Trailblazing Stories

In October 2018, in celebration of the International Day of Older Persons, we gathered at Leeds City Museum with zine-maker Kirsty Fife, bringing older and younger LGBTIQ+ people together to share stories of things they’d fought for, achieved and challenged over the years. (A collaboration with Sage, the network for LGBT+ people over 50 in Leeds.)

Making Queer Zines: A Resource Guide

You can use this guide to find out about queer zines, including what they are, how to make them, and why you should make a zine of your own – with your school class, youth project or queer group. The centrefold of the booklet is a template that you can print out to make a one-page zine of your own, and at the end you’ll find on- and offline places where you can read more queer zines. (Written by Kirsty Fife; commissioned by WYQS.)
