New zine: YngWHO?

YngWHO? – a fanzine about growing up in the 80s, queerness, fandom, and Yngwie Malmsteen

My new zine YngWHO? talks about a lot of things, so you don’t need to be a fan or even have heard of Yngwie Malmsteen. I didn’t know who he was before last summer… (He’s a guitarist who started out in the 80s and supposedly invented neoclassical rock/metal). But because I became a fan over the summer, I decided a zine was in order and I used it to write about a number of subjects.

Even though I call YngWHO? a fanzine, it’s as much a perzine*. It’s written from a fan perspective and I write about fandom as well as about personal things like memories from the 80s and gender stuff.

What can you find in this zine?

  • all things Yngwie, including how I discovered his music, what we can learn from him, and reasons to hate him (yep)
  • thoughts about fandom and fame
  • thoughts about queerness, gender expression, and the 80s
  • film / book / zine recommendations
  • and also… a poster, a puzzle, and a paper doll! 🙂

The zine is 32 pages, in A5 format. The cover is printed on coloured paper, the inside pages on recycled paper, and it’s bound by yellow yarn.

For sale: 2 euros + postage

*perzine is short for personal zine, a zine focusing on personal/autobiographical content, while a fanzine is about (a) subject(s) that the author is a fan of, is passionate about, or simply likes a lot.
