With more to be announced soon!
Instead of a crowdfunding campaign, we will be funding the printing of this anthology through pre-orders from our online shop. We’ll let you know here and on our Twitter when those get started!
One Beat Zines is a small press, DIY zine collective that operates out of our bedrooms, and so the printing of the book will be funded through pre-orders taken through the One Beat Zines BigCartel shop. The printers used will be Inky Little Fingers. All profit made from the book after printing and postage will be distributed as follows: 50% of the profits after printing and postage will go to The Albert Kennedy Trust, a charity that supports young LGBT 16-25 year olds who are made homeless or living in a hostile environment, with the other 50% going to The Feminist Library in London, who are a registered charity run by volunteers since 1975 and are currently looking for a new home due to being priced out of Elephant & Castle.
We hope you’re as excited as we are!
Julia + Sarah
