ABSTRACT
The article examines the lack of racial diversity in the zine culture, highlighting the compilation of zines "Riot Grrrl Special Collection" from New York University's Fales Library. It states that the lack of diversity illustrates how people of colour (POC) who create zines are considered unimportant. It adds that POCs are finding it hard to get public attention even if they provide an intimate type of communication. It also tackles the efforts of POCs to make the zine culture more inclusive.
