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 ten 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 ten-year run, this essential collection compiles the best of all twenty issues. Selections are reprinted in full color, with an introduction by activist Tiq Milan and a new preface by the founding editors.
Join us in the Rare Book Room to celebrate 10 years of Original Plumbing! Editors Amos Mac and Rocco Kayiatos will be joining the panel, as well as Transguy Supply founder Scott Rose, artist, DJ and TGNB Programming manager D'hana Perry and Take Two Storytelling show host Harvey Katz!
