Here's this nice guy.  He likes to wear skirts and dresses and women's clothes.  It's not kinky for him... not really.  He identifies as a transvestite, one of least talked about *** when we talk about Trans* folk.  In his zine Blue Floral Gusset he talks about it.  About wearing skirts full time, and how the world reacts.  Also, this guy... he like heavy metal, and Doctor Who and hanging with his housemates, as you shall see if you read through...

Sometimes Monday is nice and easy, and sometimes it's rough and tumble.  This particular Monday is more the latter.  It calls for an extra shot of espresso, some queercore turned up real loud to drown out the traffic, and maybe that special scent of permanent markers tagging the bathroom stall, telling the world that indeed, we are 2QT2BSTR8.  As a distraction, and following with the theme of the day, let's all share in the delight that is 1991's QT#1 by the QT Collective. 

 

I'm here drinking my morning coffee and an article pops up in my news feed about another trans kid who was bullied to death.  This needs to stop.  Seriously, adults in these kids lives, if you can't protect them, if you can't keep them safe then at the very least you're negligent and in all probability you're responsible for their murder.  I'm not the first to say it, either.  Here's this... it came to QZAP as a flyer, but is probably from an uncredited zine*.  Please print this and share it like crazy.  We need to stop this epidemic of queer and trans murders, whether by their own hands or someone elses.

 

* If anyone knows where this originally came from or who the creator is, please let us know so we can credit it properly and update the archive record.

This week/end is pretty busy for us at QZAP.  Chris is currently in NYC at the Queers and Comics conference, hobnobbing with queer zine comics bigwigs like Rachael House (Red Hanky Panky),   Anonymous Boy (Anonymous Boy), and Elvis Bakaitis (Homos In Herstory) among others.   The four of them will be on a panel on Friday talking about QZAP and our residency project.  Meanwhile, back in the midwest Milo and Shannon will be in Chicago at the Chicago Zine Fest on  Saturday, selling zines and t-shirts and generally being adorkable.  If you're in or near Chicago stop by and say "Hello"

Because of Chris' participation at Queers and Comics our zine of the day (#QZOTD - let's make this happen) is Milky Boots #9.  It's a sweet and amusing diary comic.  While we've got a number of comics, comix, and illustrated zines in the archive, there's something about a diary comic that's endearing.  See, we're not always punk rawk and safety pins through the nipples.  We have a sensitive side, too...  Anyway, on with the #QZOTD:
