Spring is here!!!!  Well, almost.  It's still in the 40s here at QZAP HQ, but the daffodils have come up, the lilacs are starting to bud, and us pansies have started to ride our bykes on the regular.  Speaking of bykes, we've got a number of zines in the archive that are about queers and their bicycles.  Here are some to get started...

Finally, our newest addition to the archive is Raw Vulva #2.  It's a fantastic snapshot of queer lady bike culture in San Francisco from 1993. 

 

 

We're still well ensconsed in Larry-Bob's collection and making out way through it.  We've recently added two issues of Pussy Grazer, both from the early 1990s.  As was popular at the time there are lots or scene reports, zine reviews, and tons of cut-and-paste delights.  Make sure to check out the critiques of Out Magazine, the gay and lesbian glossy made for straigh folks ;-)

Archive.qzap.org has 500 zines and bits of ephemera in it.  Our 500th record is a zine out of Boston called Rock Against Sexism.  This it the 4th issue, from 1992.  It's got a ton of interviews, a discussion about Political Correctness (funny, we're having similar discussions almost 25 years later), zine reviews, and a report back from an ACT UP/Boston fundraiser

We have been slowly but surely been working on cataloging a collection of zines donated to QZAP by Larry-bob, creator of Holy Titclamps and Queer Zine Explosion.  Among the most recent that we've processed is a run of Mousie by Anna Rampage.  Some of the reoccuring themes that come up in these are about bisexuality and biphobia, discussions of racisim from an Asian POC perspective, and a visiting and revisiting (across several issues) of a book called The Total Woman by Marabel Morgan from the early 1970s.  There is also the usual assortment of zine and book reviews, fantastic cut-up art and xerography, and comics from multiple contributors.
