Midwest Queer & Trans Zine fest - 
Annually the third weekend of October in the Open Book building. Fairly large 2-day community event, 1000 people attended last year. Co-hosted by Late Night Copies Press & the Tretter collection in GLBT studies.
TC zine fest isn't explicitly queer, but some of the main organizers are queer trans folks. This year instead of a fest they're doing a series of smaller readings on a quarterly basis (Late Night Copies Press is speaking at the next one, which is at the Walker): 
Better Homes & Dykes - Twin-cities based (print only) publication for dykes & those who love them. Queer & trans-run / trans-friendly. 
you can get involved by volunteering to write for the magazine or helping with planning and print production.
