2021 Artzine of the Year Award

Diaspora Daughter / Diaspora Dyke, 2020. 7×8.5″, 40 pages, 80 lb full colour.

Featuring photography, poetry, and performance, Diaspora Daughter / Diaspora Dyke is a zine that contends with intergenerational inheritance, personal histories, pleasure, loss, love, and the formation of identity through visual representation. 

Created with the generous support of Canada Council for the Arts, Manitoba Arts Council, and Broken Pencil Magazine. A reflection on Lebanese queer diaspora, this work was self-published just after the port explosions in Beirut in August 2020. 100% of profits from the zine’s launch month were donated to Egna Legna Besidet. If you enjoyed this zine, consider making a donation.
