No Snow Here is a perzine is a zine done by Nadia. This issue deals a lot with racism, explaining the difference between the difference between racism by a dominant group and racism by an oppressed group. The description of this by Nadia is perhaps the best that I have ever read, and should really be given a second life in an issue that is just devoted to that. The number of different pieces in this issue are broken apart through interesting changes in fonts and the overall backdrops used. This allows the zine to flow much faster than it would normally go. The font is small and compressed enough that Nadia is able to stick a lot on one page, which means that individuals will be digging this zine for at least an hour. For individuals that may be looking to buy a zine but do not want to just read a dour and angry zinester, No Snow Here is a good zine. Instead of just focusing on all the shit that has happened in eir life, there are pieces during this issue such as “Insiration” that show happy moments of Nadia’s life as well. This zine just seems to have a Manichean balance to it that many zines can never really find. NeuFutur had two issues of No Snow Here, and we were impressed with how solid of a read each of them were. Nadia’s work may be a perzine, but it has larger implications for discussions concerning racism and sex/sexuality. Email Nadia and see if ey would be willing to send some copies of this zine; it’s worth whatever ey charges for it.
