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.

CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS: Tom Girl #3, the Gender issue
Tom Girl is a feminist zine consisting of collages and writing. 
DEADLINE: First week of July, 2013 - the absolute last day is July 5.
From Judith:
Hello Everybody, I’m having a call for submissions for issue three of Tom Girl! The theme for this issue is Gender. I know it’s a very broad topic but that’s why I wanted to discuss it. There is so much under the umbrella of gender, which is one of the main reasons I wanted to have a call for submissions.
I only have my perspective, and I can read and research all I want but it’s not the same as a first person account. When it comes to gender, everybody has an opinion, personal experience, a story. I wanted to expand this zine by adding many other voices.
In addition to that I wanted to answer a few specific questions:
 Is gender even necessary/real? If so why?
If gender is real/necessary, what does it mean to be a “woman” or a “man”, outside of traditional gender roles?
Are woman and men truly different or has society told us so?  
And I wanted to discuss gender beyond traditional “female” and “male”, trans*, gender fluid etc. I want everything from poetry to drawings to essays. As long as it fits within the theme. If you are not sure if your idea or piece fits within the parameters, please feel free to email me. 
When is this due??? All submissions are do around the first week of July (July1-July 5) and the absolute last day is July 5.Where do I submit/send comments, questions, concerns??? email at simplebutchic247@gmail.com

COMMUNITY SUBMISSION: Spit & Rip Zine (January 2013)

Spit & Rip Zine (January 2013)

TITLE: Spit & Rip Zine

CREATOR: Bernie Button 

RELEASE: January, 2013

ORIGIN: San Diego, CA, USA

ORDER DETAILS: Available at Etsy Shop, PaperMulatta

DESCRIPTION: 

I am a 25 year old mixed (black & white) girl on the west coast. Basically I was super hype about the selection of zines available on the net, UNTIL I realized that most of them don’t come from my perspective: a struggling minority womanist. So I’m trying to help fill in that gap. Writing is thinking, so I’m just plotting the universe with you guys. Hope you enjoy.
