Download, during March 2022, our Digital Media Welcome Kit - It includes FBA and G&SS backgrounds, wallpaper, Concentration video, and a digital copy of the latest issue of the zine SJZ. 

Physical copies of this edition are available thanks to a grant from Southwest and Border Cultures Institute. Copies will be distributed throughout the NMSU campus during March.

Since 2016, FBA has edited, produced, and distributed SJZ: Social Justice Zine, a self-published, small-circulation publication created not to generate profit, but to be shared and to disseminate ideas to others. SJZ is a collaboration between undergraduate and graduate students, alumni, faculty, and friends of Gender and Sexuality Studies at NMSU, the borderlands region, and beyond. This collaborative zine offers connections to community, participatory and collaborative learning, and circulates creative work and perspectives from underrepresented groups.
