Skate or Cry
When I see that a zine is going to be about girl skating stuff I now automatically assume that it will be about roller derby. I guess this just reflects what my female friends are interested in.
Skate or Cry is actually about girl skateboarding. Inside there are interviews with a couple of girl skaters, including one who is the editor of Hate on This (an American female skateboarder zine), personal sktateboarding stories, and info on a number of (mostly terribly awesome) skateboard movies.
I guess when it comes down to it you can just say this is a zine about sexism, fear, and bravery. Lets hope there's more bravery (and less of the other two) in the future.
