I made a zine about my father, growing stronger, and my quest for a girl gang. If you’ve ever dealt with abuse and the fallout of the experience, I wrote this for you.
I wanted this zine to be about gangs; the gangs my brothers were part of, the gang I wanted for myself. In the end, it wasn’t just about that.
I hope that it helps you.
DHBYS is being published by FAIR DIG Press as it’s first release. We’re having a little party at Pop-Hop in Highland Park to celebrate, and I’d love it if you came. I’m nervous about reading in front of people, but 2o14 is all about trying new things. This is new. It’s scary. So it must be done.
Please come and say hi to Brodie (he runs FAIR DIG) and myself. We will both be so happy to see you!
P.S. I’ll also be at LA Zine Fest on February 16th, tabling with Kim Burly. We’ve got lots planned for that day. xo
