About Gears For Queers

We're Lilith (they/them) and Abi (she/they), a queer couple who make stuff (and do pretty much everything else) together. We make zines and deliver zine workshops, make art and write blogs and books. We believe in creating strong radical and intersectional community spaces, skill-sharing and in DIY and DIT (do-it-together) creation.

Our zines are (mostly) about cycle touring, queerness, fatness, vegan recipes, madness and neurodivergence. We also talk a lot about accessible toilets. We'll be sharing blogs about these things here, as well as lists of stuff we've read, the occasional rant, some video workshops, and general life stuff. 

We're on patreon because we wanted to find a way to share the work we're doing right now, in the absence of zine fairs, events, or any kind of face to face social contact....We're keeping it super simple with the membership levels. If you want access to our digital zines but haven't got the cash rn just send us an email at [email protected] This isn't an attempt to create exclusive content, or price folks out, its just an effort to make our work more sustainable and to give folks an easy way to support us (and get zines from us!) We can 100% guarantee any profit we made will just go into supporting the work of other people because circular economies are cool. We'll share our accounts on here each year I guess so you can hold us accountable to that. 

We want the stuff here to be accessible as possible, so we'll be posting readings of each zine as well as audio described read throughs!
