http://www.facebook.com/MetroSam the lovely and talented Sam is going to be doing an interview for us in issue two of Just a Bit Radical. Excited? So are we! ♥ ♥ You might know Sam from his amazing Genderbread Person that went viral on Tumblr: http://bit.ly/IsnrcO
Also, an interview with April Ashley, an amazing woman and a pioneer of MtF/trans* rights. We’re so humbled to be speaking to her, we can’t even begin to tell you all. If you want to learn more about April before the ‘zine goes live, visit— http://www.april-ashley.com/
We’re also going to be talking with the founder of the Genderreel Film Festival, a trans*/gender-variant/etc. film fest in Philadelphia. http://genderreelfest.com/?page_id=32 — Know some filmmakers that have made a work about trans* issues? They’re looking for submissions, so drop it like it’s hot!

Are you a member of the GLBTQ spectrum, or a straight ally? Do you want to get your voice heard on topics such as advocacy, sex, gender identity, stereotypes, GLBTQ youth in mainstream media, and more? Just a Bit Radical is looking for submissions that fall into their first theme: ‘Silence’ Whether you submit a piece of artwork, an article, or a poem–It’s all welcome.
The zine will be published monthly online, and quarterly in print to the New England area.
For some ideas:
How has the media ignored GLBTQ youth today?
If we don’t come out, who will?
How non conformist gender identities are ignored and made to feel invisible by society
Why speaking out can save lives
What I wish I could say to _________
Draw an image that represents GLBTQ silence to you
The world is your oyster!!

Submission Deadline: 4/15/2012
