RRI5.jpgThe fifth issue of Race Revolt is out now, and the zine’s website has relaunched – posting much of the contents of earlier issues online for all to read.

Humaira Saeed set up Race Revolt in 2007, “as an intervention into the silences around race in the queer, feminist and activist communities that I inhabited”, she explains on the new site. “Although articles may not address activism or queer-feminist politics directly, many of the voices in the ‘zine can be located within these concerns,” she adds.

Issues one through four have been posted on the site, and while I’ve only had time to dip into a few pieces, it is brilliant to see this zine archived online where more people can access it.

Just to select a very few examples: ‘Brown Boy Transversations’ from issue one, ‘It’s (Not) A White World’: Looking for Race in Punk’ from issue three, and this satirical ad from issue two.

Go, read, enjoy. Meanwhile, you can buy a copy of Issue 5 and some of the back issues here.
