Milwaukee: The Largest Independent LGBTQ Zine Collection is Stored in a Basement, and You Can See Some of it Online
From the The Milwaukee Journal:
“Our collection [of about 25oo zines] is made up of zines about sex, sexuality and gender. The zines don’t pull punches because they’re from folks writing about out lives,” QZAP co-founder Milo Miller said.
Miller and Chris Wilde founded the Queer Zine Archive Project – or QZAP – in 2003 by putting their personal collections of queer-punk zines in an online database. They had 350 zines between the two of them, but the collection has grown thanks to donations from people and organizations around the world.
It’s the largest independent LGBTQ zine collection in the U.S., Miller said.
