In at the deep end
Morgan County Citizen newspaper editor Patrick Yost has no formal design training and is having to learn design on the job. He launched the free newspaper in Madison, GA, to compete with the Madisonian newspaper, where he had been managing editor. Yost uses Macintosh computers with Photoshop and Quark to produce the newspaper. Design professional Katy Wallace created the look, with features and news clearly separated and the contents promoted on the front page. Yost hopes to learn from the publishing experiences of Jill Tigner and Mike Venable, editors of The Phenix Citizen of Phenix City, AL.

Skirting and suiting stereotypes: representations of marginalized sexualities in Japan
The Japanese terms 'okama' and 'onabe' refer to gay men and lesbians, respectively. Japanese culture marginalizes okama and onabe through a system of representation that associates them with ridicule. Okama and onabe are not explicitly ignored, which would be a form of implicit recognition. Rather, they are presented always in a context that contrasts them with images of what men and women are supposed to be, namely masculine and feminine. An analysis of the institutionalization of representing okama and onabe as marginalized members of society in Japan is presented.
