Features pieces about San Diego Comic Fest 2020, what it’s like to be a professor, my experiences at World Pride/Stonewall 50 in NYC, and various other tidbits.
Created for the Portland Zine Symposium 2003; I was on a Queer Zinester panel w/ Nicole Georges of Invincible Summer and Larry Bob of Holy Titclamps/Queer Zine Explosion.
Words and Smiles #3, Aug. 1993
Features interviews with Crayon, Molly Neuman of Bratmobile, and Unwound, among other things. Written as I was heading to college in Albany, NY.
Lots of creative writing in this issue: I was knee deep in my undergraduate work. Yes, despite the 10 year gap between WaS #3 and BF #2, I hadn’t yet finished.
Words and Smiles #2, Dec. 1992
Features interviews with Pansy Division, Sebadoh, Bill from Pop Narcotic Records, and many others. The most music focused issue of the bunch.
My first queer punk zine. At one point I had the misguided notion that gay guys needed something like riot grrrl. Interesting, but misguided to say the least. I got alot of shit for this zine in general but for this cover specifically. It’s a drawing of a Robert Mapplethorpe photo, so fuck off. Also, this reproduction doesn’t do the drawing justice.
Lots of homages to riot grrrl. Chock full of teen angst. Written at the end of my junior year of high school. This zine is about claiming some space for one’s self.
Writing Networks for Social Justice, Oct. 2017
My first attempt to bring my zine work together with my scholarly work. I put this zine together with Liz Lane, and it features a lot of work by other scholar-activists.
Another riot grrrl inspired effort. This time I got a group of high school friends together to contribute pieces about the trials and tribulations of being a teenager.
Weekly comics coming June 2020.
