Swallow Your Pride is a zine published in New York City, NY, U.S.A. by Kathryn, Mattilda aka Matt Bernstein Sycamore and Scott.

"How's your gag reflex?", the editors ask in the introduction to issue 2. Two issues of this zine were released in the late 1990's to commemorate Gay Shame. The editors further state in their intro, "We are ashamed of Chelsea homogeneity, "community" as a corporate target market, giuliani in the "pride" parade, foaming-at-the-mouth praise for anti-feminist "pro-gay" beer advertising, and reactionary "we're just like you" gays and lesbians who ally themselves with straight, racist conservatives." The zine is subtitled, "a queer hands-on tool for do-it-yourself activism".

Contributors included Joneil Adriano, F.A.G. (Feminist Action Group), Jane G., Andrew Horwitz, Jonnie, Ananda LaVita, Andrew McCarthy, Alex McClelland, Abe Miner, Tim Murphy, Chris Ohnesorge, Robert Siek, Bwuce Thmith, Rachel Walsh, and Erin Wendt.
