Do you want to hear tales of adventure and mayhem? Rediculousness and perhaps questionable choices? Then check out Swanboy, the story of one fairly tall Australian fellow with a swan costume living in Tokyo.
Monday means back to work, back to school. If that sounds like a bummer, why don't you tag along with us to Fag School? It's silly and dirty and gritty and filled with good things like band interviews and naked mens and reviews and real talk about being a go-go boy.
Like the title says, it's *NOT* all punk rock and safety pins. Sometimes queer zines are about faded celebrities and xeroxed cocks. One fine example is Susan Mini Mag #2. In addition to the penii, SMM#2 has a lovely k.d. lang pin-up page, the titular tributes to Susan Dey, and a page of cute puppies! There's something for everyone without being fun for the whole family.
Do you have feathers?
Do you fantasize about gay dinosaurs?
Are you a dinosaur?
Are you gay?
If you considered any of these questions for a second, you should totally check out Dinosaurs Had Feathers: A Kinky Gay Dinosaur Coloring Book. See the mighty Straponasur and hear the roar of the Fucmitilimsaurus.
A little fairey (actualy a big bear) let us know that the one and only Ms Vaginal Davis was going to be performing at the Utopias Performance Art Festival in Kingston, Ontario tomorrow. Because Vag is such an important part of queer zine history we wanted thought it would be good to highlight one of her zines. Thus, Yes, Ms Davis.
Cowgrrrl Ink was one of the first zines that got included in the digital archive way back in the day. A hotbed of feminist and lesbian activism coalescing around a group called The Cowgrrrls from 1994, this seems to be their newsletter/manifesta, and it's fantastic.
We don't get to call out 'hometown heros' often at QZAP, so it's with some pleasure that we give you today's zine… Fuh Cole #3. Made in Milwaukee in the early 90s, this is a great piece of hystory. It's got everything: rants against Kinkos and fundies, letters to the editor, local tidbits, cut-n-paste and more.
Our pal Billy, zinester extraordinaire, has just released his first set of Zinester Trading Cards. We submited a card for QZAP, and it got included in the first set. The projct is silly, but it's a nice way to give props to the community of kooky self-publishers. Assorted sets are $3 plus shipping.
