CALL FOR SUBMISSIONS FOR A YET-TO-BE NAMED ZINE FOCUSING ON ACNE/SKIN/BODY POSITIVITY!
subtext: I can’t even name myself how the hell am I going to name a zine jeez
I’ve been having some recent conversations surrounding what body posi movements have accomplished and what they are lacking with folks I care for and one common experience that we brought up was a general lack of representation of what we/our parents/our culture bluntly refers to as “bad skin”; the logical step forward from this seemed to be “hell, let’s compile a zine about it”.
I think the content for this zine in both form and content should be open ended. Photographs, stories, poetry, collage, comics, quotes etc. are totally welcome. In the aforementioned bud talks, we generally agreed that our relationship with our skin was, well, complicated. So you are hardly required to frame your experience with yours in an entirely positive way to contribute. All in all, this project is shakily aiming at uncovering visceral and emotional feelings that we have been convinced to cover at one point or another.
