I am so honored to be a part of Brown & Proud Press’s third issue of On Struggling, a zine entitled “Bodies”. My poetry and two of my sketches are featured among some truly powerful voices. Everyone’s stories are so moving and inspiring, full of beauty and honesty.

Brown Recluse Zine Distro
Check out this AWESOME zine distro that is dedicated to promoting and distributing zines made by People of Color! They carry issues one and two of our On Struggling series, soon to carry number three! There’s soooo many good zines to choose from!
cielito-lindo asked: Hi, hi, hi. I would like to obtain a copy of this zine, but I'm down in Texas. Do you have an etsy shop?
Hello! We currently do not have an etsy, but I believe you can order it through Quimby’s bookstore’s website: http://www.quimbys.com/store/6877 If you have run into an issue let me know, and maybe we can mail one out to you and you can just send us concealed cash or a money order. Thanks for reaching out!
On Struggling: Bodies zine release event at Quimby’s Bookstore on Friday, September 6th!
This night was beyond special and we are so grateful to have such a supportive network of friends/chosen family. We had a head count of close to 100 people, sold over 70 zines and were able to donate $400 to Project NIA, an amazing local organization based in Chicago’s Rogers Park that works to end juvenile incarceration by developing community-based alternatives.
We had the opportunity to hear readings from Jonas (Cheer the Eff Up, My Mirage/I, Mirage, Zine Crush, Rad Dad), Mercedez (fatgrrrl), and Stephanie Camba (contributor to On Struggling: Self-Care). All were incredibly powerful and raw and energizing! We also did some readings from all three of our On Struggling zines, and concluded the night with some delicious homemade burritos and other yummy donated foods.
Thanks Mayadet (Fuck Yeah, Fat Dykes) and Xavi (La Respuesta) for holdin’ down the food table, thanks to Vivi & Token for cooking the delicious food, thanks to Sarah-Ji for being the People’s Camera and documenting our event, thanks to T Cal for recording some readings that we might be able to post soon, and thanks to everyone who showed up, donated, bought a zine, and showed some love!
If you’re in the Chicago-area, you can pick up a copy of the new zine at Quimby’s bookstore. Or, you can order it online at their website!
Thanks again for everyone’s support and we look forward to hosting another zine reading event really soon!
If you are, or know of an artist of color who works in Video Art please send us an ASK.
