Shotgun Seamstress discusses the difficulties of being a black person within dominantly white punk and queer scenes. The author and contributors give anecdotes about their experiences at punk concerts. Osa interviews local punk artists of color, and provides excerpts of her own writing about racism. The zine incorporates images and sparse typewritten sections for a dynamic effect on each of the pages. Multiple issues have been produced, each focusing on a different aspect of black punk culture (e.g. Toni Young, James Spooner, Aye Nako, Xray Spex, Kicktease, Afro-Punk, tattoos, money) and how people of color interact with popular culture. Issue 6.5, is an add-on to Shotgun Seamstress. This interview zine asks a set of questions to first-generation Nigerian-American punks. They talk about how Nigerian music and identity are different than African-American music and identity and how seeing Third World poverty on trips home frames their perspective on class debates. The author responds to the questions herself, as well.
