about us

The trials and tribulations of growing up – we are all going through it. Fake Zine is a place where we feel at home. Take your shoes off, throw your sweatpants on, maybe make some coffee. We’re here to build a community. Now, we kindly ask you to acknowledge that you don’t know shit. We already did, that’s why we’re here trying to figure it out. Please, join us.
