Khristina Acosta is a mental health worker and caretaker living in central New Jersey. A co-organizer of C.L.I.T. Fest New Brunswick, she is interested in making people of color (POC) more visible in the punk and DIY scenes. Her zine will be about how a string of disappointing romantic situations have convinced her to be non-sexual with anyone until January of 2013. Although these disappointments were the catalyst, it will also deal with issues of consent, boundaries, mental health, family history, failed polyamory, and both internalized misogyny and white suprematism. Overall, what it means to be a sex-positive feminist while figuring out how to unlearn your oppressive and unhealthy habits. An avid reader of zines, this will be her first zine coming to fruition and not just floundering in Google Docs.
An update on the Fight Boredom Zine Residency: Bri, the first-ever participant, completed her zine in June and information can be found here. Teresa, the August resident and Lacy, the September resident (whose projects are outlined here) both had to cancel due to having found jobs. If and when Teresa’s zine is finished, it’ll be in stock at Fight Boredom Distro, and we’re hoping to have Lacy here next spring / summer. We weren’t able to find a replacement August resident on such short notice, however, we talked to our second-choices for the residency and are so happy to have Khristina coming to stay with us at the Tulip Farm for two weeks! She’ll be here from September 26th – October 10th. Subscribe to this blog and ‘like’ Fight Boredom on Facebook to keep up with all the latest scoop.
