A Queer and Trans Fat Activist Timeline - audio zine is here!

It's like Listen With Mutha
Download and listen to the audio version of my zine, A Queer and Trans Fat Activist Timeline.

A Queer and Trans Fat Activist Timeline - audio version (.mp3, approx 52 mins, 24mb)

Audio version? Yep, that's me reading and describing the zine. It's an attempt to make a paper zine available to people in different formats, to make it more accessible. I was inspired to have a go at making an audio version by Judy Freespirit, who worked for a while recording audio books for people with visual impairments. This is the first time I've done this, feedback is welcome.

You can download the audio version of the zine for free and listen to it by itself, it takes about 50 minutes, or use the recording to augment your reading of the paper zine. You don't have to be visually impaired to listen to it.

You can still buy the paper zine too! Here's how.

Feel free to share the .mp3 and thanks to Simon Murphy for helping me.

I've sent you some money for a paper one, 'cause I like that kind of thing. But how cool that you've done an audio version too. Yay.

Ooooh, I very much enjoyed listing to the audio version. Well done!
The zine was also in the mail yesterday so I could read and listen at the same time. Your image descriptions were really helpful, because I couldn't make out all the details in the images.

Oops, forgot...
I absolutely LOVE the zine itself, the history and timeline, so many people I haven't yet heard of... I'm gonna google all of them! I'm already in love with Nomy Lamm. Thanks so much for all the hard work. (And thanks to everyone else involved in this project!)

Thanks for the encouragement Microbat. I was worried that I was a bit flat and boring. I didn't prepare much! Just read it out.
