Brown Recluse Zine Distro is a zine distro for BIPOC by BIPOC, we are collective run and community supported. We distribute and center Black zinemakers in our distro. Our focus is political educational materials that uplift and center QTBIPOC engaged in autonomous forms of resistance against the violence of capitalism, white supremacy, colonialism, patriarchy, and imperialism.
Brown Recluse exists to uplift the work of QTBIPOC zine makers. Since 2013, we have traveled to zine fests, taught workshops, and distributed thousands of zines by BIPOC zinemakers all around the world. We are located on Ohlone land and are the only zine distro soley for BIPOC and the only distro offering Black zinemakers 100% of the cover price to distribute their work. To make that possible we offer the listed prices in the zine distro to BIPOC only, we invite white folks and institutions to purchase zines by adding an additional sliding scale amount to their purchase. You can find that on our website under “Mandatory Sliding Scale for White Folks and Institutions”. That sliding scale keeps the distro running and pays for all our operational costs, we donate all profits to queer and trans Black folks who are in our direct communities as a form of emergency aid.
