Queer/Trans Zinefest

Hey friends!  I’m going to be tabling at the Queer/Trans Zinefest this Saturday, June 17th in Providence, RI!  And I’ll be bringing a brand new mini with me, even though the universe conspired against me all week >:O  Suspension is a sci-fi one shot comic about four construction workers in an environmentally-friendly corporate dystopia, which I originally wrote for Symbolia magazine in 2015.  Now after some editing and design work(and several fun car breakdowns), Suspension is finally in print for the first time ever!

Come to town for Providence Pride, and come on upstairs to say hello to me and all the fantastic local and visiting artists in the show C:  Check out  @qtzfest​ for the full list and surrounding events. I’ll be there with free Sasha Velour postcards and showing off my wooden stands my dad made for me!  Suspension will be up on my online store for purchase after the show. 

Location:

  • AS220 on 95 Empire Street, Providence RI 02903 (downtown), in the Psychic Readings and the Aborn Gallery.

Youth Pride Inc. would like to celebrate International Trans Day of Visibility and all of our amazing trans-identified youth and staff!

Trans Day of Visibility was started in 2009 to increase positive representations of trans people and celebrate trans lives. It has become an international event held every year on March 31st. This year, YPI youth members and staff are participating by sharing their selfies on social media to show that we exist and we’re here for other trans and gender questioning youth.

YPI provides many services for trans young people (ages 13-23) in Rhode Island including: information and resources about social, legal, medical, and non-binary transition; help with name/gender change paperwork; assistance accessing transition-related items; one-on-one counseling; referrals to trans-friendly providers, and workshops and events on trans/gender topics. Not to mention Gender Spectrum, YPI’s group for trans young people. Gender Spectrum meets every Tuesday from 4-5pm, provides a space to hang out, talk about trans issues, and eat snacks!
