Today’s snail mail arrival: Todo Sobre Mi Madre zine!
Author: Rachel Casiano Hernandez!
Publish date: April 2012
Location: East Coast/Boston area
Description: “As the name suggests, this zine is ‘all about my mother. It’s a reference to Pedro Almodovar’s film by the same name, which he dedicated to his mother.
On International Women’s Day this year I started making a zine to honor my badass working class queer ally Puerto Rican mother. Todo Sobre Mi Madre is what came out of that. It includes pictures, stories about her coming to the United States, and excerpts from letters we wrote back and forth. The title is in Spanish but the rest of the zine is in English.
I hope you read this and think about awesome mothers in your life - be they your own mother(s), your partner(s), grandmother(s), sister(s), or friend(s).
16 pages, b&w, half-size.
I’m also up for trades if you have zines - let me know!”
Keywords: Puerto Rican, WOC, POC, biography, geopolitical context, identity, coming out, LGBTQ, queer

Recently we shared that Rachel donated funds to support the POC Zine Project tour. We appreciate her support and her efforts, as one individual, to support DIY culture through her zine-making as a woman of color! WOOO! <3
