“Major gayness, in your mailbox!”Posted: March 18, 2012
#1 MustHave, a queer photozine
This project is about visibility, celebrating diverse queer people, and re-framing the queer experience outside of the victim paradigm often seen in popular culture. It is a way to communicate about non-mainstream queer culture and share empowering images of queerness. #1 must have is a representation, an artifact, and a celebration of queerness in individual terms. We are lucky enough to have incredible love and support in our queer community(ies); our hope is that viewers will find similar empowerment and inspiration through these images.
They’re on issue number two now, so they must be doing something right. I mean, just look at it!
