The Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) was first launched in November 2003 in an effort to preserve queer zines and make them available to other queers researchers historians punks and anyone else who has an interest DIY publishing and underground queer communities. Our mission statement has been consistent over the past nine years: 'The mission of the Queer Zine Archive Project (QZAP) is to establish a 'living history' archive of past and present queer zines and to encourage current and emerging zine publishers to continue to create. In curating such a unique aspect of culture we value a collectivist approach that respects the diversity of experiences that fall under the heading 'queer.' The primary function of QZAP is to provide a free on-line searchable database of the collection with links allowing users to download electronic copies of zines. By providing access to the historical canon of queer zines we hope to make them more accessible to diverse communities and reach wider audiences.'
