I HATE THIS PART OF TEXAS 5 [by John Gerken]
The rest of this issue covers topics from the state of American health care to gender politics to bike politics. I like John's poetic writing. He makes any topic more inviting by his sensitive style. In addition, some of John's friends contribute articles and drawings and they definitely add to the zine's charm.
I will finally mention that John is a self-identified queer zinester. I only note this because it makes me beyond happy to include him among my team of queer heroes and crushes. A queer zinester who writes about fixing bikes, hanging out with punks at drag shows, teaching kids, and doing yoga ... swoon.
