#6: so far and specific call outs

Girl Love 6 is shaping up to be full and varied, with topics including: the difference between self-care and self-soothe, fandoms and identity, See Red Women’s Workshop and how we raise awareness of issues today, how to make protest materials, …

Please don’t read the list and think these are the only submissions Girl Love #6 needs. There is no theme, only the broad ethos of the zine – so get in touch with your ideas!
Below are more specific requests for contributions, for those who want to be involved but would like a bit more direction.

 PLAYLISTS

Girl Love will feature 2 playlists.
One will be made up of SONGS OF RESISTANCE: send in your suggestions.
The other is undecided. Let me know if you’re interested in putting something together!

CALLING ALL FANGIRLS

Inspired by this and this, Girl Love is looking for a piece about fangirls. A contributor for Girl Love #6 has already written about finding/affirming her identity through fandoms, and it would suit a companion piece.

If you have anything to say about:

  • the way fandoms can foster community
  • why unapologetic passion should be celebrated
  • the weird hypocrisy of middle aged men hoarding bob dylan merch whilst calling young girls obsessive
  • how unfair it is that girls always have to prove their love for something (“oh you like [insert band name]? Sure ok, recite their entire discography pls”, “fake gamer girls”)
