Keesha and Joanie and Jane is a fictional story where, in a not-too-distant future, abortion is made illegal in the United States. Young women inspired by the work of Jane, the Chicago pre-Roe v Wade underground abortion service, get a grant to bring the original "Janes" to town to speak at their school as an excuse to talk out how to make their own underground abortion service.

Written by Portland author Judith Arcana —one of the original Janes —and brilliantly formatted like a Broadway Playbill by Eberhardt Press. The story is followed by an excellent Q+A with author Judith Arcana at the end of the chapbook.

64 pages, A5 size, full color.

In Masculinities, Cindy Crabb (Doris) explores how we're each individually taught about what masculinity is. The zine focuses on the role models (positive or problematic or often both) who guided that education and how it played out. As she says in her introduction, she wants to "shake [masculinity] up—look at all the varied ways people are taught what it means to be a man, and where they found resistance, examples of other ways to be."

Interviews with Brontez Purnell (Since I Laid My Burden Down), Colin Atrophy Hagendorf (Slice Harvester), Larry TV (Pretty Pretty), Shane Parish (Ahleuchatistas), Tomas Moniz (Rad Dad), and others.

32 pages, half-legal size. Cover art by Icky Dunn.
