Retoño: Issue 2 – A Zine on Preservation of Environment, Culture, & Self (QTPOC Look Book)

by Mariposx

Library Location: F26

Retoño is a bilingual collection of musings, poetry, graphic art, sketches, playlists, recipes, and self care tips. The content is from the perspective of a queer brown body and how that body navigates change and preservation. Issues are released monthly with new content.
Retoño translates to “flower bud” in Spanish. This zine is an effort towards nurturing new ideas, sentiments and the vulnerable parts of ourselves that often go without being celebrated. The April edition includes a QTPOC Look Book themed “QTPOC in Bloom” where queer and trans people of color exhibit their favorite spring styles.
