Read information about the authorTomas Moniz is the founder, editor, and a writer for the award winning zine Rad Dad. Looking for radical parenting community, he created Rad Dad to provide the space for parents (and in particular fathers) to share, commiserate, plan, and support each other in challenging patriarchy one diaper at a time. And as China Martens has said, “Tomas has been the most vocal voice within zines, trying to start and keep a discussion within this aspect of radical politics and parenthood.” His writing has been included in many zines about parenting as well as in the books My Mother Wears Combat Boots and Don’t Leave Your Friends Behind.
He’s been making zines since the late nineties, and his most current project is the serialized zine novella, Without Words & Without Kneeling, which began in September 2010 and will continue a chapter a month for twelve months. As Jami Sailor, longtime zinemaker, explained, “I enjoyed Without Words & Without Kneeling and am impressed with Moniz’s concept. I really love seeing zinemakers expand on the current concepts and definitions of what constitutes a zine.”
He also is cofounder and co-host of the successful monthly reading series Lyrics and Dirges, every third Wednesday at Pegasus Books Downtown and a brand new open mic, Saturday Night Special at Nick’s Lounge. He’s been making zines since the late nineties, and his most current project is the serialized zine novella, Without Words & Without Kneeling, which began in September 2010 and will continue a chapter a month for twelve months. Tomas teaches at Berkeley City College focusing on basic skills classes. He is helping to raise three children and lives with a menagerie of animals in Berkeley, California.
