1979. chain letter by tENTATIVELY, a cONVENIENCE

In 1979, the area that I lived in in Baltimore, MD, was a (pre-AIDS) sexually wild area filled with transexuals, drag queens, massage parlors (ie: fronts for prostitution), porn theaters, & Turkish baths (ie: places where anonymous gay sex happened). It was common for extremely lurid full color ads for gay porn to be placed under windshield wipers of cars. I wrote this parody of a chain letter specifically to also place under the windshield wipers to add to the general hilarity & chaos. Doing so was a part of my seeding what I called "Mystery Catalysts" & was an experiment in disseminating my writing in a way outside of the ghetto of established norms like publishing & readings.
