Queerkoorts – queer fair on August 18th

Something I forgot to mention in my news post earlier (I added it now) is that I’ll be tableing with FEL and our zines at the queer fair of the Queerkoorts event on Saturday August 18th, together with lots of other LGBTQIA organisations and projects. It takes place in Minus One in Ghent. See you there?

New zine: Same Heartbeats #13!

Tadaa! The newest issue of Same Heartbeats is out now, #13! I’m very excited to present you my new zine. It was written and printed during the current heat wave but this issue is actually quite dark, fitting with the number 13.

Same Heartbeats is my on-going personal-political zine series about feminism, activism, music, crafts, travelling, self-publishing, gender, archiving, DIY culture, and more. I try to publish 1 or 2 issues each year and all past issues are still available (mail me if you want to buy them or set up a trade).

 

So, in this issue we’ve got articles, comics, and drawings about:

  • Some recent zine adventures and the role that zines play in my life
  • The awesome bands Sleater-Kinney and Team Dresch
  • Travelling to the UK and discovering nice places in London and Brighton
  • Playing guitar in Lavender Witch with some extremely magnificent musicians, singers, and song-writers!
  • My feelings about the internet, the good things and the bad things
  • Gender badges I would wear
  • … and Chainsaw Bunny!

All printed on recycled paper, bound with orange-beige yarn.

A5 size, 36 pages

❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤ ❤

 

Would you like to buy a copy?

1 zine costs 2 euros + postage. (I accept bank transfers, paypal, and very well-hidden cash). I’m open to trades* too.

If you run a zine distro, please let me know if you’re interested in stocking my zine(s).

Mail to flapper_grrrl@yahoo.co.uk to place an order or if you have any questions.

(* I’m especially interested in trading for feminist/queer perzines, travel zines, comic zines, DIY how-to zines, metazines, craft zines… but get in touch if you have a different offer too!)

News & zine events (Summer)

So many announcements: zine plans, new zines, reviews, and two upcoming zine events!

 

Working on Same Heartbeats #13

News!

  • International Zine Month is over but you can still read all about it on my blog. Check my posts here.
  • My newest zine Same Heartbeats #13 is finished! (See photo on the right of “the making of”). Find out more on this blog very very soon! Recently I made some mini-zines too and you can order them separately as well as in a set!
  • I have a new zine plan to announce and it is a collaborative one: J and I will be making a self-care cookzine with easy and fast recipes for bad or low-energy days when you just want to put a frozen pizza in the oven. So we’re looking for easy and healthier alternatives for dinner, snacks… Any suggestions and ideas are of course welcome! 🙂
  • Sister Ray Zines has offered her help in making the Brussels DIY tourist zine which I am very happy about! I have to admit I was a bit stuck because it seems like such an overwhelming project. Also, Sister Ray’s zines are super cool, and creative collaborations are always fun, so it’s a total win! More and more amazing projects and places keep popping up in Brussels so it’s about time this zine gets made!
  • And last but not least! Korbi Falardeau reviewed 3 of my zines, From Spice Girls to Riot Grrrls, Dirty Lesbian, and Space Invasion on YouTube. Isn’t this cool?! Watch it here and also check out all reviews of my zines.

 

Zine events!

    Zine workshop + zine table at Ieperfest
    Sunday August 12th in Ieper, Belgium
    During the hardcore punk festival Ieperfest we are making zines focusing on the relation between punk/music and sexism/feminism (though you can make zines about any subject you like), while eating yummy vegan food.
    Plenty of feminist zines and perzines available on the FEL stand.
