Biscuits & Gravy Zine
Volume 1: Love, Resilience, Possibilities
Biscuits & Gravy is a zine seeking to uplift and centralize the unique experiences of Southern Black and Brown Femmes in Queer culture. This zine aims to envision what community can look like when Black and Brown Femmes have the space to share our stories, lives, pain, love, and bodies on our own terms.
Biscuits & Gravy is a project grounded in anti-oppression, intentional solidarity, and authentic accountability in recognition of the institutional systems of power and global dominance that furthers white supremacy, colonialism, patriarchy, classism, ableism, anti-blackness, transmisogyny, cultural genocide, and various other forms of marginalization and violence.
The theme of our first issue will be “Love, Resilience, and Possibilities.” In a November 2012 interview, poet, writer, editor and educator Warsan Shire stated, “At the end of the day, it isn’t where I came from. Maybe home is somewhere I’m going and never have been before.”
Let’s envision what home can be. How will we love? How will we persevere? How do we reach a place, a love, a world, for which we have no blueprint. Biscuits & Gravy seeks submissions from Black and Brown Queer Femmes grappling with these questions, desiring transformation. Please submit works up to 1000 words. Submissions can be, but are not limited to:
poetry, fiction, personal stories
photos/selfies
artwork
collages
quotes
music
Please send your submissions for consideration to biscuitsandgravyzine@gmail.com. Deadline for submissions is May 30th, 2014.

These spectacular photographs reveal the amazingly tiny details of the life of snails. Using a macro approach, Ukrainian photographer Vyacheslav Mishchenko gets up close and personal to capture a variety of miniature landscapes as the little creatures go about their daily lives. With great patience and a steady hand, the artist obtains crisp, sharp details that seem unbelievable when viewers consider how small the scenes really are in comparison to our everyday surroundings.

The library is absolutely dead today - all the students are already home since break started on Wednesday.  So I’ve been in my office, earbuds in and listening to JCS: A Resurrection (someone, god bless them, uploaded the entire performance to youtube).  Apparently the volume is enough that I didn’t see a coworker walk in, and when I finally did, I whipped out my earbuds and was like, “Oh! Sorry. I was just listening to Jesus Christ Superstar, like ya do.”  And she was literally so surprised that she momentarily forgot what she came back to tell me.

I don’t know if this says anything about either of us, but it made me giggle.
