Grrrl Couch: Queer
The fourth issue of Grrrl Couch which is themed Queer (and was released physically during pride month, how appropriate). This zine contains art, photography, interviews, and everything else themed around being queer and content created by queer artists. It was created to showcase queer artists and give them a safe place to speak their mind and help get their art out there. Enjoy.
Released June 2018.
5.5 x 8.5 inches.
28 black and white pages, colored cover.
What: The riot grrrl zine you've always wanted. Each issue is themed, for your pleasure. Boasting themes of Love & Sex, QUEER, and Curl Power, this zine has got you covered. Available in printed zines, handmade from my bedroom to yours, or available online for viewing. But let's be honest, it always feels good to hold a zine in your hands while you're reading it. I'm looking at you, kindle users.
Who: Started and run by me, Ruby Rañoa. But Grrrl Couch is always collaborative, and always looking for new artists to feature. Contact through instagram, email, or by using the contact feature on this very website.
When: I released the first Grrrl Couch zine in the summer of 2017 and never stopped creating them after that. It's addictive I guess.
Where: Created in my not-so-humble hometown of Kailua, HI and traveled with me across the Pacific Ocean to Seattle, WA. This zine is wherever you are, or happen to be.
Why: Zines let you say whatever it is you want to say, and visually show whatever it is you want to show. Censorship doesn't exist in the Grrrl Couch universe.
