'Pansy Beat' was a short-lived fanzine published by Michael Economy in New York from 1989 to 1990, totalling five quarterly issues. Each issue’s 50-some black-and-white pages documented the exuberant downtown gay and drag club scene of that era and included one free condom. The zine offered a glimpse into an exhilarating alternative universe during the darkest years of the AIDS crisis. Interviews profiled downtown personalities on the verge of global stardom, many still working to this day. This book presents new full-colour artwork by some of the original contributors, plus new essays and interviews.
