FZF PGH is a four day event celebrating, exploring, and supporting intersectional feminist voices through zines and self-publishing. We aim to create a safe space for expression and dialogue for feminist women of all races and sexual orientations, trans* and gender non-conforming people, feminist people of varying ages, sizes and abilities, and our feminist accomplices.
That is so exciting that there is now a Pittsburgh Feminist Zine Fair: what made you want to start a feminist zine fair, and how did you go about building it?
I started the Pittsburgh Zine Fair back in 2011 and over the years have been thinking about how to make it more political in the sense that I want to see more zines and exhibitors talking about race, class, and gender in the work and discussions at the fair. This year I met with women from Pittsburgh who had attended the NYC Feminist Zine Fest and were so inspired by it that they wanted to start a feminist fest here in Pittsburgh. We teamed up and made it happen!
