Women in Focus festival

I'm hosting a free zine making workshop at Poplar Union as part of the Women in Focus festival this Saturday 10th March.



We'll be making zines dedicated to our favourite women heroes, artists, activists, and fictional characters. It's free to attend and all materials are provided. There's also a bunch of really fun workshops and performances throughout the weekend for you to attend too.

I also learned that if I ever do pursue a career as a wwe wrestler that I will never be able to cut a decent promo if my excruciating discomfort filming this is anything to go by:

Queers on the edge of town


It's finally here, Me and Bruce #4 : Queers on the Edge of Town is out now!

Queers on the Edge of Town is the latest installment of my Me and Bruce zine series, chronicling my long life obsession with Bruce Springsteen.




Queers on the edge of town is a queer look at Springsteen, describing how weird it can be breaking out of the queer bubble to attend a Springsteen show as well as exploring gay teenage loneliness through Springsteen lyrics. The zine also imagines Bruce as the hot butch girl of my dreams, but most importantly documents the history of Bruce and Clarence Clemons making out.

Originally this zine started life as draft version of my chapter in the book Bruce Springsteen and Popular Music which came out last year. The zine is way longer than the original chapter and goes into more detail, as well as including a 6 page comic set to the lyrics of Backstreets, and lots of other copyrighted lyrics and images which wouldn't have fit in my book chapter. 

You can also get a special edition of the zine which comes with a 4 postcard set and pull-out poster of Bruce and Clarence making out. 


You can find the rest of my Me and Bruce zine series in my zine shop, or come find me at Glasgow Zine Fest in April.
