i think this is the best place to share my zine with the world. this blog is one of a few reason i stay connected to the internet
I am VIETNAMESE, FEMALE and HELLA GAY (also VEGAN, STRAIGHTEDGE, FEMINIST, ANTI-THEIST/AGNOSTIC and NON-PACIFIST). if you want to read a zine from that perspective, read this one, i guess.
“I wrote this zine because there is a lack of radical media that I can really truly relate to. It is glaringly obvious that this radical scene is comprised mostly of heteros, of whites, and of males. I am Asian, I am hella gay, and I am female.
Disclaimer: I wrote this for me a lot more than I wrote it for you. There is a lack of solution offering, and at the same time a lot rambling, because it is cathartic for me. Don’t assume that my aim is to educate ignorant fucks. It is not my job to be chewed up and spit out so that they can fucking evolve.
Always for the greater gay,
