"Issue #2 is showcasing some of the research that was done in the summer of 2015, and as this is the autumn of 2016, its di rigueur to apologize for the lateness of this publication. We were getting things in order back in the spring, and then our current summer residencies started and, well, there it is. Suffice to say that we're getting this out now, and are very excited to be doing so.
For those who are new to this zine, it is the product of the research done during our summer residencies at QZAP HQ.
For the past three summers we have invited scholars and artists to come an make use of the physical archive of queer zines. We ask them to make work for themselves, and also to contribute to "From the Punked Out Files..." as a way of further sharing the collection and enhancing all of our knowlege of the thousands of documents that have been housed at QZAP."
This issue features work from Amanda Stevens, Amber Forrester, Kelly Wooten, Jenna Bee, and QZAP co-fournder Chris Wilde. Please conside picking up a copy and supporting QZAP and all the awesome research that comes out of our residency project.
