OUTspoken Sessions: Friday, April 4 (feat. Yumi Sakugawa and the Zine Workshop)

Are you interested in learning about zines and DIY (do-it-yourself) culture? Want to be able to express your views, educate, and be educated?

Come to our experimental *OUTspoken Sessions Open Mic + Zine Workshop on Friday, April 4th, from 6:30-9pm, at the UCLA Labor Center (675 S Park View St, LA 90057).

After our regular open mic and featured artist performances, students from Pitzer College’s Asian American and Queer Zines Class will lead a FREE workshop about personal and political zines, DIY culture, and how to make a zine.

Featured Artist


Yumi Sakugawa is a Southern Californian comic book artist and the author of I THINK I AM IN FRIEND-LOVE WITH YOU.  Her work often deals with themes of transcendence, meditation, outer space exploration, reincarnation, memory and personal identity. A regular contributor to the Rumpus and a graduate of the fine art program of University of California, Los Angeles, Yumi is currently working on an anthology of short comic stories. She also loves good coffee and the pursuit of the perfect Los Angeles taco.

Due to our love of creative forms of collective care and healing justice, Equal Action is particularly captivated by Yumi’s Illustrated Meditation Guides.

As always, arrive by 6:30pm to sign up for the open mic.

Entrance + food = $3
No one will be turned away due to a lack of funds!

*OUTspoken Sessions is a queer youth-oriented open mic and safe space. All ages and loving identities are welcomed to attend.
