Fertile La Toyah Jackson Magazine: Scandalous, unhinged gossip, glamour tips, and self-promotion by a posse of black drag queens known as the Afro Sisters (who also perform as a band). Fertile is the cover girl, and Vaginal Davis edits. They rate bars and male strippers and offer their own "Queen's Glossary" when not offering dirt on teen Stars that the Hollywood Kids would never touch, even if they believed it. A veritable John Waters film of a skinny 'zine.
