"A fanzine inspired by Greek synth musician-poet-goddess Lena Platonos and her 1986 album Lepidoptera, reissued in 2018 on Dark Entries Records. Incorporates fragments of her lyrics/poetry and music video stills in dark and dreamy collages about the struggle of coming to terms with a morphing identity, and finding peace, power and transcendence through transformation. Bilingual design in Greek and English. Includes a separate A6 art postcard insert with mysterious butterfly runes connected to the zine.
50% of proceeds from this zine will be donated to Colour Youth, an Athens-based LGBTQ youth rights activist organization, in honor of all the butterflies who have been longtime fans of Lena yet continue to face severe discrimination and violence there today.
