Issue #5 cover

I Hate This Part of Texas is a perzine by John Gerken of New Orleans, LA.

The title was a line of graffiti the author read at a rest stop in Oklahoma. The zine addresses queer and feminist issues through a number of personal anecdotes. Several issues have addressed Hurricaine Katrina, notably Issue #7, which was a split with Keep Loving Keep Fighting #7.

John Gerken was one of the participating zinesters on the Y'herd Me Zine Tour of the east coast in November of 2002, reading from I Hate This Part of Texas. The selections read from the zine were later documented in the compilation zine Y'herd Me, which included the work of all the touring zinesters.

I Hate This Part of Texas was one of twenty zines featured in the anthology book by Ethan Stories Care Forgot: An Anthology of New Orleans Zines.
