Original Plumbing is the premier quarterly print magazine dedicated to the culture and lifestyle of transgender men. Founded in September of 2009 by Amos Mac and Rocco Kayiatos in San Francisco, Original Plumbing continues to be independently published and distributed out of Brooklyn, NY. The magazine is dedicated to documenting diversity within the trans male community through photographic portraits and essays, personal narratives, and interviews. Original Plumbing gives the trans male community the opportunity to speak for and about themselves, taking the focus away from bodies and medical transition, and transferring it to a greater experience of their lives.
ORIGINAL PLUMBING #18: BEYOND BATHROOMS
With discussions around the challenges, laws and activism that go hand in hand with public restroom drama some trans people face daily, we also focus on self-care and love in what sometimes feels like a less-than-friendly time to be trans in the world. Trans activists, artists, lawyers, students and humans share their stories.
