2016 Trans Humanist Zine Issue #1 by Elisa Mask and Zac Finger
‘Is transhumanism “gentrification of the human body”? What types of enhancements will be available or mandated to the disabled and disenfranchised? What does this mean for the definition of gender, sexuality, or queerness? What repercussions will this have on mental health? What ways might new advancements serve to enforce, or deconstruct, power? How will this adversely or positively affect social norms and the politically oppressed?’ (from back of the zine)
Issue #1 of the Trans Humanist Zine features two compelling short stories, a comic about being human in a digital age, poetry, and full-color art. The short stories have a unique formatting, allowing the text to be overlayed over beautiful - and rather technical looking - art. This zine will do nothing short of getting you to think about what transhumanism really means, and what that might mean for you. Pick up this great read today!
