32 page colour zine with illustrations and text.

Dix Pix looks at the queer male/trans/non-binary body and why it is common for people to send naked pictures via dating apps. The zine takes an experimental approach in its visual style and tackles themes of masculinity, queerness, solitude and the body.

Dix Pix features illustrations of dick pics that were sent to me over the gay dating app Grindr. Along with the images there are text messages and exchanges that also occurred over the app.

Gay dating and hookup apps such as Grindr have changed the way gay people communicate when looking for a partner. Face to face communication is not the first port of call. When using Grindr it’s very common to receive unsolicited pictures of naked people. In Dix Pix I examine the need for the male (and other genders who have a penis) body to be exposed in order to gather attention through dating apps.

The zine features illustrations, text and quotes from interviews.

Designed and hand made by Steven Fraser.

Absolutely loved this zine! Should be read by everyone! Steven also sent me a little mini zine called the joy of missing out and it might be the most relatable thing I’ve read all year! Thank you x

I had no idea the layout of this zine would be a sort of theatrical-type thing, it's phrased as a "performance" but honestly I think it's a really cool way to write a zine! I can't say I've seen anything like it before. I wasn't able to carry out the performance but could still enjoy the writing/atmosphere-building nonetheless!
