As a reminder of what’s so great about Philly Zine Fest, take a look at last year’s story in Philadelphia Gay News, “Creative queer culture celebrated at Zine Fest.”
Long time Soapbox-er and longer time zine creator Katie Haegele opens the article:
“When I came to Zine Fest for the first time, in 2003, afterwards I felt like, ‘Why can’t the whole world be like Zine Fest?’” said long-time exhibitor Kate Haegele of the linguistics zine “The La-La Theory” and her memoir “White Elephants.”
The article hits the history of zines and history of Philly Zine Fest, as well as highlighting exhibitors such as Elvis’s Homos in Herstory and Permanent Wave Philly, and points to a handful of zine archives across the country. Take a peek here.
