Muchacha: A quarterly fanzine that seeks to promote the “F” word feminism, encourage involvement in the DIY music/art community & inspire participation in grassroots activism.

DETAILS FROM DAISY

The theme for the upcoming issue #5 (Spring, 13’) of my fanzine Muchacha is “Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century”. I am calling out to Latina/Chicana/Hispanic identified women worldwide to contribute their voices though an array of mediums including poetry, essays, art, comics, etc. I want this issue to serve as a time capsule for future generations of Brown women. Let our voices be heard and let us pick up the pieces and continue the lessons of our foremothers. As Gloria Anzaldúa brilliantly said: “I will no longer be made to feel ashamed of existing. I will have my voice: Indian, Spanish, white. I will have my serpent’s tongue - my woman’s voice, my sexual voice, my poet’s voice. I will overcome the tradition of silence.”

Join me in overcoming the traditions of silence. To submit your contributions contact me at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com with “Brown Queen” as the subject. Deadline for submissions is March 1st, 2013.

La tema de mi próxima edición #5 (Primavera, 13’) di me revistilla Muchacha es “Brown Queen: Latina Voices of the 21st Century” (Reina Morena: Voces Latinas Del Siglo 21). Estoy llamando a las mujeres identificadas como Latina/Chicana/Hispana por todo el mundo para contribuir sus voces a través de una variedad de medios incluyendo poesía, ensayos, arte, cómicos, etc. Quiero que esta edición sirva como una cápsula del tiempo para las futuras generaciones de mujeres Latinas. Deje que nuestras voces se escuchen, y deje que nosotros recogemos los pedazos y seguir las lecciones de nuestras antepasadas. Como Gloria Anzaldúa brillantemente dijo: “Ya no mi haré sentir vergüenza por existir. Tendré mi voz: India, Español, blanca. Tendré mi lengua de serpiente - la voz de mi mujer, mi voz sexual, la voz de mi poeta. Voy a superar la tradición del silencio.”

Acompáñeme en el vencimiento de las tradiciones de silencio. Para enviar sus contribuciones póngase en contacto conmigo Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com con “Reina Morena” en el título. Fecha límite para submisions es Marzo 1st, 2013.
