Come Out Fighting

Come Out Fighting

A few months ago, masc was invited to collaborate on a small print project alongside ACT UP Dublin and Butcher Queers. Come Out Fighting saw stories, previously published on this website, repurposed for the zine; Robbie Lawlor’s account of the transformation of his self following his HIV diagnosis and Adam Houlihan’s description of the realities around accessing PrEP in Ireland.

These stories are complemented by original content, including: a timely explanation of the Undetectable Equals Untransmittable [U=U] movement, how to be more sound on dating apps, things one might [wrongly] think about HIV and a historical look at sexual health campaigns and their effectiveness.

Come Out Fighting takes a true-to-life look at how we view sex; hooking up, getting off – the before, during and after. It seeks to provoke conversations about how men who have sex with men view themselves and each other as sexual beings. It seeks to celebrate sex, intimacy, love, lust or whatever you’re having yourself; to empower – regardless of status. 

Although print copies are limited, the zine can be downloaded here.
