Call for Submissions -- Zine!

I was born female and could not join the local Boy Scouts and the activities of the Girl Scouts didn't particularly interest me. I grew up not able to learn a lot of the things that boys learn -- I didn't know how to change a tire on my car until another transguy showed me how after an unfortunate tire-slashing incident. I never learned how to build fires. I never really had a boyhood, and now I'm trying to create a space for other people to maybe pick up skills that are "forbidden" to them because of their own gender and sex. Or maybe I'm just creating a space where something/someone can be both "rural" and "queer" or "radical" -- something that doesn't seem to happen that often. I am part of the Queer Scouts.Collapse )
