In his own words…
I read an article once from a gay writer about how he felt he didn’t have any history help him understand himself as a gay man, which I think is more than a little bit bullshit. Queer people made their own, informal, spaces within (outside of or perhaps even in between) social structures that allowed for them to safely express themselves and their sexuality. One of those key spaces was beats, where we used to (and still do) hook up. Hook Up is a zine documenting my own personal experiences hooking up and having sex as a gay man, and it will be paired with a companion podcast made up of personal hook up stories of different types of gay men.
As a community, we do have history and stories to tell, Hook Up is an exercise in documenting these experiences- in recording them and writing them down- so that we have them to go back to, laugh at and be a little bit grossed out by.
