New zines to doris distro
Encyclopedia of Doris: stories, essays, interviews
Issues 19-27 of Doris zine plus a bunch of stuff that was printed in other zines and a bunch of new writing! It will be coming out in the beginning of August!

The Papas
this zine by Spoonboy goes with the record of his band The Papas, but I got some zines separately because they are really good and important. It has a really good story/essay about cultural myths - the way masculinity is portraid and taught us; captialism, suicide, queerness and fighting back. also some ways to challenge patriarchy and reprints of really great articles "Masculinity and Homophobia, by Michael Kimmel; I Want a 24 Hour Truce During Which There Is No Rape by Andrea Dworkin; and excerpts from The Will to Change by bell hooks

Eleven Months
written by Paul who wrote the Don't be A Dick zine, Eleven Months is a zine about their "experience teaching in the jail in downtown Seattle. It is a mix of experiences, dreams, analysis, rumors, attempt to condense a magnificent, traumatic, grueling experience into something to share with others"

Without Words + Without Kneeling: the first six issues

Written by Tom of Rad Dad zine. This zine is a way to explore books about Anarchism from different viewpoints. I really love it. It's fiction - and the story is about an anarchist study group. Each charater is nicely developed and comes from different perspectives - all of which are really relatable. They discuss the books, but mostly the different ideas and viewpoints come out in their lives and realtionships with eachother. Hard to explain but cool. Books discussed include Crimethinc, Anarchism and it's Aspirations by Cindy Milstein, Pacifism as Pathology by Churchill, The Philosophy of Punk and more.

Virgin #1
This zine is about being a virgin, being ok with it, and how the rest of the world does not seem to think it's ok. It's about being queer, NOT asexual, crushes she's had, assumptions people make, and more.

Virgin #2
Contributor issue: stories and articles dealing with disability, asexuality, rape, the marketing of virginity, self-image, etc

When the Crash Meets Something Solid #008: Something Very Ugly

another installment of Gabrielles zine about time she spent in the sex industry in Minneapolis, her herion/drug addiction and recovery.
