    The third issue Fanzini. A short run Canadian queer zine totalling five issues published between 1972 and 1975. “Fanzini was produced by John Jack Baylin, originally as a fauz (or not-so-faux) fanzine to John Dowd, a handsome New York leatherman with a physique reminiscent of a ‘Tom of Finland’ character. Dowd himself provided many of the collages that appear in Fanzini, especially the earlier issues: They tend to combine Walt Disney characters and leathermen. .. Fanzini Goes to the Movies includes contributions by Ray Johnson, Vince Aletti, Peter Hujar, and General Idea. We see that the editor has now made connections to New York’s more radical gay scene of the time, not the gay liberation set, but the intellectual hedonists of the witching hour. The classic FETISH border appears for the first time.” (Queer Zines, Volume One)
