Same Heartbeats is a personal-political feminist zine from Belgium, created by Nina N who used to make Flapper Gathering. It is written in English.

Same Heartbeats started out as a travel zine, about visiting ladyfests and other queer/feminist festivals, and evolved more to a personal-political zine about feminist criticism, activism, theory and craft. Now it discusses the feminist movement, DIY subculture, traveling to feminist events, craft actions, self-publishing and zines, alternative media as activism, democratic collective organising, feminist history, DIY and more. The zine contains text as well as black-white illustrations and some comics. It's copied on recycled paper and hand-bound with colourful yarn.

12 issues of Same Heartbeats have been released so far. The first issue came out in 2007, the 8th issue was printed in April 2015, and issue 12 was released in 2017. Issue 4 includes a lino print on its cover. Issue 9 is a split zine with Artificial Womb.

Same Heartbeats is sold by ECHO, Nina's zine creation project. The zine can be found at some ladyfests, at the Alternative Bookfair (Alternatieve Boekenbeurs) in Ghent, Belgium, and other zine fests, in some riot grrrl and zine distros, and in zine libraries such as Shelf Zine Library and the Amsab archive in Ghent, the RoSa library in Brussels, the British Library, the Feminist Library in London, The Archive of Youth Culture in Berlin, and the library of the London College of Communication. Grassroots Feminism has published an interview and pdf versions of early issues of the zine.
