Girl Crush: Mimi Nguyen

Mimi Thi Nguyen is a zinester I was introduced to somewhere in the year 2000 through the now retired Pander Zine Distro:

From zinewiki:

Throughout the 1990s, Mimi Nguyen published the zines Aim Your Dick, Slant (later changed to Slander) and edited the compilation zine Evolution of a Race Riot (later shortened to Race Riot). She contributed to zines such as How to Stage a Coup, Hard as Nails, and Sty Zine, in addition to being a regular columnist for Punk Planet and "shitworker" for Maximumrocknroll.

She is currently an assistant professor of gender and women's studies and Asian American studies at the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign. She co-edited Alien Encounters: Pop Culture in Asian America (Duke University Press, 2007) and co-writes Threadbared, a research blog on the politics of fashion and beauty.
