Jen Twigg - Tongueswell #1

Jen mostly talks about her Uncle Leslie in this zine. The family lied about how he died, saying it was cancer when it was AIDS. She pursues the truth about him and feels connected to his history as a queer person.

Anonymous - Dear Dudes

This zine contains multiple (unsent) letters from the author to men who she feels have treated her and others badly out of sexism and/or lack of awareness of their male privilege.

These zines were generously and fabulously donated by Davida Gypsy Breier, Kelly Wooten/Sally Bingham Center, and Carrie Colpitts of the Trans Oral History Project Zine Distro! Thank you, Carrie! (More to come from the Trans Oral History Project Distro, will be cataloged soonish.)

Colpitts, Carrie

It’s No Secret…You Are Beautiful

Carrie critiques a Victoria’s Secret catalog that she got in the mail and finds that the models all look the same, look sleepydrugged, are light-skinned, and are dressed unrealistically for going to work (no shirt under a suit, with 5” heels on snowboots). She lists body positive magazines and zines in the back of the zine.
