Raise the Sun: A QTBIPOC Zine Workshop on Friday, April 21st, 2023 will combine the spirit of Iffy Books’s zine collection and the aesthetics of solarpunk. We will discuss our relationships with the sun across our cultures and identities. We will learn how to make our own zines to share those experiences as we imagine and realize better worlds aligned with solar embodiment. We will center the ways in which QTBIPOC are leaders in the climate movement as we exist and breathe as our radical selves.

People who identify themselves as both Queer and/or Trans and with Black folx, Indigenous folx and/or People of Color are invited to participate in this workshop. A QTBIPOC space is a step towards ensuring these resources are accessible to groups that have been historically marginalized and are disproportionately affected by climate change.

This workshop is open to folx at all levels of experience, whether this is your first time hearing the word “zine” or you’ve got a personal distro running out of your bedroom. We’ll have zine-making supplies to share, but you may want to bring your own scissors.

Based on responses to a pre-workshop survey, Iffy Books will remain open during this event. But the workshop will be for QTBIPOC registrants only.
