marisa and elizabeth/white lightning are getting their 90s on by doing a zine with first kiss stories. i am sort of philosophically opposed to the oppressive pressure to narrativize sexual/romantic firsts when what about all those much better seconds or thirds or fourths or fiftieths or whatever? however, i am not philosophically opposed to kissing, so send them your stories. and check out WL’s amazing kiss clips: trip and lux in the virgin suicides! (“i got to get back before bed check.”) keith and watts in some kind of wonderful!
ps. marisa has informed me that the zine will not be adhering to new york times standards, so go ahead and take creative license with just what “first” means.
