Title: Original Plumbing: The Best of Ten Years of Trans Male Culture
Author: Edited by Amos Mac, Rocco Kayiatos
Publisher: Feminist Press
Independently published from 2009 to 2019, Original Plumbing grew from a Bay Area zine to a nationally acclaimed print quarterly dedicated to trans men. For ten years, the magazine was the premier resource focused on their experiences and imaginations, featuring writing on both playful and political topics like selfies, bathrooms, and safer sex; interviews with icons such as Janet Mock, Silas Howard, T Cooper, and Ian Harvie; and visual art, photography, and short fiction.
In celebration of the magazine’s ten-year run, this essential collection compiles the best of all twenty issues. Selections are reprinted in full colour, with a foreword by activist Tiq Milan and a new preface by the founding editors.
