I'm Holly Casio and I make queer zines and diy comics. I also host zine making workshops, talks, and zine related events and exhibitions.
My zines explore mental health, fat bodies, queer punk communities, popular culture, and Bruce Springsteen.
I've been writing zines since 1999. Back then I called them fanzines, because they were about the things I loved. They still are today although they've progressed from teenage riot grrrl punk zines to more personal zines and comics. I love pop culture, I love loving things, and I like writing about my own queer/feminist identity in relation to the things I love and hate.
And yeah you might also know me as the girl who writes about Bruce Springsteen. I write about him a LOT

You can find me at UK zine fairs or buy my zines in my zine shop:
As well as writing zines I also make queer punk music in my Buffy inspired diy punk band The Potentials. I also set up the UK Zine Librarians group, I dj at queer dance parties, I am a radical cheerleader, and I watch a lot of Food Network.
