GET TO KNOW YOUR ZINESTER: How Are Your Insides?

Describe your most recent zine.

I just finished making ‘Period. The Zine.‘ with my friend Amelia (from Double Union feminist hacker/maker space. Check it out!) We got chatting about blood and gross stuff and realized we should make a zine together that examines social norms about menstruation. Lots of lovely people sent us their stories, drawings, rants and creative writing and I’m really proud of it!

Of all the things you’ve ever made, zine-related or otherwise, what’s your one favorite?

I made a zine this summer called ‘My Family’s Vaginas‘ where I interviewed my Mum and my sister about the health of their respective vaginas. It was really inspiring to hear them talk about what they’ve been through. Also having a zine with a neon cover with ‘My Family’s Vaginas‘ on it has sparked really interesting conversations with people at zine fests, which is always fun and partly the reason why I wanted to make it in the first place.
