I <3 Print Media and Transformative Arts Tracks  
Allied Media Conference, Detroit, June 21, 2014. 


A week delay but it’s done! Here are some photos from the workshop and a link to the collectively made zine that everyone snapped on!! Hope everyone learned a few things about putting together a zine and the importance of having our own intentional spaces/documenting our stories as QTPOC. We are honored to have had that opportunity to share space with ya’ll and to hear your words of struggles, strength and healing.

LA ZINE FEST ZINE (meta) by browntourage :P

The LA zine fest got me missing the feeling of putting pen to paper. The DIY aspect is so liberating- you can print whatever you want however you want! Whether the pages are filled with photos, doodles, collages, opinions, comics, poetry, or manifestos, zines provide a freeform field for people of all backgrounds to express themselves and find people who relate. 

Flocks of people gathered in the Helms Bakery district Sunday to appreciate over a hundred zine stalls. With such a diversity of styles and content, I tried to check up on women/poc run zines, and ended up taking style pics because i couldn’t not. I was so overstimulated by beauty the event itself merited a zine of its own. Here’s my online attempt.

Featuring: Teen Angels * Dum Dum Zine * Brown Recluse Zine Distro * Tiny Splendor * Rosi

queer-filam-artivism:

ethiopienne:

DarkMatter is a queer South Asian performance and literary arts duo who “make noise, perform spoken word, write excessively, facilitate workshops, and flail [their] arms around.” 

Alok Vaid-Menon is a South Asian artivist who has performed & organized with queer movements around the world. They are committed to building radical queer movements and bodies that resist white supremacy and imperialism and like making art that thinks about these, and other what ifs. You can read some of their work at returnthegayze.tumblr.com and queerlibido.tumblr.com

Janani Balasubramanian is a South Asian literary and performance artist based in Brooklyn.  Their work deals broadly with empire, desire, microflora, ancestry, apocalypse, and the Future.  They write for Black Girl Dangerous (an online forum for QTPOC), and work with the Rootspace Design Collective.  They’re currently working on their first sci-fi novel, H.  You can read more of Janani’s work at queerdarkenergy.com.

Obsessed with these two from afar.
