New Zine Call!

Hello everyone! The Feminist Comic Network wants to create an anthology zine and we would love to receive your applications! <3

The topic is “gender hope”!

There is so much backlash against progressive gender comprehension going on in the world right now, so we thought it’s time to put some positivity out. We all definitely need some hope at the moment. GENDER HOPE - We are curious what your creative minds will create with these two words in mind! Stories can be fictional or real life experiences. And yes, your story matters, your story deserves to be read. Tell us the story of how you realized your gender, your gender heros and role models, your hopes, your dreams, your thoughts and feelings. Gender hope can be seen in the tradition of hope punx, creating futures and hope despite oppressive systems (/cistems) and telling about moments of gender euphoria. A world without gender norms and boundaries is possible, it’s within our reach. We can build that world, first with our stories, then in our dreams and finally in the physical world.
