Fix My Head #3: Rad Punx of Color I met the amazing Anna Vo on #raceriottour and fell in love with her and her zines. FMH #3 is a an interview based punk zine with a few other essays about racism, sexism and other articles related to anti-oppression work. This zine focuses on Rad Punx of Color and their thoughts and opinions pertaining to race and the punk zine. I found the interviews to be profoundly inspiring and validating. Knowing that there are other Punx of Color working towards a more diverse and supportive scene. Interviews with: Cristy C. Road, Osa Atoe, Kaila Stone, Mariam Bastani, Mimi Thi Nguyen, Atiah, Daniela Capistrano, Steph Phan, Chris Zizzamia and Stono Caves.
Fix My Head #2: the LADY issue This issue talked to women in hardcore. About their journeys, feelz, politics, opinions, views on tokenism, and their experiences playing and touring. Awesome conversations herein.

Fix My Head #4:critical thinking / free expression / punks of colour forever Fix My Head delivers another moving interview zine! Co-edited with Osa Atoe of Shotgun Seamstress FMH creates a space for Punx of Color to have discourse about Punx of Color histories, cultures and scenes internationally. This zine uncovers all that has been buried about Punx of Color histories and scenes. My favorite interview is with Taquila Mockingbird where she discusses the early days of punk in L.A. This zine is packed with interviews and more essays making it a punk rock dream come true. Interviews with: Taquila Mockingbird, Golnar Nikpour, Mars/Aye Nako, Melying Pot Massacre, Daighila and so many more!
Fix My Head #5: Radical POC I love the introduction Anna Vo writes for this zine. Anna writes about immigrating to the United States and the impact it has on her. She questions why she continues to make this zine and other zines. “I am trying to remind myself what I wanted to achieve with this zine in the first place. And here I will state it clearly and transparently. I wanted to use “popular” culture as a window to radical politics. I wanted people to pick up this zine who might not have previously been interested in radical thought, and through the lens of punk or DIY or hardcore or other more accessible mass culture, be exposed to important work people are doing all over the world.” And just that is achieved! Anna creates a beautiful platform for radical folks to share what they have been doing to fight back and create something better for themselves and others. Interviews include: Sara Rene from Native Punx Unite, Cynthia Nishi from Despise You and Gasp, Truth Sarita, Ursula Stuart from Black Queen, Texta Queen, Aborted Society Records, and Brown Recluse Zine Distro (HAAAY!)
