As someone who has been fan, proponent and originator of independent publishing in the past (The Key, STOP & CSNA) I'm very excited to announce the launch of my on-line & limited print edition art & literary journal VACZINE. VACZINE will feature a varied assortment of photography, painting, multi-media art & collage, graffiti, video, short stories & broken werd. The extremely talented & visionary art director Frank Gargiulo will be in charge of the design and visual presentation. I will be serving as editor & publisher. Much like my earlier and much celebrated zine STOP, VACZINE is about everything & nothing. No theme yet it all comes together. Open to everyone to express anything. All I ask is that you always come correct and submit your best work. If you don't believe in it then how can you expect anyone else to? VACZINE is an annual publication that celebrates and focuses on all kinds of art, writing and visual or aural expression. We don't follow. We don't lead. We excel. VACZINE hopes to be a venue for artists to showcase their work in an uncensored & completely open venue.
VACZINE will also be curating upcoming exhibitions at The Leslie Lohman Gay & Lesbian Museum & Gallery that will feature the artists first seen in the magazine.

I am hoping to raise the printing costs for our debut issue so I can avoid the typical route of paid advertising. Instead VACZINE is giving 4 pages of advertising space for free to new designers & galleries that we feel are important to watch & worth supporting. Therefore I am seeking to raise $5000 to pay for the 10 deluxe editions and the remaining softcover editions which will be sold exclusively at The Leslie Lohman Museum as well as through VACZINE.
