Fucking Trans Women

Posted in Uncategorized by Dice on September 3, 2013


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 BellwetherFucking 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

Beef Knuckles have been asked to help co-ordinate this year’s zine fair at This Is Not Art and we’re looking for applicants. Call out is below and please get in touch if you’d like to apply or have any q’s. Looking forward to hearing from you all!



Once again This is Not Art and the National Young Writers’ Festival will be holding their annual zine fair in Newcastle and we’d like to invite all zine makers to be a part. It’s taking place within the weather-proof walls of NYWF HQ (299 Hunter St, Newcastle) on Sunday Oct 6, 2013.

If you’d like to have a stall please email us for an application form at Applications close on the 16th of September.

Half of the stalls will be given to those based on the strength of their application, and the other half will be handed out on a first come, first served basis. The reason we are doing this is to ensure that the fair prioritises zines/self-publishing. At the same time we want to maintain the openness and inclusiveness the zine fair is known for.  
Applicants should be aware there is a $15.00 stallholder fee that will cover public liability and give you membership with Octopod Arts Association.

Please forward this to all your friends/family/networks and check out our Facebook call-out for more info. We can’t wait to hear from you all!
