    a new zine called shitty horoscopes that i’ll be premiering this year at the Toronto Queer Zine Fair, among other things! hopefully i’ll make volumes available for online purchase soon. credit where credit is due: this was inspired by the huge number of made-up horoscopes floating around tumblr lately, and angry-poems.

  4. A lil’ bit about this year’s TQZF readers!

    Whitney French of From the Root zine
    A collection of writings and images from women of colour and trans women of colour exploring the topic of hair. 

    Amrit Brar of Musterni
    Musterni’s work is fully illustrated and typically deals with the intersections of race, gender, sexuality and the supernatural, drawing largely from her own experience as a first generation Indo-Punjabi Sikh Canadian.

    Ruben Llanillos of GRRRLFAG DRAMAZINE!!!! 
    A trans femme latin@ zine! Dedicated to all non-binary and trans identified folks. The zine is filled with cute illustrations, angry femme trans politic, poetry, nasty playlists, and half-naked selfies!

    Kate Lavut of Paper Dog Press
    CHiCO 4 , the true story of a teenage girl, who dressed as a teenage boy, and took the bus to Mexico, will be hot off the press!

    Kai Millson Taylor reading from his new novella 
    Waks-Fruit is currently working with writer Kai Millson-Taylor in an effort to distribute his upcoming novella that focuses on a nation divided by gender and orientation based differences. 

    Imran Rehmani Spoken Word Artist

    clementine morrigan of from the margins is a writer, zinester and multidisciplinary artist. her first book, rupture, was published in 2012. she produced a short film entitled resurrection in 2013. she writes a zine called seawitch and also works on other zine projects. she hopes that her work will function as an invitation, encouraging others to tell their own stories.

  6. upthewitchypunx:

    I ordered a bunch of witchy-ish zine and I really enjoyed this one. It’s actually less about witches than it is about the Essex witch trials of 1645. The theory presented is that these women were poor, old, and/or disabled  and single/widowed and were actually having a Christian study group that was unsupervised by men. This was a threat to the patriarchal power. These women were learning from each other, including how to read, and possibly participated in various folk traditions related to fairies but most likely reading from an outdated prayer book.

    I found this really thoughtful and enlightening. I was also was very pleased to see a “works cited” list in the back. I think I’ll be picking this up for my distro, but you can also get a copy directly from Clementine Morrigan here.

    for folks looking for queer sci-fi…………………..



    So our distro site is here for the physical pickup action. = )

    Our HQ Metropolarity.net needs a lot of love, but since AMC planning took over my life, and I work on computers for $$$, I’m taking a summer vacay from spending any time massaging relevant blog content (although there’s so much planned!). It IS good for keeping up on our events though. 

    However… the insidious FBook is still the easiest place to keep up on our events, and a lot of our network’s events in Philly and the surrounding area. So peep us there if you really wanna keep up on what we’re doing, where we’re going. (Like actually just check the page from time to time, cause you know how FB likes to manipulate what information shows up for who and when.)
