Pittsburgh Zine Fair Was Luscious, Again.

The fourth annual Pittsburgh Zine Fair on 9.28.2014 at the Union Project was wonderful once again. We bought zines from pretty much every local zine author that tabled at the event, which was so exciting! There is so much interesting local zine talent in Pittsburgh. We’re so lucky. Many thanks to the organizers for being such gracious hosts to us and the zine collection!

We tabled again with our comrades from Zinebot - the Roboto Project zine library. We had a zine-making table in the space.

Brandi made this zine for a class at SUNY Purchase. It’s about being a fat woman wanting to love herself and eating and sex, and wanting the same for other fat women.

Zine with cut and paste art work, handwritten notes, and drawings about love and crushes and relationships by queer teens who participated in an Andy Warhol Museum and GLCC Pittsburgh program.

This is a zine about the variety of ways that women’s vulva look, as well as about the complexity of feelings that women have about their own and others’ vulva and about sex.
