In a personal way, zines are a way to express yourself in a way that no one needs to "approve" of. It's a form of self-publishing where you can say everything you're feeling and thinking without needing to get it through a publisher that might soften your thoughts and words. In a larger scale of things, zines are a way in which brown history is recorded. Without zines, so many voices could be lost.
The best part about making zines is the DIY attitude about making them. They're put together, printed at the school computer lab or library or print shop, hand stapled together, and set out at Zine Fests. Each zine has a bit of labor and love that went into making it.
