Pink Mince

“For the confirmed bachelor of exceptional taste” runs the tagline, and with the emphasis on photography, collage, writing and the kind of retro imagery that pinballs between kitsch and really hot, Daniel Rhatigan’s funny, smart and beautifully designed zine puts a bit of much-needed underground OOMPH back into gay life.

Each issue is broadly themed and it’s in classic zine format (that's A5 to you). You will find my own modest contributions in Issue #3, ‘Alter Egos & Secret Identities’ (short novel extracts collaged with mucky photos, so, not that modest) plus BRAND NEW Issue #5 ‘The Louche Limp-wristed Lifestyle’ features a double-page spread of hilarious messages I haemorrhage off my phone at the end of each month and which have proved strangely popular on this here blog. I’ve seen a preview and if I do say so myself, it’s fricking hilarious. The rest of the issue ain’t bad either!

The bossman Daniel is a Yank, resident in London, a designer and typographer by trade, which is more than apparent in the slick-yet-home-done feel of the mag. Check out his blog (and excellent tats) here
