The Alchemist's Closet Is A Magical Zine Store Catering To The Odd Customer and Specializing In Queer, Trans, Genderqueer, Feminist, Punk & Anarchist Zines.





This just made my life. No joke. It’s a non-profit organization that “recycles” binders and supplies them to trans/agender/nonbinary youth that either financially can’t afford a proper binder or due to circumstances such as unsupportive parents cant obtain one,for free. I just have to wait until the first week of Sept. to apply for one (they use applications to ween out the people who use them for cosplay and such that way the people who really need them get them) due to a supply shortage. But the first week of Sept is in like a day. And I’m gonna get a proper binder that fits and is safe. And I’m literally in tears right now because I’m so excited! 😂😂😂

Comment if you want the website! I need to share this with the world!

Hi, can you send the link to this blog?  Or you can reblog it here, and I’ll reblog it

Typical trans masculine manure. Call something “trans active” and all they have are resources for trans men. COOOOOOOLLLLL

more and more i am convinced that “trans people” just means trans men. 

Reblogging this for the resource, but for the respondent above me, please do look again at the site. They have resources for trans girls, boys, and non-binary kids (Resources > Guides). They offer voice training for trans feminine people (Services > Voice Coaching). Almost all of their resources, besides the binder project, voice training, and gender-specific affirmations for children (which they have boy, girl, and nonbinary versions of, all presented equally) are gender-neutral, aimed at navigating various legal issues and school system issues.  Women are widely represented in their staff. Please feel free to point out anything I may have missed, but I’m not sure where you are getting your impression of them as trans-masculine-supporting only.


We are still here, holding ceremony at our sacred places, and doing what we need to do to be Winnemem Wintu, of the McCloud River, in Northern California.

The federal government tries to erase us by calling us “unrecognized”, but we have been here long before the United States was invented, and we will be here long after it’s gone.

This is my Patreon, where you can become a patron of my art, starting at just $0.50 per month. Perks for every level of contribution. I really, really need the money, too— queer, trans, disabled and completely broke here! Please boost & support. Thank you.


Images from “FAG,” my first zine, 2013. I had an idea that, if you’re gonna call me dirty names, you should be just as prepared to say such things to the kid version of me, because I was just as much a fag then as now. I wanted there to be a high contrast between the sweetness of the photos and the harshness of the words.

Patreon, if you haven’t heard of it, is a platform for artists to get paid for their art. You can pledge toward the creation of work, and you can also get rewards for pledging, like pieces of artwork made for you. I have set one up— if you would like to be a patron, this is where you pledge!

I could really use the money right now! My partner and I will be driving from Maine to Louisiana soon in my car, and I don’t have much for an emergency (ie., one of our hosts couldn’t host) or car breakdowns (I have an old car and its 1800+ miles). I’ll be making some great stuff soon and I’m looking forward to posting it!

Check out my work at!

OK, that’s it for now with the personal posts. Back to queer zines soon.

My partner and I will be passing through Charlotte, NC area and Montgomery AL area on August 8-9 respectively. We are a queer disabled nonbinary person (me) & a queer man (him). I have a serious illness and am not able to work much or earn much money, so I haven’t been able to afford to get hotels or anything for this trip, which is how I’m bringing my cat and my belongings to Louisiana for my move there from Maine.

If we don’t find a place we may have to sleep in the car where I may become pretty sick. We very much need a place to crash— a floor is fine, in queer-friendly, cat-friendly circumstances. Please help! And please, please boost and tell any friends in the area. We are friendly and kind, and the cat is a fixed male who is sociable with all creatures.
