Latest in the Fresh Blood series, we find out more about Singapore’s inaugural Queer Zinefest, a celebration of zine-making, queer art, and queer people, taking place on 14 July 2018 at Camp Kilo Charcoal Club. Beyond being a showcase of queer zines and zine-makers, the programme also features workshops, performances and other fun, family-friendly activities. ArtsEquator learns more about this first-of-its-kind project from Gabbi Wenyi Ayane, one of the four members of the organising team comprising slam poet Stephanie Dogfoot, illustrator Joy Ho (who has also previously contributed to ArtsEquator!) and performer and arts manager Akansha Aether. We also discuss what it means to be a queer event and the highlights and challenges of organising a queer programme in Singapore.
