What To Keep, What To Give Away #2 -- Zine
Khristina begins What to Keep / What to Give Away #2 explaining that she writes to commune with others, and encourages other POC to add to the narratives of underrepresented folks and their experiences. Khristina writes beautifully, with sharp honesty, about sex and relationships with others and with herself; she reveals her contradictions, traumas, resiliencies, and survival tactics. She acknowledges her own faults and shortcomings, which is so relatable, refreshing, and truly commendable and inspiring. This zine explores interpersonal relationships, celibacy, anxiety + depression, consent + accountability, decolonial love + white supremacy, codependence + serial dating, body image + race/gender, abuse + trauma, silence + memory. Khristina has a way with words that kept me setting this zine down to really analyze myself, my past, and my relationships, sparking much needed reflection and conversations – highly recommended - text heavy self reflections over a lovely lunar graphic theme, included trigger warnings.
