Shortandqueer #16

This perzine by Kelly Shortandqueer almost entirely consists of an interview Kelly did with his Grandpa Sabin. Grandpa Sabin is so lively and fun. It's a pleasure to listen to him talk throughout the interview. There are snapshots too, but it's a text-heavy zine. I didn't read it all at once--I read it in three sittings. The war stuff is heavy though not boring. I guess my favorite part is at the end when Kelly asks what Grandpa Sabin thought about Kelly being trans. This is a good, solid issue of Shortandqueer, and I'm glad I read it. At the end I felt a little teary--something about the poignancy of the relationship got to me. I very much recommend this issue.
