Porch Beers issue 2 details the ups and downs of life in West Virginia, where I spent my first 33 years. I talk about folklore, food, supernatural beliefs, Dolly Parton, and local band The Argument. I also write about why I left, and why I wouldn't rule out returning. As always, these topics are seen through a queer trans punk lens.
Issue #2 is black and white photo copied and 5.5 X 8.5. It's 44 pages total.
Elliott Stewart spent most of his life in Huntington, WV and surrounding areas, minus a few hiatuses. Elliott has been making zines since he was thirteen. These days, his writing is slice of life storytelling through a critical, personal-is-political lens. He's especially fascinated by the intersection of people's personal experiences with pop culture and "low brow" entertainment. Some of his influences include Harvey Pekar, John Hodgman, Hanif Abdurraqib, and Nick Hornby. He loves highlighting the Mountain State and Huntington in particular in his writing, from colloquialisms and a love of hot dogs to larger values like community and DIY.
