THE ZINES

This section features the zines that were created by 24 migrant men, women, and transgender persons who sell sex in the Gauteng, Limpopo, and Mpumalanga provinces of South Africa.

The zines featured in this publication were made using a variety of art materials and processes, including cut-outs from magazines, drawings, printed text, painting and hand written stories. The zines communicate powerful stories and ideas.

Zines can be about anything and everything. While some of the zines in this publication include personal accounts of difficult childhoods and migration journeys, others include testimonies of resistance to gendered and cultural norms. Many shed light on the experiences of selling sex, calling for the decriminalisation of sex work, and the need for sensitisation efforts in order to reduce the stigmas often associated with their work and/or nationality. Collectively, the zine-stories share testimonies of love, heartache, survival, and pride.

While hard copies of the zines are available, you can also view them online on the MoVE Project Issuu page.
