His most recent publication, Love+Loss, was released in fall 2020, with all proceeds going to the NAACP Legal Defense Fund. And a new solo zine is planned for spring, 2022. He's also published two collaborative issues of Northwest Sound Exchange, with more than 300 copies printed and distributed. A third issue is planned.
