Bamboo Girl
www.bamboogirl.com

A kick-ass multisubcultural zine focusing on Filipino culture, Bamboo Girl is filtered and organized by the ardently feminist sensibility of its editor, a queer-but-married New York City-dwelling Filipina mestiza.

The Match!

Fred Woodworth’s been doggedly producing this incendiary anarchist journal since long before the Ruckus Society made headlines. It’s ranty and outrageous as any political zine, but it distinguishes itself both by its meticulous research and its remarkable reach.

A journal of ethical anarchism.
