Reckless Chants #21: Now We Are 21 - available for preorder (zine will be completed and sent out by mid-October). $4.00 + shipping.
Between 68-76 pages (won’t be sure until all the writing and layout work is completed). 1/2 letter size.
Essays about punk/identity and punk as identity, the Persian Gulf War and how I developed my political consciousness, the 1980 film Times Square, the death of Tommy Ramone, and dealing with oppressive racist pseudo-punx/what to do when your heroes betray you. Stories about getting crushes on girls, growing up queer in a midwestern town, punk shows in Chicago and Kenosha, making out with girls at bars, diners, stick and poke tattoos, friendship, exploring the hidden places of Milwaukee, and the end of the summer. + an interview with Megan Ann Metcalf, curator of the recent LGBTQIA zine exhibit at UWM!

Also available for preorder - the Reckless Chants #21 Super Extra Fun Pack. $6.00 + shipping.
If you order the Super Extra Fun Pack, not only do you get a copy of RC 21 - you also receive buttons, stickers, a CD copy of the official Reckless Chants #21 soundtrack, and a few other fun odds n’ ends. It’s worth the extra two bucks, I promise.

All preorders will help me pay for the first print run. If you can’t preorder (or even if you can), it would be great if you could repost and signal boost this information! Thanks!
The zine will also be available for trade (to those of you who I’ve already talked about trading with - we’re still on, I’m just not putting it up for trade publicly yet) or for $$ sent by post, but not until I have completed and printed it. I’ll repost ordering info when that happens. It will also be available from me, in person, at Milwaukee Zine Fest on November 8th.
