Black Lesbian DIY Fest 2014 on October 18, 2014 from 11am-6pm

Black Lesbian DIY Fest 2014 aims to offer black lesbians and allies with materials and content on or ​about black lesbians an opportunity to sell zines, chapbooks, posters, art, pamphlets, small press books or any other forms of handmade or DIY print based items. It’s also an opportunity to build community inside an institution that strives to keep alive the memories of our ancestors, our herstory, and to bring together lesbians from across communities and worlds.

The DIY Fest will feature:
Vending of print based materials such as zines, small press books, chapbooks, posters by or about self-identified black lesbians.
Various workshops and skill shares.
A raffle with prizes from participating authors, artists, and sponsors.
Tour of the Archives.
