Newly Added Zines 8.12.2014
Here’s a list of the zines we added today.
You can find these and the other @1700 zines in our collection cataloged at librarything.com/catalog/clpzines.
Find them IRL here:
at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh, Main in Oakland.
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.)
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.
