"The Coalition Edition"

“There is no such thing as a single-issue struggle because we do not live single-issue lives.” -Audre Lorde

"The Coalition Edition" is an attempt to explore questions such as, "How can we work with our differences in new ways? How can we learn to hear one another more fully? How can we heal ourselves while also addressing systemic oppression?". In this 33 page edition, a handful of talented contributors address coalition building in diverse ways. Topics discussed include bridging the gap between academia and activism, building coalitions towards a trans* inclusive health care, discovering community through music, the complicated realities of passing, immigrant activism, and the relationship between activism and art. Perfect for any activist looking for ways to build community across difference!

DENTON, TEXAS- SUPPORT Small Town Grrrl rock/punk/jazz/hip hop/spoken word/comedy/zines/reproductive autonomy/empowerment!

In celebration of the artistic contributions of local women, we present Denton TX’s Second Annual Femme Fest. This event is intended to celebrate and honor the artistic contributions and talents of rising local female artists who are often underrepresented in their communities.

This year we are benefiting the amazing Cicada Collective, a local group of Reproductive Justice Organizers who aim to provide access to reproductive resources for local communities who do not have access to these resources such as communities of color, the LGBTQ community along with undocumented, incarcerated or criminalized people. 

This event will also be the premiere of Muchacha Fanzine’s 8th issue “Nuestros Cuerpos/Our Bodies.” If you would like to submit poetry, short stories, essays, visual art, photography, comics, rants, etc. concerning reproductive rights please email your submissions to Daisy at Riotgrrrl56@yahoo.com by Thursday, November 14th.

To donate to our event visit our kickstarter page.



“Our frustrations were built on the confusing feeling of knowing that the world is fucked up AND beautiful and we dealt with it by drowning ourselves in 40 ounces of liquid mixed with loud music that our older siblings made fun of.

Punk was a shit show, a wildly controlled, reckless, repetitive one-night stand with danger. It arrested people, it liberated people; it created enemies, it created comrades; it built fronteras, it built community.

Punk was the megaphone for my suppressed, teenage, Xicana voice. The collective voice of me and the homegirls.”
