Hint Tip: Queer Zines

Take the angry Revolting Cocks anthem from 1990, "Beers, Steers + Queers," subtract the steers, add a few rears and what do you get? Queer Zines, an exhibition of 100 indie rags with a radical queer sensibility—beginning with the seminal imagery of Straight to Hell in the late 70s to the more cleaned-up Butt of today—at Printed Matter's NY Art Book Fair at Phillips de Pury from October 24 - 26. (If you go on the 25th, you can catch the latest Saturday@Phillips, this time focusing on the art collections of Hamish Bowles, Humberto Leon & Carol Lim of Opening Ceremony and Everard Findlay.) And now, because we know you want to start googling queer zine titles in hopes of raunch: My Comrade, Dik Fagazine, They Shoot Homos Don't They?, Agony, Young Men at Play. Happy Searching...
