Zine stars and straight white dudes.

16 Dec

The incomparable Jami Sailor has written a great blog post about the Chicago Zine Fest’s Aaron Cometbus and Al Burian lecture. I personally was hoping for a Zine Prom.

You can read it here: http://yoursecretaryisout.wordpress.com/2010/12/16/current-frustrations/

Mimi Thi Nguyen and other rad punk academics have also written on similar topics, such as the ways in which punk communities reproduce themselves as white.

See you at the Fest,
❤ JB

    just so you know, there is still a zine prom (listed as the zine (in)formal… there were worries that “prom” might be alienating to many folks 🙂

      Yes! I didn’t know that but I am now very excited. When is it? I need to make sure I book my train tickets in such a way as to not miss ANYTHING.
