Ladyfriend Zine is a biannual small-press publication celebrating female friendship of all kinds. Each themed issue showcases a range of well-curated submissions that represent how different and complex women’s experiences really are. The shoe issue, for instance, includes one woman’s story of chasing off car thieves in high-heeled boots, a piece on living in rural Madagascar without footwear, and a feature about Aimee Mullins, an award-winning athlete born without feet.
Ladyfriend periodically tours the country with readings and public workshops: Editor/Publisher Christa Donner teams up with local ladyfriends in each city to read stories out loud, play a human-sized board game with audience members, and collect words of wisdom for another of her zine projects called Free Advice.
