Hairy Femme Mother Zine

Hairy Femme Mother – Issue Two

Hairy Femme Mother #2 is edited by me and is a submission-based zine featuring queer femmes, femmes of color, black femmes and trans femmes talking about the personal politics of body hair. Some contributors include Jade Phoenix Martinez, Jaliessa Sipress of Obsidian Moon Astrology, and more. Issue #2 is $5 and available at my Etsy shop.


Hairy Femme Mother – Issue One

I wrote Hairy Femme Mother because I am a hairy femme. I wrote it to help make space and claim my complicated history with body hair while being a light-skinned femme Chicana. There are some stories about growing up hairy, about being shamed for my body hair by white cis men as an adult, and how I have learned to love all the many hairs on my body, whether I choose to remove them or keep them. I also talk about body hair as a political statement, feminist resistance & the dangers that can present for femme presenting people of different genders.

I sell Hairy Femme Mother #1 on my Etsy site for a sliding scale fee of $1-2. If you can pay more, please contact me and let me know. If you can’t afford it, please contact me and let me know that too. If you’d like to carry either issue in your distro, please contact me.
