Letters to Meth
Letters to Meth is a zine that was produced in 2019 in collaboration with more than 100 queer and trans meth users who live, work, or play in Toronto's queer Village neighbourhood.
A 20th anniversary reprint of Alex McClelland's Demon Seed, a scathing send up of legal and cultural serophobia and HIV criminalization.
My Queer Family on Queer Family
In this zine, I interview people I consider my queer family: my biological brother, my gay brother, my gay father, my queer power sister and my daughter. We talk a bit of ballroom, queer kinship in defiance of rigidity, violence as a family bond, colonial ways of relating and the sweaters of dead mentors.
A perzine exploring my ultimate sexual fantasy and paradox: a desire to have sex with doppelgangers of myself. Through erotic fiction and confession, this 2015 zine takes up body dysmorphia, auto-eroticism, sexual assault, disordered eating, self-love and transformation.
A zine made in collaboration with residents of Edmond Place, a supportive housing project in Parkdale. These zines, rolled up like cigarettes, are all about smoking. Some are love letters, others political monologues, others quiet reflections.
