Antidote Reflections on Queer Shame
by Rena Newman
8.5"x5.5", 32p, stapled
As per the publisher: "An Antidote: Reflections on Queer Shame" is an honest zine about desire, body, queerness, transness, and the often invisible and malicious feeling of shame. Queer shame is a pervasive and damaging thing, but shame changes once it is spoken or written or drawn. Healing is possible. Queer Shame is not useful. Maybe a shame zine can help. This zine is content-heavy, full of comics, writings, and snippits about queer shame. "Shame shapeshifts. It looks like other things, pretends to be rational, protective, useful. You will learn it by its opacity, by its inability to be known. It exists best in negative space, and often it needs to be exposed from the outside in order to see it in relief."
