This zine is one part of four in the Queercore series. I created these resources for the Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity (CCGSD) to teach youth & educators about the history of queer punks and their culture. The creation of this booklet was funded in part by Canadian Heritage. 'Queercore' was a term for the queer punk movement -- the 'core' coming from 'hardcore.' Queer punks created their own alternative media sharing their radical politics. 
In this zine, you can explore queercore's history and design tactics. I created the zine as a way to reflect the style of queercore and incorporate their imagery. Many of the images I include have been cut-and-pasted from other media sources, just like queer punks did with their zines. ​​​​​​​
Curious about the rest of the series? Download the history booklet, the reflections booklet, or the Queercore Today zine. ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​
Below is a shorter printable version of the zine that you can fold using one of the classic  techniques. To learn more about to fold the zine, check out my page about zine-making
