RFD: A Country Journal for Gay Men Everywhere. Vol. XVI, No. 2. Issue 60

Liberty, TN: Short Mountain Collective, 1989. Quarto, publisher’s stapled illustrated stiff paper wraps.

Winter 1989 issue of RFD, a reader-written seasonal magazine providing information on gay country living and rural-based lifestyles. The brainchild of anti-urban queer activist Stewart Scofield, the publication was inspired by Country Women, a rural feminist journal and manual for lesbian back-to-land lifestyles. In 1974, Scofield alongside fellow rural radicals Carl Wittman and Allen Troxler founded RFD, which included details on gardening, cooking, art, poetry, fiction, astrology, letters to and from pen pals (from rural gay men and men in prison, "brothers behind bars"), and spirituality. While often assumed to stand for "radical faerie digest," the magazine had rotating titles for each issue following the acronym "RFD" (the present issue's title is "Re-addressing Faerie Doctrines"). Centered on on HIV/AIDS activism, this issue comprises regular features including letters to the publishers and readers, information on gatherings and organizations, books reviews, and more, with in memoriam pages dedicated to those lost to the epidemic. Profusely illustrated in black-and-white with contributed art and photography. Minor worming to wraps and a few leaves. Moderate rubbing and edgewear. Good. Item #6195
