aaminah: i want to support marginalized voices speaking/writing about marginalized issues. maia did a lot of research and i was suprised when she reported that there aren't any women of color/genderqueer centered distros, less than a handful woc-run distros, and that she couldn't find a single distro that sold zines talking about the things we talk about. there wasn't a single distro out there whose submission pages gave reason to think they'd ever distro the kind of zines she writes. or that i might write myself. which means that they wouldn't distro the kind of zine i want to read.
