We built and assembled box sets for our second edition of Issues 1–13, originally published in Philadelphia in the Year of the Earth Pig.

We intend for box sets to find their homes in community reading spaces and zine libraries, so that queer and trans Asian readers can in turn, find their home here. Let us know if you are, or know of, any such space near you that would like to host a box set!

Want a box set to live with you? A limited quantity are available for individual sale. See options for purchase through our form, including a chance to fill out your collection with zines from Friends of FORTUNE.

Each box set includes:
Issues 1–13, informational inserts printed on vellum, plexiglass, plywood, zinc screws, polypropylene strap with aluminum buckle.
6 1/8 x 9 5/8 x 3 inches
Edition of 50


Part of our practice is to gather resources, from our community at home, for our community at large. Our resource guides have taken form as a placemat distributed during a gallery show, a one-page booklet shared with a printmaking class, and a digital document disseminated following a panel — and always, we hope, in response to present needs.

If you would like a digital or print copy of any resource guides we’ve assembled, email us at

this PAMPHLET ︎︎︎

provides a non-exhaustive list of resources, compiled on ocassion of a vigil hosted by PALMS (Philadelphia Asians 4 Liberation and Mutual Solidarity) on March 30, 2021 in Mifflin Square Park.

The vigil was organized in honor of Christian Hall, the Atlanta shooting victims, and in the wake of anti-Asian violence. In turn, these resources are intended to help navigate the intersections of state violence, mental health, sex worker stigma — and to work in solidarity against structural racism built upon imperialism and anti-Blackness. To read more about the vigil, and view/print the full PDF, see here.

this DOC ︎︎︎

comprises a full transcription of Press Play — LIVE!, a Zoom panel we hosted in May 2020, during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, and in the midst of incredible movement work for Black liberation and police abolition.

We facilitated a conversation with No Shame Distro, Sponge Gourd CollectiveEndless Editions, Other Publishing, and Ulises, and posted here some highlights on their varying models for care, sustainability, and adaptability.

We began to assemble a crowdsourced list of bail funds and reeducation tools not only for our queer Asian community, but also for those we are adjacent and accountable to.
Here they are.

this BOOKLET ︎︎︎

was made in collaboration with Alyssa Piro’s Artist Books, Zines, and Independent Publications class at Tyler School of Art, Temple University, in the fall of 2019.

We invited the class to write about print resources  in and outside of the institution that they found inaccessible, or in abundance. We collectively edited a document of riso resources, distribution sites, queer and Asian archives, and returned this booklet.

this PLACEMAT ︎︎︎

was printed on the occasion of Issue 4: TECHNOLOGIES. We solicited recommendations on critical and culturally resonant texts, as well as queer- or Asian-operated places of importance; and printed the latter as a grid of QR codes.

These placemats debuted on a round table we built, crowned with a lazy susan, for our issue release at High Tide Gallery. Many of the linked restaurants and sites are now out of business, for reasons including development and forced eviction.
