MAGAZINE PORN: [RUMOURS]

MARGATE QUEER ZINE

IMG_2659

“Rumours”, the brainchild of Margate’s “………”, is a publication that is still made of paper, and for that it’s already a winner.

This magazine smells like bedroom and leaks anonymously submitted secrets of queer life in Margate.

It is filled with hilariously written accounts of the history of Margate, a map of current cruising spots, and unapologetically awkward and honest accounts of dates and first sexual experiences.

This zine literally spits the truth on how queer life is in an entirely relatable way. Particularly if you have not always lived in the big city. These humble accounts of suburbia perfectly illustrate the natural fumblings and stumblings of a gay or two blindly feeling out the world.

The writing style throughout is laced with kindly camp sarcasm and made me giggle out loud with lines such as: “There’s a jarring mix of Comic Sans and twee victoriana homeliness in the decor.” And there is an essence of “in joke-ness” without excluding readers who are not familiar with Margate.

It is inspirational to read such accounts free of pretence and ego and Artpornblog strongly recommends you follow the email link below and order a copy. And most importantly get to Margate.

This is one for your cult draw of rarities!

Thanks to “……..” for keeping it real.
