This time around, Hoax focuses on the theme of feminisms and mythologies. The best thing about Hoax is the various ways that each theme is interpreted by the numerous contributors to each issue. Submissions range from personal mythologies to mythologies based in communities to mythologies of others. There are pieces on living/being/feeling alone, on “transgender women and the necessities of theory”, on feeling nostalgic for a time when queer folks were more participatory in HIV/AIDS activism, on the need to create archives and make history, plus WAY MORE. If you’ve read Hoax before, you know what to expect — so many dynamic essays & interviews, so many thoughtful ways of addressing a loose theme, that it takes a long time to get through & digest all of it. It’s just what a comp zine should be.
