Have a read of Backslash Lit’s new Issue II: Hex.
I have a new short story called ‘Glitter and Leaf Litter’ in Capricious Issue 9: The Gender Diverse Pronouns Issue!
All ten stories in this issue use gender diverse pronouns, featuring short fiction by Nino Cipri, Bogi Takács, Lauren E. Mitchell, A.E. Prevost, Cameron Van Sant, Rem Wigmore, Penny Stirling, Hazel Gold, SL Byrne, and myself, edited by A.C. Buchanan, with cover art by Laya Rose.
This week’s Bloc Feature is Deconstructed Gender: A Tried-And-True Recipe for Unwinding The Binary by Nikki Nicnevin.
The life affirming recipe has been shared by the very excellent and electric zine #EnbyLife – a zine about non-binary experiences and stories.
Also also also: I have a piece in this awesome issue! It’s called ‘Artistic expression beyond the binary’ – and it’s about non-binary creatives and artists.
Come to the launch to pick up your copy, have a drink and say hi to me! 🙂
Last night’s launch of #EnbyLife was a great success! Thank you to the contributors who made the zine possible, and to Vlada at Junky Comics for letting me host the event in her beautiful shop. 💜
Thanks to everyone’s generosity I was able to make a donation to Queensland AIDS Council/QuAC. Their mission is to enable LGBTQI+ people to improve their health and quality of life. If you want to make your own donation, visit their website.
If you couldn’t make it to the launch, there are still copies of #EnbyLife and some badges at Junky Comics. If you’re in Melbourne, I’ll also be sending copies of the zine to Sticky Institute and there’ll be some at the Junky pop up shop at Magic Johnston next month!
There’s also print and digital copies of the zine available at my Etsy shop.
Don’t forget you still have until the end of June to submit to #EnbyLife zine! Send me your art, comics, stories, poems, non-fiction, etc!
Non-binary (enby) people are those of us who don’t fit within Western society’s gender binary (male/female). Our stories are often erased (if even heard at all!). #EnbyLife is a zine about non-binary experiences and stories, with amazing submissions from local and international writers, artists and creatives.
Come to the launch to support non-binary people, local creatives and our beloved Junky Comics!
PS: there will also be an after party for those who want to get their drink on. Location TBA!
If you want to submit to #EnbyLife, have a read of this blog post. Submissions are open until 30 June!
