bitchaura:

My zine is now available in distros! In the US at portlandbuttonworks and brownreclusezinedistro and Twelveohtwo in Canada.

Some Reviews:

"The ever fabulous Ari of Maximum Rock n Roll writes about finding solace in friendships and house mates while grappling with coping with trauma and transition, getting her shit together and going back to school despite being disenchanted with institutional education, her relationships with cis-men and how damaging they have been and more. Cut and paste collages, heavy text, witty and relateable. Love It!" - Nyky, Brown Recluse

"How can so much rad stuff fit in one zine!?

This zine reminds me of why I love zines. it’s filled with cut and paste and scrappy typewriter love wrapped amd sincerity and the personal is political. Ari is trying to figure it all out but instead of being an angst-y teen or existential early 20 something, this zine comes from and older place with reflection and honesty. Ari has lived in Portland and the bay area in recent years and discusses her relationships with friends, housemates, going back to school and studying fashion and textile studies despite the western and colonial aspects. Ari skillfully weaves experiences of training to be a doula with the frustration of dealing with mainstream transmisogynistic reproductive healthcare system.

One of the last parts of this zine comes with a trigger warnings for abuse, suicide, rape, gender dysphoria, sex work, etc. Ari talks about their struggles with punk bro dudes, boundaries, being a queer punk, being queer, body issues, heteronormativity, and a lot of other heavy stuff in a conversational tone of a friend and a late night porch chat. Ari hasn’t figured everything out, but she’s got a lot of shit locked down and I really admire her.

The end of this zine is a list of Synthpop guilty pleasures which I fully support!” - Alex, Portland Button Works

Stop by their distros and show your support!

Click here to support Maranda Elizabeth & Writing Trans Genres by Maranda Elizabeth

"Maranda Elizabeth is a writer, zinester, non-binary trans* genderqueerdo femme, twin, and recovering alcoholic. In 2012, they released their first book, Telegram: A Collection of 27 Issues, with Mend My Dress Press, and in 2013, they self-published their first novel,Ragdoll HouseTelegram: A Collection of 27 Issues contains a decade of their zine of the same name, featuring extremely personal stories with a focus on mental health & illnesses, friendship, self-care, support, writing and creativity, recovery and sobriety, finding and making a home, and embracing weirdnesses. Ragdoll House is a queer young adult novel about two girls in a small town deciding if they should stay or if they should leave, while struggling with alcohol, jealousy, trauma, and love…

The Writing Trans Genres: Emergent Literatures and Criticism Conference is happening in Winnipeg, Manitoba from May 22nd - 24th, and I wanna go! Due to my chronic pain condition, I’m no longer able to go on long-disatnce road trips, so flying has become my only option. I need help getting my little tattooed hands on a plane ticket and hotel room!

Attending the Writing Trans Genres conference would be pretty much unspeakably incredible & magical & necessary for myself and my writing process - and thus, for YOU, my readers, too! Although I’ve been writing for more than a decade, I’ve very rarely had the chance to do so in a space (whether physical or psychic) that was trans*-created & trans*-dominated. My writing has been influenced by a cis gaze and by own internalized gender-stuff, in a way that I must escape, if only briefly…

For those of you who’ve been asking me, or asking other trans* folks what actions you can take to be a better ally and to push back against cis privilege, this is just one (of many!!!) ideas & options: Help one trans* person make their way to a trans* gathering! I think it’s crucial for us to be able to create spaces together where we can learn, share, cry, laugh, whatever; unfortunately, it’s not always possible to make this magic happen, it’s not always possible to be present.”

If you can, consider donating to Maranda’s fundraiser to get to the Writing Trans Genres conference! There are some REALLY rad prizes!

issue 79 is now available! grab it here. 
Featuring Tony Molina, The Dopamines, We Were There: Voices from L.A. Punk’s First Wave, Cheryl Klein Contemplates Her Cyborg Boobs, Class Bigotry in Higher Education.
Tony Molina: Daryl talks to the elusive Tony Molina (The Ovens, Caged Animal) about shredding, House of Pain’s DJ, and smoking PCP. Tony was the principle songwriter of the Bay Area’s I-want-to-kill-myself-and-shred-righteously-over-ignorant-riffs-and-Beatles-pop-perfection-songs band The Ovens. You’ll learn what Tony is down with and what he thinks is whack. 
The Dopamines: Kevin Dunn day drinks with The Dopamines and discusses the alpha juggalo, shit and piss, and dick jokes. It’s irreverent, silly, and uncomfortably endearing. Kevin gets the band to unravel some hilarious and horrendous tour stories; throwing pee out of a moving car, pool hall mac and cheese bites, and shitting on windshields. Junior high has yet to end for The Dopamines.We Were There: Voices from L.A. Punk’s First Wave: Alice Bag provides an erudite and personal account of the first wave of L.A. punk. It’s easy to look back on an era of music and mistake records as indelible accounts of a community. It’s easy to miss that what we’re often discussing is a couple of months/weeks that define an “era.” Alice does a fantastic job of being a punk cartographer. She puts you on the map and unveils that the walls that history has erected between scenes are often put there by laziness and misrepresentation. This is a must read. Cheryl Klein Contemplates Her Cyborg Boobs: Cheryl interviews Sara Hendren about design, prosthetics, and the special needs community. The interview is framed by Cheryl through her own experience with cancer and prosthetics. The conversation moves from the connection between science, the tech industry, and the role of artistic design in providing assistive technologies, to a discussion about bodily norms and the disability community. Fascinating, informative, and a pleasure to read. Class Bigotry in Higher Education: Chris Pepus examines the class inequality pervasive throughout America’s colleges. Chris takes to task enrollment biases, hereditary wealth, and social profiling. Class discrimination is an overlooked problem in the college admittance practices. Written with both insider academic knowledge and a punk’s eye for bullshit, Chris demystifies the class bigotry found at every level in the conversation regarding higher education. Here’s the full article.

Marya is a rad lady who is starting
The Pamphleteer Project 
and you should help her out:

HI! MY NAME IS MARYA— I’m the founder of ABQ Zine Fest, (now in its 4th year) The Albuquerque Zine Library, and a co-founder/curator of The Tannex, a DIY performance clubhouse, in this outpost, in the high desert of New Mexico. I love my creative community, and I do a lot to support and nurture it. I’m asking for your support as I embark on a new project that expands my love for zines, self-publishing, and storytelling …
THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECT MISSION: to help diversify existing zine collections, or help establish new ones by presenting women/feminist focused, people of color influenced, gender-inclusive zines and comics to groups and collectives around the world.
YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECTwill help me get to Sweden to present a pop-up zine library and free workshops at the TITWRENCH Stockholm Festival— a women’s music festival. The fest was founded in Denver by Sarah Slater in 2008. TITWRENCH Stockholm is the first satellite of the original fest. After the event, I will donate 100-200 zines to a collective in the city. 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
YOUR GENEROUS FINANCIAL SUPPORT will:
Cover airfare to Stockholm.
Pay for simple materials to set up the zine library. 
If we surpass the goal of $2,500, this will allow me to take this pilot program and expand its reach to other collectives within the punk/zine community and beyond. Someday, I imagine this project being able to support other zinesters interested in delivering zines to groups and communities.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
WHY STOCKHOLM?
To spite our perceptions of Sweden being a utopia, The country is more diverse than the media reflects. Along with the changes to this nation comes unrest. Last year, Stockholm experienced 5 days of rioting.  On March 8th of this year, an act of fascism in the form of a knife attack occurred on the night of International Women’s Day, injuring several women taking part in a Reclaim the Night demonstration. These are acts of violence, but they are also acts of ignorance. The Pamphleteer Project supports the independent voice by presenting diversity as a means of and solidarity with local communities striving for peace through mutual acceptance. 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
WHY ZINES?
I know zines to be a form that can open pathways to self-expression when other avenues are blocked, guide people through difficult conversations, and fuel strong political actions in communities through the power of the independent voice. Most importantly, zines can connect us to the human intimacy of storytelling.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
+ Due to time constraints, and optimum ticket-buying, please donate to the project via paypal. I know, I know… your donation via credit card is also appreciated!  
+ If you can’t contribute $$ please donate ZINES that fit the criteria mentioned in the project description. Please email me at thepamphleteerproject at gmail dot com to find out where to submit your zine! 
THANK YOU!
