Zines

Queer Relationships Zine

 

This is a zine offering a set of questions that it can be useful to ask about our relationships whether or not we see ourselves, or our relationships, as queer.

The zine takes as a starting point the idea of queer, and the different possible meanings of that word. Then it applies those different meanings to relationships to ask the question ‘what does a queer relationship look like?’ Particular it explores the cultural acceptability of different kinds of relationships, different relationship labels, the idea of relationships being on multiple dimensions, and what it’s like to shift from the question of what relationships we have, to how we do them.

Staying With Feelings Zine

 

This zine is all about why it’s important to cultivate the capacity to stay with our feelings, and how we can go about doing that. Hopefully working through the zine will help you to figure out your own emotional landscape (which feelings you tend to prefer, and which you tend to avoid). It’ll also give you several possible practices for learning to stay with your feelings. Different things work for different people so it’s all about figuring out what works best for you.

The Consent Checklist

 

This zine provides a checklist that you can work through when considering how to do anything – sex, a social event, work, a relationship – consensually. It explores and unpacks the key elements needed to ensure that people are freely agreeing to something, that they can tune into their wants, needs, limits, and boundaries and feel safe-enough to express them to others concerned.
