Three artists of note at Pittsburgh’s Feminist Zine Fest

“Learning Good Consent,” Fair Moans
This self-described, sex-positive collective is a great source of information for those who are looking to get down while gettin’ down with safety, consent and a little bit of kink. Tabling at FZF with a welcoming attitude, body-safe products and informative and sexy zines, like “Learning Good Consent,” this zine offers helpful tips on dating, negotiating boundaries and improving your sex life.


“Other Worlds 2,” V. Adams
V. Adams is an artist I’ve been following for a few years. I found them at the first Feminist Zine Fest and have been entranced by their work ever since. Much of their work revolves around queerness and the natural world. The signature black and white style with gold accents is eye-catching, as is the juxtaposition between the hyper realistic and whimsical elements. Their “Other Worlds” focuses on queer visions of the future and features work from a variety of other artists.


“Nsai Temko”
I’m not sure what this bright young person is going to be offering at FZF. Whatever it is, I’m very excited to see it. Nsai Temko is a poet, writer and journalist who’s going to be a senior at Propel Braddock Hills High School. Her work has been featured in PublicSource and she’s performed at The Andy Warhol Museum and Chatham University. Check out her poetry on her YouTube channel. I particularly love, “The Unmarried Weeping.” search “Nsai Temko”
