Wild, Weird, and Wonderfully Queer
Wild, Weird, and Wonderfully Queer is a children's 'zine that focuses on examples of gender nonconformity, unconventional family structures, and gay relationships in the animal world. It is wholly inspired by a recent conversation with a professor (and father) who did not believe such relationships are present in nature. Another inspiration? Reading Judith Halberstam's The Queer Art of Failure and realizing that March of The Penguins lied. Though much homophobic discussion is centered around what is "natural," most of these discussions conveniently forget the extensive variety of relationships in nature. Although meant for children, I couldn't help throwing in some cheesy pop culture references so both kiddos and parents can enjoy.
Note: Some concepts have been simplified as to be appropriate for a young audience.
