A downloadable zine

OUR SPACES WERE NOT MADE FOR US.

THEY WERE MADE TO PROFIT OFF OF US

TO REDUCE OUR LOVE & ART TO CONTENT.

Our Spaces Were Not Made For Us is a 48 page zine about social media, and why it kind of sucks for artists, sex workers & porn artists. It doesn't necessarily offer solutions, but we talk about the problems implicit in the medium from a queer, anticapitalist perspective.

This zine features, among other things, various artworks, a comic, an illustrated essay, and a very long rant about economics. It is by no means comprehensive, but if I feel like it and people like this I'll organise another one.

If you like this zine, or if you DON'T like this zine, make your own! If you do, email me at hexbombdoom {at} gmail {dot} com-- I want to see it.

special thanks to:

Gwah & Distressedegg for letting me use some of their artwork in screenshots.

CW: This zine features some nudity so it's 18+

It also contains a page with some transphobic twitter messages screenshotted. If you'd like to skip that page, the page before has an image of a twitter feed.

give me a seal of approval and i'll add it below:


Install instructions

The fullres file is frickin HYOOJ so i'd recommend only downloading it if you intend to print the zine out or just want to look at the pretty pictures, as it's in 600dpi whereas the scaled version is only in 300.
