I was intrigued by the “time capsule” aspects of issue 15 (winter 1992) and seeing contemporary connections, particularly sociopolitical anxieties. The entire volume was fascinating—I was drawn to “Greetings from a Queer Planet” which has posts within the issue–and “postcards” on the back cover) on/ from Russia (Julie Dorf and Masha Gessen) and Mexico (Tede Matthews, Cherríe Moraga); as well as the roundtable entitled “Sleeping with the Enemy? Men Talk about Sex, Race and Relationships (with Tomás Almuguer, Rudiger Busto, Ken Dixon and Ming-Yeung Liu).
