gendertrash is a zine/periodical “devoted to the issues & concerns of transsexuals.” Its four issues were published by Mirha-Soleil Ross and Xanthra Phillippa MacKay in Toronto from 1993-1995.

Issues of gendertrash included order forms for a variety of merchandise created by genderpress and other collaborators. This included buttons, informational booklets, films made by Ross, and zine issues. This completed order-form was found in the archive, and has been digitally modified to remove identifying information and include some items missing from the original. Many of the items on the form are accessible digitally through the Canadian Lesbian and Gay Archives digital collections. Click on an item for more information and a link to the digital version!
