What is a zine?
A zine is a do-it-ourselves,publication. It is an independently published pamphlet or booklet that is used to spread ideas, messages, and voices. It is what we make it!

Why are we making a Texas Queer Youth Zine?
Who should submit?
If you identify as queer, questioning, trans, genderqueer, lesbian, gay, bisexual, intersex, allied, or anything in between, and you are a youth in Texas, make your voice heard!
If you are a part of a high school or middle school GSA club, your club can submit something together, or you can submit something as a member of your club.
We welcome all of the experiences and identities that exist within Texas' queer youth communities, especially voices of queer youth of color, trans and gender-nonconforming youth, queer youth with disabilities, queer immigrant youth, and queer youth from low-income backgrounds.
What should we submit?
Zines are free-form publications. They include everything from collage to poetry, cartoons to rants, how to's to manifestos, stories to chants to.... whatever you can dream up. Tell us something about you, about your community, or about making change. Share tools, ideas, visions that will be useful to other youth. Express yourself in whatever way feels most powerful or real to you!
We'll even be accepting audio, to publish in an online version -- so feel free to send your voice along, too.
Where do we send our submissions?
By email to firstname.lastname@example.org, or by snail mail to Texas GSA Network, Re: Zine, 909 E. 49 1/2 Street, Austin, TX 78751.
Include the following information:
PLEASE SEND IN YOUR SUBMISSIONS BY FEBRUARY 15, 2012
