The Local Rebel is an annual zine publication that aims to educate and empower our youth.
This second issue explores our Roots: the little nooks and crannies in the Singaporean narrative that aren't always told. We want to tell stories about heritage, and culture, and how that ties into intersectional feminism. In this edition, we interrogate our colonial history, uncover the lives of migrant workers, chat with Theresa Goh about her activism, visit the drag scene, and so much more.
The Local Rebel team is dedicated to making this zine as accessible and as fun as possible an educational resource. Aside from longform pieces, we've also put in visual mixtapes that support local, photographs of your everyday Singaporean, food reviews, FAQs, and posters for you to put up on your wall!
Estimated February 2018
Product details: 180 mm x 240.3mm, 85 pages
*TLR is a non-profit: we try as hard as possible to get the costs lowered, but not at the expense of the quality of the zine. We also prioritise accessibility, so if you would like to purchase a copy but cannot afford it, feel free to email us so we can work something out.

The Local Rebel is an intersectional feminist collective. Our mission: to educate and empower the local youth, because we believe that change starts with us.
We started TLR in 2015 as a platform to provide a voice for those who didn't see themselves in the Singaporean Story. 5 years on, we've found so much value in making activism accessible. Our zines explore intersectional feminism within a Singaporean context, with a different focus per issue.
The Local Rebel published its last zine (#3: Self) in 2020. Our first two zines (#1: Exploration, #2: Roots) are out of stock. Each issue will only have one print run.
