Teen Fag Issue 4
The theme of this "Damage Control Special" issue is bad homos, people the gay community would rather not acknowledge. Gordon Gordon and his writers do some in- depth research on queer serial killers and other skeletons in the community's closet. By the way, in his editorial, Gordon clarifies that despite the name of the zine, he's not actually a teenager. Dion Hansen explains why she hates Camille Paglia, who's so busy complaining about lesbians that she never manages to mention Tribe 8 or Susie Bright. Miles Long profiles several Gay Republicans, whom he refers to as "House Niggers of the New Right." Kathy Sawhill report on the Pro-Life Alliance of Gays and Lesbians (PLAGAL), a group of homos who are actually anti- abortion. Gordon interviews Bill Andriette of the NAMBLA Bulletin, who joined NAMBLA at age 15. At the bloody heart of the issue are profiles of bad, bad homos Jeffrey Dahmer, Roy Cohn, John Wayne Gacy, Aileen Wuornos, "Patient Zero" Gaetan Dugas (though I think Teen Fag should have sought opinions besides Randy Shilts on this one), Leopold & Loeb, and the trio of queers from Tacoma who faked a hate-crime attack on their home. The review section includes an in-depth analysis of Boiled Angel and Baby Sue comics that is the sort of reviewing that should be undertaken by more zines. Plus lots of comics by Blair Wilson, Bea Bea, David Kelly, Goat Boy comics by C.A. Fig, VelVeeda, Tony "Anonymous Boy" Arena, Sarah Bell, etc.
