The Mission of ABQ Zine Fest The mission of the ABQ Zine Fest is to bring zinesters in the city together— to affirm the exciting and vibrant zine culture that exists in Albuquerque, and to foster a non-competitive, queer-friendly, ethnic-rich environment of creation in written, zine form. Through an exchange of ideas, energy, skill sets, discussions and workshops, ABQ Zine Fest hopes to nourish the expansion of zine creation in Albuquerque, and to highlight the diversity of zine making.
ABQZF Safer Spaces Policy
ABQ Zine Fest is a safer space event and works to serve the entire zine community, for the enjoyment of all. We wish to foster an environment that is welcoming and free of oppressive actions, behaviors, and language. We encourage good communication, kindness as well as openness. In the spirit of good will, ABQZF will not tolerate racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, religious intolerance and all other forms of discrimination.
Sexual harassment, inappropriate/unwelcome comments and behaviors are not acceptable at ABQZF, as well as disruptive or disrespectful behavior that might cause a participant or attendee to feel distressed or unsafe. We encourage kindness, while respecting personal boundaries. Censorship of zine materials is also not tolerated. However, please do consider that ABQZF is an event open to individuals of all ages, and families. Designated ABQZF volunteers will be available to act as mediators should problems arise between exhibitors and/or attendees. ABQZF aims to peacefully resolve any conflict that might arise at the event. Anyone found to be in violation of the safer spaces policy is unable to change or address their unsafe behavior or language, they will be asked to not attend or to leave the event.
Thank you for supporting the ABQ Zine Fest in helping to keep this a safe event for our friends, family, ourselves and our community.
