QZAP talk

“The mission of the Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) is to establish a “living history” archive of past and present queer zines and to encourage current and emerging zine publishers to continue to create. In curating such a unique aspect of culture, we value a collectivist approach that respects the diversity of experiences that fall under the heading “queer.”

The primary function of QZAP is to provide a free on-line search-able database of the collection with links allowing users to download electronic copies of zines. By providing access to the historical canon of queer zines we hope to make them more accessible to diverse communities and reach wider audiences.”

an open discussion about queer zines… their history, importance to both queer and zinester communities, specific titles, etc.

Moe Bowstern Reading and Open Mic

Come and watch the amazing Moe Bowstern read from her newest issue of Xtra Tuf.

About Xtra Tuf #6

Moe opens up Xtra Tuf #6 to a wide variety of writers, all talking about one thing: their first year as commercial fishermen and women. For some, it is their first and last season fishing. For others, it is the first in a long line. Regardless of how long they stuck around, their stories are fascinating. It is as though you are given a 160-page peek into a hidden world. A world with its own vocabulary, rituals, culture, and inside jokes. Like the other issues of Xtra Tuf, this is good storytelling.

This event is free and open to the public. There will be an open mic after Moe’s performance.
