This year at ZICS we'll have The Wendybird facilitating our zine and comic workshops, collage workshops with Brisbane Collage Club, announcements for The Golden Stapler Awards with Simon Gray, a chat about queer comics with GraphiQ - LGBT Comic Readers Group, and poetry workshops with UQ's Poetry Symposium.

All workshops are FREE thanks to your support via the Pozible crowd funding campaign. A reminder that it's still live with only a little over 24hrs remaining and around $600 worth of pledges left to fill for us to reach our goal. In other words, NOW is the time to pledge if you want to be a part of making #20ZICSTEEN happen. http://bit.ly/1WV6T53

Wendybird Makes Zines (An Lgbtiq Community Event)
Our Zine making event activity that was cancelled due to weather last month, will be on at our next event!

If you are looking for some more meaningful connections with other LGBTIQ+ people, Wendybird is the space for you!

Come along to our next event where we get hands on making zines and digital stories! Don't worry though, it's not as daunting as it sounds. We're going to make a zine that talks about our Queer Change Makers and we'd like to include some of the people that inspire you and have helped pave the way for our personal and politcial progress as a community. We'll also have our iPads on hand so people can have a go at capturing footage of the zine making process. So, have a think about the people that inspire you and bring along pictures, stories, magazines and other craft items to include in our very first Wendybird Zine!

Wendybird is a friendly and safe space for you to meet and engage with a diverse range of people. Our blackboards will be there for you to share your thoughts, and there will be opportunities to participate in some thought provoking conversations about things that matter to you.

We will be having a BBQ with beef sausages, vegetarian sausages, onion, bread, sauces, tea/coffee, cordial and water. If you have specific dietary requirements (such as gluten free, lactose free or vegan), we suggest that you bring along something that you know you are able to eat.

We welcome gold coin donations to cover the costs of refreshments and venue hire. You are also welcome to bring some salads to share if you are able, we always appreciate the yummy food that others contribute!

We would like to welcome all people in our broad and diverse LGBTIQ community to come along and spend the afternoon with us.

This is a family friendly and all inclusive event (and yes, that does mean you!).
