▲ ANIMAL will also be hosting Elbow Room’s summer zine release! Elbow Room (fka Grlz Night) is an open collective based out of Richmond, Virginia. They aim to create encouraging spaces and build community by hosting events around town, supporting one another and printing a quarterly zine. Anyone is welcome to participate in their group events. However, they hope to center the voices of women, people of color, queer, and non-cisgender folks, as well as anyone who is differently-abled in any way.
They will be releasing their Summer Zine at ANIMAL this weekend! The theme of the zine is “Get it off your chest”.
