Homopunk World is a zine published in New York by Anonymous Boy.

Homopunk World first appeared in the late 1990's. The first issue came out in 1997 and featured interviews with Pansy Division and Anne Franne of Aunt Franne zine, who appears on the cover with Anonymous Boy. The second issue, released in 1999, includes interviews with Joe Butcher of the band Ludichrist, Abby Densen, and G.B. Jones, who also appears on the cover with Anonymous Boy. Issue three, with an Anonymous Boy drawing on the cover, came out in 2000 and featured an interview with C. Bard Cole, editor of Riot Boy and Tattooed Love Boys zines, and an argument conducted through letters between Anonymous Boy and Jeff Bale, editor of Hit List and former Maximum Rock 'N' Roll writer. The queercore band Limp Wrist, as drawn by Anonymous Boy, was on the cover of Issue four, released in 2004, with an interview inside. Issue five also appeared in 2004, and included interviews with Adam of the website 'Queerpunks.com' and Bejay Rose of the NYC Queer Skin and Punk party M8.

Several issues also include a special "Homo Punk Pioneers" page: Faebhean Kwest from the band The Raped appears in Issue two, Issue four features Lance Loud of the band The Mumps and Issue five presents Phranc from the bands Nervous Gender, Catholic Discipline and solo artist. Other features have included "The Most Homophobic Record Ever Made", and reviews of queercore CDs and fanzines. The zine is still ongoing.
