Fuck Outside Magazine

All you have to do to get your hands on a diecut is email your name and address to, put “Fuck Outside Magazine” in the subject line and indicate whether you want black or white.

If you find the Outside’s decision to publish this article offensive, we suggest you send an email to the editor of the magazine, Sam Moulton.

His email is, we’re sure he’ll be excited to hear from you.
