Long Distro Description:

Brown Recluse Zine Distro was created to support and center zines written predominantly by POC folks of all identities. This project was born out of passion for zines and frustration at the lack of representation and meaningful zine material for People of Color. I scoured through zine distros with a fine tooth comb and found that just like everywhere else in the dominant culture there was a serious lack of material written by POC folks in these distros. This is not because there is a lack of zines written by People of Color, because there are hundreds of self-published works written by People of Color. My personal zine collection is full of POC zines and zines that are of interest to us.

So after many years of reading zines, writing zines and observing zine culture I decided to start a zine distro that centers our voices and presents our large contribution to zine and DIY culture. BRZD is dedicated to our struggles, our projects and our zines. Brown Recluse Zine Distro was born in the spirit of visibility and in the spirit of celebrating our cultures and inter-sectionality. BRZD exists to strengthen our ties and highlight out inter-sectional relateable experiences. BRZD is here to offer a place to locate POC zines without spending hours browsing the internet.
