It was then that his life truly began. From a tiny room in a New York hotel, McDonald published Straight to Hell, a series of chapbooks collecting readers' 'true homosexual experiences'. Through interviews and images, this book tells McDonald's story as a key figure in gay underground history and pioneer of the queer zine scene.
