Sweet Candy Press is publishing my twenty year zine anthology! Visit the Indiegogo site to find out how you can support this project. And feel free to share the link with anyone who might be interested. Thank you!

celia perez (of I Dreamed I Was Assertive + about a million other zines) is a badass who has been doing this zine junk for TWENTY YEARS. support her work! order this anthology!

Zine anthologies rule. A thing does not need to be big and shiny and professionally printed to have gravitas in my accounting, but whenever I see someone who makes zines putting out a book, I still feel a bunch of weird joy and pride about it.

I’m hosting the Sept meeting of the CHIPRC Zine Zine Club! We’ll be talking about Deafula #7 & Motor City Kitty #23 (which means conversations about things like accessibility + community + support + friendship, hell yeah). Bring some rad zines you’ve read lately to talk up, too!
Grab a copy of the zines through Stranger Danger or Quimby’s!
Wed Sept 10 // 7pm // 858 N. Ashland // See you there

CHICAGO!!! REMINDER! this is Wednesday!

Dudes, please, just leave us alone.

When someone tells you that their ex-boyfriend’s uncle’s mother’s best friend from college was deaf..

When hearing people realize some deaf people can talk…

Hi! I made this little guide thing because I’ve noticed throughout high school and college that students, including myself, with disabilities often have trouble with teachers that use PowerPoints. Many people do not know how to make an accessible PowerPoint.

Having an accessible PowerPoint benefits everyone! Not to mention, it is a right protected by (Federal and State) law that people with disabilities have accessibility to electronic documents. So please, after reading this little guide, I HIGHLY encourage you to do some research on how to make electronic documents accessible (especially if you are a teacher or college student). Accessible documents do not only apply to PowerPoint, but Word, Excel, and a countless number of other programs.

I want to mention one thing though: I broke a big rule that I didn’t include on my little guide. Try to keep eight or less lines of text per slide. Each line should have less than ten words. I broke this rule because Tumblr allows only 10 photos for photosets, so I couldn’t break the text up anymore. I’m really sorry. :(  Also, this is not a be-all and end-all guide! I seriously encourage you to look into making any and all documents more accessible (go on YouTube, there is a ton of great tutorials).
