started in 1990 as "a patently offensive publication of, by, and for people with HIV disease (and their friends and loved ones).

It ran for 11 issues over the next 9 years, 8 of which can be found here

Featuring bitterly amusing columns (cooking advice under "Get Fat, Don't Die"), amusingly bitter commentary ("Together for Eternity: Roy Cohn and Kimberly Bergalis"), and often clever centerfolds of HIV positive models (including one that could only be viewed by using a cylindrical mirror), this zine was a breath of fresh air during its run, and is still interesting reading today.
In the interests of full disclosure, I used to sell a lot of copies at my store.
