About

#BLKGRLSWURLD is a bi-annual zine run by artist Christina Long and her younger brother and sister since 2013. As a trio of artists and writers they are known as Trifecta Studios. Being young African American metalheads sharing their love of the Metalcore music scene, they post footage from live shows and host open calls for art and prose.

The zine is international and open to anyone who supports women in the heavy music scene – Be it on the stage or in the crowd! #heavygirlsloveheavymusic
