Read a F*cking Zine: 50 Zines by Queer People of Color

[Description: page 4 of 4 of our article on Autostraddle.com]

As we noted at the top of this pieces we intentionally released on Autostraddle.com (thanks for your support!), the list is not meant to represent all zines created by QTPOC. Use it as a rabbit hole of sorts on your path toward discovering more queer zines by people of color.

Check the bottom of the last page of the piece for information on how we came up with this list, plus feel free to submit suggestions for the updated list we’ll launch with our official POCZP website in Spring of 2014!

This list would not have been possible without the contributions from - and collaboration with - the following folks:

- Queer Zine Archive Project

- Barnard Zine Library

- POCZP founder Daniela Capistrano & artist/activist Nia King

If you have any questions/concerns/love you want to share via email regarding this piece, send away! —> poczineproject [at] gmail dot com

Please help us fulfill our mission to make zines by people of color easy to find, distribute and share by sharing this curated list. Thank you. <3 - POCZP



Founded in March 2009 and still run by a dedicated team of indentured masochists, Autostraddle is an intelligent, hilarious & provocative voice and a progressively feminist online community for a new generation of kickass lesbian, bisexual & otherwise inclined ladies (and their friends).

If everyone in our community gave $10, we would more than meet our fundraising goal for 2013. If you have it to spare, we appreciate your support. All funds go to our 2013 tour, the Legacy Series and the poverty zine series.
