QRL x CCCSF Zine Sharing Circle

July 9: Rachel Lau, Kaitlin Chan and J. Wu (Mixed Rice Zines) led an online sharing about how we put our WO MEN zine corner together, an event presented by the Chinese Culture Center of San Francisco! We discussed the behind-the-scenes process and power of queer friendship that fuelled QRL’s mobile library arriving in San Francisco by way of Hong Kong, Taipei, and Vancouver. The discussion was followed by a zine sharing where participants shared their zine projects and zines in progress. Visit WO MEN at CCCSF, on view until the end of 2021.
