Original Plumbing: Trans Male Quarterly [Complete in Twelve Editions] [Together With] Translady Fanzine.

Oakland: Original Plumbing, 2009-13. First Printing(s). Original Wraps. "Whether or not we hang onto our original plumbing is up to us, but for the trans guys that do, 'original plumbing' is a term often used when referring to our genitals... It is the aim of OP to shoot true diversity in the FTM community; in size, age, body, surgery, hormone use and non-use, because it is our belief that surgery adn hormones don't necessarily make the man... What initially began as a zine to showcase photographs I had taken of various trans men in the community quickly snowballed into something much larger." (from the publisher's note in Issue 1)

A complete run of the cornerstone zine for the trans male scene. Essays, interviews, and profiles, richly illustrated, offers an important, and personal exploration into the world of transformation and transition. Significant scholarly value in addition to a strong 'finger on the pulse of the scene' element. Must own for any serious LGTB collection. Fine in Wrappers. Tight, bright, and unmarred. Color printed wrappers. Small 8vo. Var. pag. Illus. (color and b/w plates). Item #8325
