Original Plumbing - the Best of Ten Years of Trans Male Culture
Independently published from 2009 to 2018, Original Plumbing grew from a Bay Area zine to a nationally acclaimed print quarterly dedicated to trans men. For nearly ten years, the magazine was the premier resource focused on their experiences, celebrations, and imaginations, featuring writing on both playful and political topics like selfies, bathrooms, and safer sex; interviews with queer icons such as Janet Mock, Silas Howard, Margaret Cho, and Ian Harvie; and visual art, photography, and short fiction. Published in conjunction with the magazine's ten-year anniversary, this essential collection compiles the best of its twenty-issue run. Selections are reprinted in full colour, with an introduction by activist Tiq Milan and a new preface by the founding editors.
