Scoop McCoy introduces his favorite hobby of ogling. “The issue is shock full of pinups of cute, buffed, barechested boys. Some of them are famous, some of them are anonymous. None of them, as far as I know, are gay. But you can always use your imagination. And ogle to your heart’s content” (McCoy, p.3).
An excerpt from an interview with Paul Bonomo, gay musician / gay punk from Maryland is included. “I live for sex. I want my performances and my music to just be complete sex. Just total sex. Because I love sex” (Bonomo, p.6).
Ben Weasel talks about his song, “I Wanna Be A Homosexual,” genderfuck antics, and his movie, Disgusteen.
