Our third installment of Butcher Queers is long, long overdue. We thought the whole zine was lost due to a computer malfunction late last year, but we managed to save the lost data. So much has changed since the last issue. We have witnessed an economic meltdown, spiralling unemployment and a growing sense of public unease. However, threats also present opportunities – people become resourceful, more creative and imaginations flourish. And who better to lead the way than the talented homosexual? You could even argue that us queers are at the beginning of our own Renaissance, a new shift in political interest, rejection of stereotypes and dissatisfaction with a limited commercial gay scene that needs shaking up.
