Same Heartbeats is a personal-political zine from Belgium, created by Nina Nijsten who used to make Flapper Gathering. It's written in English. 4 issues of Same Heartbeats have been released so far. The first issue came out in 2007 and the 5th issue will appear in the summer of 2012.

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 and theory. 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. It contains text as well as black-white illustrations and some comics. It's copied on recycled paper and hand-bound. Issue 4 includes a lino print on its cover.

Same Heartbeats is sold by ECHO, Nina's zine creation project. It can be found at ladyfests, at the Alternative Bookfair (Alternatieve Boekenbeurs) in Ghent, Belgium, in some riot grrrl distros, in Shelf Zine Library and at the Zine Fest organised by ECHO. Grassroots Feminism has published an interview and pdf versions of the zine.
