Please Don't Call Me a Lesbian, I'm a Freak
By: Johnnie Xel
"This is my first zine! I put it together as I was finally owning my gender-queer identity. It was a really tough decision to discuss this identity in print, but once done, I haven’t looked back.
This zine explores some of my thoughts and feelings on being gender queer. It is a compilation of journal writings, musings, and performance. When I first printed this zine, I gave a few copies away as a trade or if I just liked someone. I also sold a few copies out of hand. Then Wasted Ink Zine Distro in Phoenix picked it up. It’s become a popular item in their store.
I am so appreciative of the zine community and how we continue the spirit of the first zines by continuing to publish our works. The inclusivity, and yes, the love of creating."
