FANZINI GOES TO THE MOVIES includes contributions from a host of artists and writers including A.A. Bronson, John Dowd, General Idea, Peter Hujar, Ray Johnson, John Jack Baylin, and Reggie Walker. Loosely divided into seven sections (Letters/Discussion, Deliverance, Women in Microfiche, Dissolve or Perish, Feshit!, Palm Casino Revue, and Sensational Action), the zine collages together appropriated advertisement imagery, correspondence between some of the artists, cartoons, and soft-core porn.
From Queer Zines, Volume One (second edition):
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.
