriottour (view prezi) so that we would set a new standard for this year’s tour. In response to feedback, POCZP founder Daniela Capistrano prioritized Native/Indigenous Solidarity, self-care and caregiving for this year’s tour planning process.

Mainstream artists tour with their own wellness teams. People who plan corporate-sponsored tours understand the importance of having such a team in place. Tracey Brown is one of several #RaceRiotTour support team members we’ll be announcing in the coming days …

POCZP'S 2013 #RACERIOTTOUR DRIVER TRACEY BROWN 1 of 2

[DESCRIPTION: Tracey Brown. Photo credit: Tracey Brown]

ABOUT TRACEY BROWN, 2013 #RACERIOTTOUR DRIVER & MEDIATION SUPPORT

Tracey’s role on the #raceriottour is critical. In partnership with POCZP founder Daniela, Tracey is managing travel logistics/vehicle operations through our journey to 20 cities across the US. She will be the dedicated tour driver for the duration of the entire tour (with routine breaks from the POCZP support team).

Tracey will also provide (along with others on tour) mediation support as conflicts arise (they do! and it’s OK). 

POCZP founder Daniela met Tracey at the 2012 Anarchist People of Color convergence in New Orleans and was impressed with her organizational skills and her coalition building with the Ovarian Psyco-Cycles. This is the origin of the collaboration.

Without Tracey’s support coordinating rental logistics, this tour would not be happening.

Tracey, in her own words:

Born and raised in New Orleans, LA, Tracey is a community organizer
and survivor. With her love for the New Orleans POC community guiding her, she graduated from University of Hawaii at Manoa in 2009 with a dual degree in Psychology and American Studies.

Upon returning to her hometown, she became involved in various social justice endeavors such as bike accessibility, food justice, anti-racism work, housing justice, and anything else she could get involved in and help create accountability to and visibility of the local POC community. Among these undertakings was the collective organization of the 2012 Anarchist People of Color convergence in New Orleans.

Tracey currently works at the New Orleans Food Co-op while she
prepares to apply to graduate school in order to obtain her Master’s
degree in Community and Clinical Psychology. She also works with NOLA to Angola, an anti-PIC organization that provides a long-distance, solidarity bike ride to raise funds for the Cornerstone Builders’ Bus Project, the only bus service that provides free monthly rides to low-income families who have loved ones in one of the five Louisiana detention facilities. 

Tracey intends to use her experience organizing with various groups and her time with POCZP to create accountable, accessible, multidimensional community building, and POC driven community mental and spiritual health healing.

We’re so excited to collaborate with you, Tracey! <3 - POCZP

Hidden Expressions Vol. 1 (2012) - COVER

[DESCRIPTION: Cover of ‘Hidden Expressions Vol .1’] Hidden Expressions Vol. 1 (2012) _ DEDICATION

[DESCRIPTION: Dedication page for ‘Hidden Expressions Vol .1’]

Hidden Expressions Vol. 1 (2012) - EXCERPT[DESCRIPTION: Excerpt ‘Hidden Expressions Vol .1’]

ZINE TITLE: Hidden Expressions Vol .1 

AUTHOR(S): Contributions, wisdom, and creativity of transgender and gender non-conforming people who have been or are currently incarcerated (supported by Transformative Justice Law Project of Illinois

RELEASE DATE: January 31, 2012

ORIGIN: Chicago,Illinois, USA

DESCRIPTION: 

The Transformative Justice Law Project of Illinois (TJLP) is a collective of radical lawyers, social workers, activists, and community organizers who are deeply committed to prison abolition, transformative justice, and gender self-determination.

Hidden Expressions is an annual ‘zine publication created exclusively with the contributions, wisdom, and creativity of transgender and gender non-conforming people who have been or are currently incarcerated. Submissions can include stories, drawings, “how-to” guides, poetry, guides to surviving prison as a trans person, erotica, recipes, treats, hobbies, writing and art tips, comic strips, and any other expression of resilience and talent.

A digital copy is available for free download on our website, and hard copies are distributed nationally to TJLP’s clients, other incarcerated trans and gender-nonconforming folks, archives, libraries, and organizations that work with trans people and people on the inside. This ‘zine is a tangible expression of our organization’s mission to connect incarcerated trans and gender non-conforming people to their peers, friends, family, allies, and the larger Prison Abolition movement, both inside and outside of prisons and jails. TJLP provides the resources (paper, printing, layout, etc.) and the people-power on the outside to put it together, but the content of the ‘zine is entirely created by transgender and gender non-conforming folks who are currently locked up in facilities across the United States.

This ‘zine is an expression of what is really happening for trans and gender non-conforming folks who are currently imprisoned – including thoughts and strategies for survival. We hope this publication can combat the isolation and silence that the prison-industrial complex inflicts by creating a sense of community through the voices on the page. - tjlp.org

Let’s Talk About: Nia King on her ‘punk privilege’

By Nia King, POCZP Contributor

There are a lot of things I hate about punk culture. You can read about most of them in The First 7-Inch Was Better: How I Became an Ex-Punk. But one of the positive things I took away from punk was the knowledge that I could do things myself (whether it was publishing a zine, putting a show together, or cooking a meal for a big crowd at Food Not Bombs with little help and little culinary training).

I’m not saying the zines, shows, or meals were exceptionally well-produced, but as a pink-haired 16 year old, I knew they were all things I could do myself. I didn’t need to ask permission. 

POCZP contributor Nia King (Summer 2013)

[DESCRIPTION: Nia King assembles some of her zines at home (2013). Photo credit: Nia King] 

As I got older, being a punk became less important to me, and identities like “queer” and “woman of color” began to play a bigger role in my life. I took my passion for social justice out of the VFW kitchen, and poured it into campus organizing in college, and after graduation, an entry level job at a terrible non-profit. There I learned that doing things well required years of training, lots of money, and often outside consultants. Little emphasis was put into helping us build the skills we’d need to do things ourselves. A lot of emphasis was put into making sure I didn’t forget to use oxford commas.

Three years outside of college (and one year outside the uber-dysfunctional non-profit), I am thankful for my punk roots. Though I dropped out of art school and still draw at, what I feel, is a high school level, I started a webcomic, which is currently being featured in the Lady Drawers exhibition in Chicago. With very little audio editing experience, I started a podcast. (I record all the interviews on my phone.) And without ever having taken a journalism class, I started writing for magazines. The verdict is still out on how that’s going.

None of the things I made are award-winning, all of them are a little rough around the edges. But I’ve overcome that deep-seated fear of imperfection that comes from the knowledge that as a queer woman of color I have to be a super-overachiever to be given even half the credit I’m due. I’m amplifying the voices of people from marginalized communities (whether it be myself or other queer and trans artists of color) in a way that I wouldn’t have been able to if I’d continue to believe I needed more training and better equipment before I put my foot in the water. Growing up in punk culture and zine culture taught me, “It doesn’t have to be perfect, you just have to do it.”

I’m sure my privileges as a light-skinned, middle-class, cisgender woman had everything to do with the doors that have been opened for me. Doors were also opened for me by the incredible mentors I had at Mills College and Colorlines Magazine (which is not where I developed my fear of forgetting oxford commas, and was actually an amazingly supportive work environment.)

But punk is where I learned the DIY ethic that taught me I don’t need a ton of schooling or a ton of money to call myself an artist. I just need to make art, self-publish, and hustle to get my work to the audience that matters most to me: other folks from marginalized communities struggling to figure out if they can do it themselves.

POC Zine Project wants to see YOUR #POCZINES Collection

What does your ‪#‎poczines‬ collection look like? Send us a photo of your shelf/drawer/area under your pillow/etc. & we’ll feature it in our ‪#‎izm2013‬ reactions post first week of August.

If you only have two zines created by POC, it’s still a collection - even if you made both of them!  

Deadline: August 28, 2013

PLEASE EMAIL: poczineproject@gmail.com (we are only accepting submissions through email, thanks!)

Please be sure to include the following:

- 1-3 max photos of your #poczines collection (please make sure they are as clear as possible) with photo credit info (the higher resolution the better, thanks!)

We know many folks collect zines by authors of diverse backgrounds, so it’s 100% OK/common if you have a mix of POC and non-POC authored zines in your collection. However, for the purposes of this visibility exercise, we only want to see the zines made by POC in your collection (co-authored with non-POC is fine, as long as editor was/is POC).
