Original Plumbing: The Best of Ten Years of Trans Male Culture

June 2 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Powell’s City of Books, 1005 W Burnside Street, Portland, OR 97209 + Google Map

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 nearly 10 years, the magazine was the premier resource focused on their experiences, celebrations, and imaginations, featuring writing on both playful and political topics like selfies, bathrooms, and safer sex; interviews with queer icons such as Janet Mock, Silas Howard, Margaret Cho, and Ian Harvie; and visual art, photography, and short fiction. In celebration of the magazine’s 10-year run, Original Plumbing: The Best of Ten Years of Trans Male Culture (Amethyst Editions) compiles the best of all 20 issues. Original Plumbing founders Amos Mac and Rocco Kayiatos will present their essential collection. Mac and Kayiatos will be joined in conversation by Sassafras Lowrey, author of Lost Boi.
