Part of what made/makes ACT UP so effective was that it was a coalition (the "C" in the name) of diverse groups that were all focused on pieces of the AIDS crisis.  One of those groups was YELL, the Youth Education Life Line.  YELL was comprised of young folks from middle-school to university age who were concerned with a myriad of issues that affected them.  One of their outreach stratagies was making and distributing the YELL zine which had info about safer sex and harm reduction practices, news about zaps and actions that folks did in their schools, and how to be involved in activisim around HIV/AIDS.

June 1 is kinda sorta the official start of Summer in the Northern Hemisphere.  With the advent of summer comes all the fun things like days at the beach, drinking orange soda, cruisin' hotties, reading trashy novels and celeb zines, and all the summer jamz.  To kick off summer QZAP style, we'd like you to check out Psycho #1 Fan by Seth Bogart.  Yeah, that Seth... from Gravy Train!!!!! and Hunx and his Punx.  He's so dreamy!

 

 

Milo woke up this moring thinking about zir pals who used to be in the Pirate Cheerleaders.  They were a local-to-Milwaukee troupe of radical queer and less-queer women who would perform around the city.  They were angry and funny and feminist and kicked serious ass.  They were also part of a larger movement of radcal cheerleaders at the turn of the millenia.  Lucky for QZAP that we managed to get a copy of their cheerzine before they disbanded to work on other rad projects.

 

MINI GAY CHEER:
gay, straight or rainbow clad
sex is sex and none of it's bad
get god outta my pants
hey jesus, lay off this!

No Apology #1 is very much a slice of it's time.  It's a zine that's also a record label catalog.  It's angry and self-righteous and a little smug in equal amounts.  We're not really too sure what to say about it, other than it's new to the digital archive as of this week.
