WHAT WOULD YOU LIKE PEOPLE TO KNOW ABOUT THE ZINES YOU CREATE AND/OR WHY YOU ARE LOOKING FORWARD TO TABLING AT L.A. ZINE FEST 2016?: I write as an act of revenge. As a queer boy of color into punk and DIY culture, I am avenging my erasure from the scene. I refuse to be made invisible. I refuse to be tokenized. I refuse to be anything but the person I am meant to become. My zines consist of personal narratives, essays, and poems about queer love and loss, queer loneliness and depression, and queer power and magic. I look forward to tabling at LA Zine Fest because it’ll be an amazing opportunity to connect with other queer zinesters and allies. Our stories, our lives, and our magic is something that has always sustained me. I look forward to zine trading and making new friends and being inspired by other writers. By tabling, I want the world to know we exist and that our lives are just as tragic as they are as beautiful. We are Der Eigene. We are the future.
Get to Know Your Zinester features collages of the 2016 Fest exhibitors.
Clockwise from left; the zinesters, their work, more work, and a source of inspiration!
