We're starting off 2018 with the release of the third issue of From The Punked Out Files of the Queer Zine Archive Project. This issue combines the research of two summers of zinester-scholar-artist-librarians-in-residence at QAZP. It's 56 pages of writing, thinking and analysis about queer sex zines, queer diy comics, POC zines, zine events, solar eclipses, road trips and frozen custard.
From the introduction:
If nothing else, this zine reflects one of the things that we excel at at QZAP, which is building community and friendship networks through queer zines. The vast majority of folks who do research and play in the archive start out as friendly strangers. After a week of reading, writing, chatting, cooking shared meals, watching Daria reruns, rocking out to queercore and eating frozen custard they become part of our collective logical family of smarty pants. And we love it that way.
This issue features work from Kai Linke, Dianne Lauerta, Alana Kumbier, Rachel Miller, Maggie Galvan, Jennifer Hecker and QZAP co-fournder Chris Wilde. Please conside picking up a copy and supporting QZAP and all the awesome research that comes out of our residency project.
