Since 2019, TransLash Zine has been an independent publication by TransLash Media that supports our mission of telling trans stories to save trans lives. We feature uncensored art, writing, and photography by TGNC people––and we pay contributors. Our first six issues were developed and produced in collaboration with POC Zine Project, and POCZP founder Daniela “Dani” Capistrano continues to support our content and partnerships strategy as editor-in-chief and creative director of TransLash Zine.

TransLash Zine Vol. 6, released on April 24, 2023, is a companion to our #AntiTransHateMachine campaign & the launch of Season 2 of our podcast series, The Anti-Trans Hate Machine: A Plot Against Equality. Day by day, the attacks on trans kids grow louder, and more anti-trans bills keep moving through state legislatures. In this season of the #AntiTransHateMachine, we illuminate how the right wing has fueled these bills by generating a breathtaking and wide-ranging disinformation campaign. Listen to #AntiTransHateMachine S2 on Spotify Podcasts and purchase the print edition of Vol. 6 right here.

How can I read and purchase copies of TransLash Zine?

You can read & share the digital editions of our zine anytime for free, right here on this page, as well as on Issuu. To order print editions of our zine, just click the “ORDER PRINT” button beneath each issue in the “ISSUES” section of this page, and our printing & shipping partner Peecho will process your order. 

Why are the print editions of this zine $20 each? That seems like a lot of money for a zine.

The $20 cost for each print edition helps to pay our contributors for their art, writing, and photography. Each person is paid $250+ for their submission. Every issue of our zine costs over $4,000.00 to produce, factoring in all contributor payments and production costs. We want to continue paying our contributors fairly for their labor, so the $20 price point reflects how we value their artistry, and the quality of the zine (matte cover, full color, etc.). For TGNC siblings who want to purchase a print version of one of our zines but can’t afford the $20 price point, please send us a message and we will provide a discount code upon request. 

Is there a discount for bulk orders of TransLash Zine?

Yes. For orders of 5 items or more, the per unit price drops from $20 to $18. For orders of 50 items or more, the per unit price drops to $16. You can see the full range of bulk order discount options on each order page, such as here for ‘Migration Stories’

Why didn’t you use a local printer to print and ship your zine? Why Peecho?

Team TransLash needed an order fulfillment solution that was reliable, could ship worldwide, and could receive multiple currencies beyond USD. When a local solution provides an affordable option for us, we will consider switching. Send us your recommendations!

How long will it take to receive my order?

It can take up to 5 working days to manufacture your zine(s). You will receive an email notification from Peecho when the package is ready to be shipped, including an estimate for the delivery time. Depending on the destination worldwide, we expect that your order might take an additional 2-3 weeks to arrive due to supply chain delays related to COVID-19. Thank you for your patience and understanding!

I received my zine and it’s in poor condition, or I don’t like it. Can I get a refund?

We do not offer refunds except in specific circumstances. Please send us a message (or DM us at @translashmedia) and we will do our best to work with you to resolve the issue.
