Name: “Gay Fieri: Guys like us”

 

Location: Etsy.com

 

Context: This is a zine I bought on Etsy for my friend. It is a homoerotic fan fiction zine depicting Guy Fieri, Food Network star, as not only a gay man, but one who relations with men who look very similar to him. Guy Fieri is a figure who ironically claimed as a public figure in certain hipster communities.

 

Relevance:  The DIY art scene and the fan fiction scene, both prevalent in youth culture today collide in this scene along with queer culture. This random and seemingly useless homemade zine is a piece of consumer culture that is in many ways so odd that it must be preserved.
