Kristy Chan is a zinester from Florida, U.S.A.

Kristy is the publisher of three zines, all of which can be considered Riot Grrrl zines.

Wild Honey Pie was an early 1990s Riot Grrrl zine. The zine included personal stories on surviving abuse, social commentary on women's issues and punk values, and informational articles on various topics; for example, female genital mutilation and mercury in fillings. It also included zine and music reviews and a pen pal page.

Riot Grrrl Review was a zine that was first published in 1995 by Kristy, who felt that Action Girl Guide's less frequent publishing schedule at the time was the cause for a new zine that reviewed zines by young women.

Tennis and Violins was a perzine. Issue two was a split zine with Suburbia by Ceci Moss. Kristy Chan published the well-known Riot Grrrl piece "Girl Love Is..." in Tennis and Violins which was later reprinted in a number of other zines and, more recently, websites.

Kristy Chan was interviewed for zines such as Pure Tuna Fish in the 1990s.

Riot Grrrl Review is included in the Sarah and Jen Wolfe Zine Collection at The University of Iowa.
