Issue #6 of Richard Kern’s zine Dumb Fucker, previous published under the names The Valium Addict and The Heroin Addict. In producing the zine, Kern gathered a wide community of artists and writers who shared preoccupations with frank and discomforting aestheticization of violence, sex, and drug use amongst the growing cohort of those living at the margins of American society.

This issue of the zine includes a written contribution from Wojnarowicz illustrated with a photograph by Richard Kern. Also includes work by Richard Kern, Julie Hair, Doug Bressler, Ruby Ray, Willy Hayes, Madoka, Amanda Church, Tom Quinn, Nick Martakis, Mazeratti Fey, Al Acker, M. [Montana] Houston, Tom [Tommy] Turner, J.H. Waite, Mary Ruthovsky-Ruskin, and Holly George.
