Hamilton Feminist Zine Fair is coming up on Saturday, November 7th!
We’re featuring some of the cool peeps that will be tabling at the event.
Here’s Lovestruck Prints:
Feminism and portraying queer experience is at the core of my work as a gay women. I focus on making images of strong women who inspires me to be more of myself, in different ways, either by being sensitive, unapologetic, crazy, owning their sexuality, bossy, girlish, tomboy, or, well, really just whatever they want to be. I find it refreshing and liberating and I guess I just want to share that with the world. I also find it important to illustrate non hetero-centric relationships in order to balance things out in a culture of heteronormativity; also as an attempt to be seen and for others queer feminine folks to find images they can relate to.
The Hamilton Feminist Zine Fair, organized by SACHA, celebrates and creates spaces for marginalized groups to have discussions about feminism through do-it-yourself publishing.
We’re aiming to create an accessible event that gives a platform to those often under-represented in zine culture.
HFZF will have people tabling, selling and chatting about their zines, workshops, a calm chill out space and a six hour zine challenge.
When: Saturday, November 7th from 11am to 5pm
Where: YWCA Hamilton – 75 MacNab Street South, Hamilton ON
Accessibility: The space is accessible, including washrooms. Here’s some more information about safe(r) spaces at HFZF.
