GenderFail is a publishing and programming initiative featuring the perspectives of queer and trans people and people of color.

GenderFail has a Risograph EZ 390u



GenderFail looks to build up, reinforce and open opportunities for creative projects that focus on printed matter. GenderFail invites artists, writers and activists to create publications, prints and programming to present through the platform. Since its inception in 2015, GenderFail has released content by Liz Barr, Jesse Harrod, Maria Tínaut, Anthony Iacono, Paige Hanserd, Ethan Kastner with upcoming works by Pallavi Sen, Roxana Azar and Jordan Loeppky-Kolesnik. GenderFail has presented work at MoMA PS1 (NYC), Ulises Books (Philadelphia), After School Special (Milwaukee) and SEDIMENT (Richmond).  Their publications can be found at Printed Matter (NYC), Art Metropole (Toronto), Artbook at MoMA PS1 (NYC), Quimby’s Books (Chicago) and Verbatim Books (San Diego).


GenderFail’s extensive library of art books, artist books and zines is available to the public upon request or at scheduled times, and we have been offering free use of Risograph machine printing to queer, trans, and non-binary identifying folks since Fall 2017. It is GenderFail’s mission to use these programs to share whatever resources we can with the communities we inhabit.
