One of the zine ideas I'd really like to get off the ground is a zine about being a feminist in a fandom that's unfriendly to feminism, or unfriendly to people who have not historically been the majority in that fandom. I'm thinking specifically of women in comics and gaming here, but I would also welcome writing about being non-white, queer, or otherwise treated as the 'other' by the majority of your fandom. I'd love to have both personal stories and broader analysis.

As for a title, how about 'Storming the Clubhouse'?

I haven't ever really been in a fandom like that so can't really contribute, but I love the title. :D

I can contribute a ftm perspective. Especially since fear from reaction from my first fandom (majority straight cis white men comics fandom) about being rejected almost killed me, but female spaces accepted me happily.
