Zine - fat queers of color - call for submissions

UCSD Cross-Cultural Center

Submit   The vision of the Cross-Cultural Center (CCC) is to empower UCSD to recognize, challenge, and take proactive approaches to diversity for the campus and the San Diego community. We strive for meaningful dialogues and context across all cultures, particularly those of underrepresented or underprivileged backgrounds. We offer supportive and educational services through art, programs, workshops, and outreach, and we welcome creative venues for enhancing social consciousness and equity. 
“Calling for Submissions! “Chubby Queers of Color!”
Hi folks! My name is Anthony and for my Student Initiated Project (SIP) through the Cross-Cultural Center, I am working on putting together a Zine that reflects the experiences of Queer folks of Color who identify as, but not limited to, Chubby, Thick, Fat, and/or Big. I am currently in the process of looking for submissions from the community about your experiences as a ‘Chubby’ Queer person of Color. The purpose of the zine is way to bring together narratives, spoken word, art, poems, self-portraits, pictures, quotes, etc. that have helped you in your process and development as a Chubby Queer person of Color.
You can submit your contributions to
Also, if you have any questions or want any more information about the project, please email me at the above email address. Thank you!
