Los Angeles Spoonie Collective
Zines not only provide the ability to share ideas with like minded individuals throughout the world, they first serve as a healthy, creative, and constructive tool for processing ones own thoughts and feelings. Both are particularly helpful for understanding, connecting with, and expressing ones identity. Self-identity is something that needs to be discovered and nurtured both in solitary reflection and with others who share a similar experience.
Zines provide us with a most precious and rare commodity, the ability to share some intimate and vulnerable parts of ourselves with one another on our own terms. Such honesty and earnestness are fertile grounds for growing and sustaining friendships and an audience of readers who crave connection, solidarity, and community. This is why zines have lasted the test of time.
