Portland Zine Symposium and Updates!

Portland Zine Symposium was a blast. I tabled with Ari ( La Bola de Cristal and Maximum Rock and Roll) my partner in crime and the lovely Anna Vo (Fix My Head, The Swan &the Vulture). I got to spend time getting to know my favorit zine writers and distro owners and made a bunch of new friends! Two days of zines and amazing people! I am so full of inspiration and motivation.

An unfortunate side effect of the PDX Zine Symposium is that a lot of zines are out of stock. Over the next week I will busy at re-stocking the distro with the usual and fresh zines! I will also be updating the site with links to rad projects and friends of the distro as well as an FAQ. If there are any questions you would like answered or a link that you think that I should include feel free to send em via email.image

Free Zine(s) for Pride!!!!

In celebration of PRIDE season BRZD will include “Queens, Hookers, and Hustlers”(some Pride History for yer ass!) for free in every order that comes in between now and June 30th. Also remember that all snail mail orders come with a free zine cuz I like mail better than the internet. If your snail mail order is postmarked before or by 6-30-14 I will include both! Thanks for the support! Happy Pride and don’t forget to honor Trans Warrior Queens who have brought us this far!

Marya is a rad lady who is starting
The Pamphleteer Project 
and you should help her out:

HI! MY NAME IS MARYA— I’m the founder of ABQ Zine Fest, (now in its 4th year) The Albuquerque Zine Library, and a co-founder/curator of The Tannex, a DIY performance clubhouse, in this outpost, in the high desert of New Mexico. I love my creative community, and I do a lot to support and nurture it. I’m asking for your support as I embark on a new project that expands my love for zines, self-publishing, and storytelling …
THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECT MISSION: to help diversify existing zine collections, or help establish new ones by presenting women/feminist focused, people of color influenced, gender-inclusive zines and comics to groups and collectives around the world.
YOUR CONTRIBUTION TO THE PAMPHLETEER PROJECTwill help me get to Sweden to present a pop-up zine library and free workshops at the TITWRENCH Stockholm Festival— a women’s music festival. The fest was founded in Denver by Sarah Slater in 2008. TITWRENCH Stockholm is the first satellite of the original fest. After the event, I will donate 100-200 zines to a collective in the city. 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
YOUR GENEROUS FINANCIAL SUPPORT will:
Cover airfare to Stockholm.
Pay for simple materials to set up the zine library. 
If we surpass the goal of $2,500, this will allow me to take this pilot program and expand its reach to other collectives within the punk/zine community and beyond. Someday, I imagine this project being able to support other zinesters interested in delivering zines to groups and communities.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
WHY STOCKHOLM?
To spite our perceptions of Sweden being a utopia, The country is more diverse than the media reflects. Along with the changes to this nation comes unrest. Last year, Stockholm experienced 5 days of rioting.  On March 8th of this year, an act of fascism in the form of a knife attack occurred on the night of International Women’s Day, injuring several women taking part in a Reclaim the Night demonstration. These are acts of violence, but they are also acts of ignorance. The Pamphleteer Project supports the independent voice by presenting diversity as a means of and solidarity with local communities striving for peace through mutual acceptance. 
…………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………….
WHY ZINES?
I know zines to be a form that can open pathways to self-expression when other avenues are blocked, guide people through difficult conversations, and fuel strong political actions in communities through the power of the independent voice. Most importantly, zines can connect us to the human intimacy of storytelling.
……………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………
OTHER WAYS YOU CAN HELP:
+ Due to time constraints, and optimum ticket-buying, please donate to the project via paypal. I know, I know… your donation via credit card is also appreciated!  
+ If you can’t contribute $$ please donate ZINES that fit the criteria mentioned in the project description. Please email me at thepamphleteerproject at gmail dot com to find out where to submit your zine! 
THANK YOU!
