Every Body Is a Modified Body

"A well-known feminist saying states, 'Silence is violence.' For many transfolks that is not true. Our voices are the part of us that are not read the way we identify. For those of us who cannot afford or choose not to take hormones, we must fear being outed every time we speak.

That's the reason for this zine. It is a space for local transfolks to write about their experiences and share knowledge without this fear. We live in a world where 1 in 3 trannies will be killed so we must create new ways to survive. It is my hope that this zine is one of them."
