I realized for many of my friends this is Emancipation Day! Not so long ago many felt LGBT people were supposed to feel ashamed for loving. The psychic tide shifted fast. Reminded me of the Stonewall rebellion in New York when the Gay community had enough of police harassment and fought back. 1969 RAT printed two same sex lovers on our cover that went onto Newstands all over the city. A first. I remember the working stiffs at our printer in Jersey who specialized in super market players. They puzzled over the cover as it rolled off the press.
“Which one is the girl?, they asked”
“You figure it out”, I replied.
They debated and debated. That it could be TWO MEN remained beyond their comprehension.
We are publishing a large tabloid sized book of RAT: Subterranean News with soft covers in color. Money raised from you will go towards the final electronic preparation and for printing. The ebook version as a PDF will be updated as more material is prepared.
