Just Lookin’ Issue 6: Gays… In Space! Reading and Launch Party
October 25, 2018
Issue 6 of Just Lookin’, “Gays…In Space!” sets out to explore some of the most historic intersections of science fiction and slash fanfiction, as well as those new shores on the horizon. Starting with Star Trek: The Original Series and the beginning of published M/M fanfiction, the issue moves through the evolution of Star Trek’s original crew, to the budding tension in the latest Star Wars trilogy, to the fresh frontier of a Netflix original series. To celebrate its release, join us for a short reading and screening with Just Lookin’ author and editor Aysen Gerlach.
Just Lookin’ is a visual journal published by Aysen Gerlach that seeks to understand queer aesthetics in mainstream media through visual comparisons and discussions. Each issue is a different humorous case study in gay, lesbian, and queer subtexts found in mainstream media that otherwise presents as heteronormative, ranging from early 2000s teen girl movies to emo boybands and the days of guy-liner.
