What would you like people to know about the zines you create?
We’re starting Seed Paper, a newspaper that is made by and for lbgtqia+ beings of color to publish their art and writings, both fictional and not. The idea is to have a safe digital and printed space to share ideas, community updates, tips, essays, and anything else. We’re also preparing to start a few self care zines that focus on menstrual health, healthy eating for stress, and tools for coping with mental health. Lastly, we’re going to host events and retreats to celebrate gathering, health, and community-building.
Why you are looking forward to tabling at L.A. Zine Fest 2017?
Community. We’re excited to see old friends, meet new ones, support local artists and all the magic they make happen, and finally to be in a space that is imaginative and helps to strengthen all of our voices.
