Queer Zine Explosion 21 and now available as of 2010.
The International Homosexual Conspiracy
by Larry-bob Roberts
Published by Manic D Press, September 1, 2010.
In this series of cultural polemics on an unexpected array of contemporary topics — from mistaken first impressions ("Presumed Hetero Unless Proven Gay") to sustainable yet unaffordable pants ("Socially Responsible Pants") to critiques of bourgeois mindsets ("Middle Class Writer") — author Larry-bob Roberts offers hilarious insight into the absurdities of modern life and queer culture. His humorous observations are destined to jostle readers' complacency and confirm their worst suspicions.
