I have always loved making art but had never found a medium that called to me until zines. Zines are have been a welcoming experience because they are so free and unrestrictive that everything you make, as long as you get it out there, is acceptable. I started Zine Verguenza to allow other people the chance to express themselves, be read, feel visible and take space.
Zines and zine fests have allowed us to connect to other artists, meet new people, and network to create new and exciting collaborations! It has allowed me to have a safe space to be myself and express my feelings. Now I understand that being vulnerable is key to connecting to others. Seeing how other people connect with what we publish makes us feel less alone.
