There was a time when gays and lesbians stood up to opression for themselves and others. When their only goal wasn't to be assimilated into a patriarchal capitalist system that allows them to pass instead of creating real change. Out Of The Closets and Into The Libraries encapsulates histories of queer social movements where we fought back, not only for queer rights, but for society as a whole. Note: the zine in the archive is presented as flats, so please feel free to download the PDF and make copies for your friends, family, and church youth group.
In light of the fact that the Michigan Womyn's Music Festival organizers have announced that this will be the last year that the fest is held, we thought it would be appropriate to highlight U.S. Kweer Corps #10, where Hank urges us to look forward, and to make our own inclusive and critical festivals and spaces.
At one time Paris Is Burning was the hottest film around. A document to ballroom culture, POC communities, drag and community building, and of course Vouging. At around the same time that came out, so too did P-Form #23. In fact, this hot zine has a review of the film from when it was first in theaters. It's also got other reviews, stories, interviews and articles to entertain and educate.
