We’re making a zine about abortion! Why?
Abortion rights are deteriorating in the US. There is so much secrecy around abortion, and many people don't realize that someone they love has had an abortion. Sharing our personal stories of seeking abortions can help shed light on why abortion access is so important, and can help humanize the topic.
An Interview with Gorjus Doc, aka Dr. Tasha Ramsey
If you've ever seen a sexual anatomy diagram, I am willing to bet that it was based on a white person. As much as the sex-positive movement strives to combat oppression, it is still largely made up of middle class white people, and we aren't always as aware of intersectional oppression as we should be.
An Interview with Noa Bulbulz
Shortly after I moved to Jerusalem last year, I got a friend request on Facebook from a woman in Massachusetts who I had never met.

Since I'm currently staying in Jerusalem, I was curious to hear about a local art project that explores romance, gender, and sexuality, so I decided to ask them some questions!
In November, we made this “Oh God, Oh God, Trump Is Our Next President” zine making station at the local theater company Company One’s production of the feminist play REVOLT. Here are some photos of the zines people made.

It was great to hear from other feminists at Boston’s Emerging Feminist Scholar and Activist Expo. As usual, my favorite part was seeing the awesome crafts people make on the spot (there was a zine making workshop!). Lucky for you, the maker of my favorite creation allowed me to take a photo of her piece to share on this blog. Check it out!
And here’s the collage that I made:
