The Rizzeria’s Zine Club is back with a Halloween Edition on Saturday, Oct 26. Sounds like they’ll be a great discussion on American cultural imperialism in relation to an Australian zine culture, as well as the usual zine making and swapping.

So, when Sunday’s Zine Fair is all wrapped up we’re all going to be heading over to the launch of NINETY9 by Vanessa Berry. I can’t wait to see what her 1996 bedroom looked like. I’m guessing lots of sticky tape, blue tack and magazine cutouts. Hope to see you all there. And don’t forget — NYWF / TiNA Zine Fair!! Be there or be square.
Fucking Trans Women: A Zine About the Sex Lives of Trans Women was a 2010 e-zine detailing “a variety of information, from sex education, to biological diagrams, to descriptions of hot sex. There’s a even a guide to muffing, a unique sexual practice you won’t find written about (let alone documented and guided through step by step) anywhere else.” 3 years later and it’s finally available in print!
“I’ve read a lot of zines in my life, and I’ve enjoyed most of them. I don’t know if I can honestly say that any one zine has impacted my life as much as Fucking Trans Women #0. It was put out in October, 2010 by Mira Bellwether. Fucking Trans Women has had a massive impact on my understanding of what queer women’s sexuality could look like in general, and a glimpse of the potential for my own sexuality as a queer trans woman.” – Miriam Kennedy Nadler
