Queer poetry and prose. I write about being a queer person of color in the punk and hardcore scene. My poetry tried to capture the experiences of being a loner, a hopeless romantic, and someone looking for a place to belong. My poetry is journey towards discovering my place in this world.

When did you start making zines ... and why?

I started making zines after a friend of mine suggested that I begin publishing my work. I’ve always had an interest in writing but I never had the confidence to share my work. I decided to begin sharing after I realized that my voice was important and needed to be heard.

What is your biggest challenge in making zines?

My biggest biggest has always been gathering the confidence to keep sharing my work. I often doubt myself as a queer writer because we live in a heteronormative society that doesn’t always value our creativity. I always have to keep pushing myself to keep sharing my work. If I don’t it, no one else will.

What advice would you give to someone who wants to start making zines?

I would tell them to let go off the fear of judgement. Think of a theme first and then start writing/gathering material. If you are gonna be publishing your work, you should edit it a few times. Let it sit in your computer then come back to it. If you still love it, then the zine is finished and you can start publishing.
