new I HATE THIS PART OF TEXAS #5!
FINAL VERSION HERE NOW! John Gerken is definitely a genius. This issue contains things that will make you laugh, smile, and cry – visiting friends in the hospital, the early morning, the story of the zine’s title, picking up your friends shifts at work, Shelley’s annual trips to India, and organizing drag shows. But the real gem of this issue is the story of teaching 9-15 year olds how to fix bikes. It transcends the obvious and covers all kinds of education – homophobia, identity, feminism, and to question what we mean when we say “community”. It’s all very exciting and best of all it sparked new life and faith in myself. Maybe it can do that for you too; especially if you need it.
