I will use the funds to make copies and distribute the zine far and wide. I want to put it in every info shop (activist bookstore) and zine library around North America and possibly every English speaking country around the world because many JUST. DON’T. CARRY. zines on disabilities. This zine includes:
44 pages of awesome (plus cover)
Images by basiL, billie rain, J.C. Garske, Leslie Balch & Sasha Smithy, Jessie, Burrow, & Sadie Sicko
Helium by Kristin Allen-Zito
Art Viewing by J.C. Garske
Untitled by Trouble
Handicap Nazi by Christy Leigh Stewart
Applying for Disability by Trouble
No pause, no break, no end by Meeresbande
Disability in the Movement: Including the Invisible by Comrade Canary
Acquiring a Service Dog in the USA by Morgan atunheardofsongs.tumblr.com
It’s Not You, It’s Them by Michele Kaplan

LARGE PRINT FORMAT (i.e. FULL SHEET ENLARGED TEXT) AVAILABLE UPON REQUEST.
PDF files available.
Still accepting submissions from the disabled for the next zine! Message me for details!
This Strange Instrument. Ink and photoshop, 16 x 20”.
Two Autumns Spent With Rabbits. Pen, ink and photoshop, 15,5 x 22”.
In living colour too! Buy them for $3 by emailing dontdismyability AT riseup DOT net, or buy physical copies (B&W) for $4US, $6CA, or $8INTL (Large Print or zine format).
You can also contribute more via my Kickstarter, but the money will take awhile to process and you won’t get your zine right away, so I suggest if you want to donate just tag a few dollars more onto your purchase - the proceeds go towards distro costs to zine libraries and infoshops across N. America and trying to get it picked up by a publishing company (whose names are actually lies they don’t publish zines they just distro them).
Or we can wait for a manic phase, which will probably be soon, and I’ll do it myself.
Bonus: PDF COLOUR edition of Don’t Dis My Ability!
