From Issue #2 of Venus Castina: The Art of Gender (1991), a wonderful interview my Ms. Bob Davis (Louise Lawrence Transgender Archive). Diet was the creator of Klubstitute, the legendary queer underground femme-trans cabaret.
At the same time I was publishing Homozone5 my friends and I published a zine about gender called Venus Castina. It was a place to showcase our art and poetry and write articles about our friends. It was a project of the House of Pancake: Kent Taylor, Micah, Randie Flame, Jade, Jude Hererra, Deanna Oliver and myself. We published it on a Macintosh Quadra and pasted up on gridboards on my kitchen table. It was a really great time.
I recently found the master pages of issue #2 and wanted to share articles about two of the towering figures in San Francisco queer culture, especially in the age of Klubstitute.
