Toronto Queer Zine Fair is an alternative zine fair focusing on the radical and political history/philosophy of zines and giving a platform to those often under-represented in zine culture.
This tour is all about survival. What things do we do to survive the winter? What things do we do to survive every day? Lets share our tips, our strategies, our ways of coping, and our stories.
Maranda Elizabeth writes about mental health & illness, genderqueerosity, writing & creativity, self-care & support, and how to create a meaningful daily life. marandaelizabeth.com
Eric Levitt writes zines on the intersection of radical gayness, queerness, body fascism and radical politics.
