The girl power zines to read this month

I created Sister when I was in my third year of university – it earned me the worst grade I ever received in my time there. I was completely crushed because I felt like my tutor was criticising me as a person, I’d poured so much of ‘me’ into it. I still remember the comments he wrote, one of which was “no girl would ever buy this magazine.” However, in 2012, the summer of my graduation, it got picked up by the Tate Modern bookshop due to another freelance piece I was working on. I wanted to create a cool, fresh publication for young women that I felt had been missing whilst I was growing up. CHAMP Magazine. Girls Get Busy. Mollysoda: “Story of my Life” is now live!

the zines you need to know about now

In September 1980, i-D founder, Terry Jones, took his designs to a printer's shop on Portobello Road, and, with two shakes of a lamb's tail, the first issue of i-D materialised. Putting punk into print, i-D was a fanzine dedicated to counter culture, anti-heroes, trailblazers and trend sitters. It was unpolished and unapologetic, with its rough around the edges, DIY aesthetic being the ultimate fuck you to the glossy lifestyle magazines of the time. Fast-forward to today and the zine remains a powerful icon of the counter culture, although it now comes in many different forms, and these are the ones you should be reading. The queer zines that should be on your radar. The first of a new zine series, each month we ask an influential member of the zine community for their picks of the best publications on the self publishing scene I got involved with the zine community five years ago, when I made my first zine Make It Work, a fat positive fashion and craft zine featuring tutorials, and personal writing on class and bodies.

The queer zines that should be on your radar

Through tabling at many rad zine fairs like Queer Zine Fest London, North West Zine Fest and DIY Cultures, I’ve made friendships and accessed strategies, solidarity, support and methods of resistance from so many radical zinesters. Since then I’ve made personal zines about queer femme identity, self-care, mental health, abuse and class, with my most recent project being organising the newly founded Weirdo Zine Fest in London. ‘The Nova Revolution’ from Riposte #5 - magCulture.

How young were you when you started writing? Riposte: A Smart Magazine for Women. 'Creamer' Is London's Funniest Trashy, Gross-Out Art Zine. Photos by Holly Rae Jones, styled by Malak El Sawi Launched last week in an underground urinal in Kennington, Creamer takes toilet humour to a whole new level. With a "Girls on the Toilet" photoshoot and an article titled "The Devil's Lettuce Turned Me into a Shit-Slinger", you could be mistaken for thinking this a scatological fetish magazine. In reality, Creamer is a self-styled trashy magazine started by seven girls tired of art-school pretentiousness. ​Ladybeard Is the Feminist Glossy Mag Talking Real Sex For Everyone.

Hollywood swoons for the male entrepren-asshole. The epic of the coarse young man chomping at the venture capital bit is our generation's bildungsroman of choice. We love our Zuckerbergs and Jobses and Musks, and our films mythologize these men into characters even more irreverent, ruthless, and cruel than their real-life counterparts.

What is it that we love about the entrepren-asshole, this paragon of egomania and excessive bro-courage? Maybe we're drawn to the idea that in order to be truly successful, we'd have to give up on kindness and put generosity on hold, shave off all our human concerns and cut out our close relationships, to focus single-mindedly on the target of wild success. We like a touch of evil to our self-proclaimed geniuses.

Enter Joy. Joy is loosely based on the story of Miracle Mop inventor and OG entrepreneur Joy Mangano, and the opening epigraph reads "inspired by the true story of daring women...
