Black & Pink Newspaper (Prison Abolition Now!)


The Black and Pink Newspaper has been distributed free of charge to a rapidly growing list of LGBTQ prisoners around the country since 2010! In October 2015, it was sent to over 8,200 prisoners.  Each issue is full of submissions from our incarcerated members, along with relevant news, history, and opinions from the free world and a letter from Rev. Jason Lydon.  We recently included a calendar so that prisoners in solitary confinement can keep track of which day it is.  Periodically, the newspaper includes a form for prisoners to update their PenPal listing.  Each month, we ask prisoners to reply to a feedback question via mail to inform our organizing efforts.

You can read the current newspaper and archives via, or scroll down for links to download the newspapers as PDFs from! (Once completes their transition to a new format, we will switch to their accessible reader and download options.)
