hat genius 25

Hello, I made a new poetry zine: hat genius 25.  I wrote the poems slowly over the months, mostly when Ming and I still lived in Las Vegas.  There’s a new one called “trans” that I wrote a week or two ago, I think somewhere in California. More recently I finished the zine’s first poem… Read More »

protection

I made a new mini-zine–it’s called Protection.  It’s one legal size paper folded up, with words in the middle also. I’ve had great feedback about How Not to Domestic Violence Anyone.  So I realize these small ones can be very meaningful, even though they’re funsize.  I’m happy to experiment with what works and how I… Read More »

Lavender Witch

I’m so happy about this band Lavender Witch.  I’m zine friends with one if its members.  This video is beautiful.  I love the “you think you’re so much better than us” part.  It makes me feel strong in who I am. “Not My Sister” is addressing TERFs, I think.  Or just anyone who says they’re… Read More »

witch problem

“Hey, honey.  Can you advise me on this witch problem I have?” I asked. “Sure,” Ming said. “Ok, so I was thinking.  I should get a tortilla.  Then I can write something on it and bury it in the ground, and it wouldn’t be littering.” My recounting of this conversation is accurate, but the ideas… Read More »
