Fanorama (also known as Fanorama Society and Fanorama Cabal) is a Rhode Island-based zine and zine distro produced by journalist and activist REB (b. Richard E. Bump, May 25, 1956, Portland, ME, USA).

Jones and Bruce LaBruce), and the Toronto scene from which J.D.s came. Initially a punk-edged collage of gay porn and commentary, REB soon added a strong, anti-assimilationist political voice to the mix, turning the zine into an artful version of the weekly "Queerbeat" column he contributed to Rhode Island's alternative arts rag, The NicePaper. The Fanorama tag line at the time became, "For those who want a little smut with their politics, or a little politics with their smut."

As REB's political leanings grew heated, Fanorama began to generate controversy, particularly as it addressed racism and sexism in the gay mainstream establishment; one detractor in the media called REB a "kiddie pornographer-turned-moral watchdog". During this period, REB was instrumental in leading protests against a local gay bar over a management-led racist incident - a battle which would take center stage in the gay politics of Rhode Island for the better part of a year. Despite what he began to call his "infamy," REB's popularity as a personality grew, and he was invited to emcee a mid-90'S Rhode Island Gay Pride celebration; though accepting the position, he would take its organizers to task in later years for the increasing commercialism of the event.

Over the course of its publication, Fanorama has run interviews and photo essays with such queer counter-culture heroes as comic book artist Robert Kirby, editor of the comic zine Boy Trouble; punk rockers Pansy Division; Scott Treleaven, editor of This Is The Salivation Army; Tommy Ace of the controversial AIDS humor zine, Diseased Pariah News; and Neil Edgar of Wiener Society. It has been dubbed "the Grandaddy of Queerzines" by Factsheet 5. After publishing an issue in which REB mourned his break-up with future Juha frontman Collin Clay, Fanorama took a turn towards pagan spirituality, influenced greatly by his work with the Radical Faeries.

The current incarnation of Fanorama is essentially a prisoners' rights magazine (though it retains the porn and spiritual angles), influenced initially by the stories prisoners sent to its "Letters" section. The relationships REB developed with prisoners over time, notably zine editor Neil Edgar who has contributed to every issue since 2001, were also the impetus for Fanorama to become a publisher of prisoner-authored works. Issue 24 was a split issue with prisoner-penned zine Left Back and imprisoned zine editors are frequently featured. This has led to its constituency expanding from its queer following to include an anarcho-punk/activist readership, particularly since having caught the attention of Maximum Rock 'N' Roll and Punk Planet, and more recently gaining the praises of headbanger favorite, Metal Maniac. REB told Punk Planet in 2005: "After doing my zine for over 12 years, after publishing and distributing countless inmate-produced publications, after corresponding with literally hundreds of prisoners, the only folks who ever made me feel 'unsafe' were folks in the free world."

The film division of Fanorama has included REB's documentary Queer Rage (chronicling events leading up to and coming out of a riot at the RI State House) and art films Nocturne In E Flat, Jerk Off, Waltz of the Flowers, and the upcoming 13 Boys. Shot mostly on Super-8 film or video, they have been played at queer indie film festivals across the United States. REB also facilitates workshops and is a speaker on the issues of zine making, queer rights, and prisoners' rights. Excerpts from Fanorama have been published in the gay-oriented encyclopedia Out In All Directions (Warner Books), That's Revolting: Queer Strategies For Resisting Assimilation (Soft Skull Press), and Afterwords: Real Sex From Gay Men's Diaries.
