You can’t be a “real” anarchist without being a pacifist.

Posted on Saturday, May 29, 2010 in Anarchy

To be a “real” or a “true” anarchist is to oppose all forms of oppression. Violence, by it’s very nature, creates an oppressor – person with the gun – and oppressed -person without a gun-. The only way anarchism can be achieved is through peaceful transitions – not force. Violence creates more violence. Any state with a foundation based on violence can not be an anarchist state. To be peaceful, unarmed, and harmonious to other human beings are characteristic of a “real” anarchist. Anarchy and peace is “true democracy” in which everyone is given an equal voice to one another with no one being oppressed. But for a state of true anarchism to exist, it needs to be based in a community whose foundation is peace not militarism.

Queer Zine – Call for Submissions

Posted on Tuesday, January 19, 2010 in Uncategorized

I went looking for the underground – the place were queer punks, anarchists, and free thinkers hide. A place free from hierarchies and oppression. A place where people could be themselves and be accepted. I found the underground but I didn’t find what I was looking for. But, somehow along the way, I became what I was seeking. I am the revolution. I can’t be the only one. I want to find the others.


In a world treated like a machine; where everything is a commodity to be bought and sold, there lives a human who dreams of something more: community, solidarity, and connection. Can what they seek be found in such a world?


Basically, my idea for the zine is two-folds: writing of an ideal underground that doesn’t exist quite yet almost like the groundwork for such a place; a manifesto of sorts, and the journey of a person to find if such a place exists. Part fact, part fiction, and queer as queer can be.


So, what do I want from you? Poems, vegan recipes, drawings, gay shame theme material. Not looking to have it be anything beyond PG-13. I haven’t set the idea in stone yet – so it’s all just brewing. I have some jewelry designs I need to finish up this week before I start working on the zine. I haven’t decided how I am going to publish it yet – I might even make it a small book/pamphlet – maybe color if you have color works. We’ll see what comes of it.

I just read two issues of J.D’s last night from QZAP and I am fairly confident I can do an awesome job of putting together something that’s radical, queer, punk, and interesting.

Thanks! Hope to hear from someone. Don’t be shy. This could be an awesome project. 🙂
