Released in the 1990's, Positron was a hardcore, vegan, straight edge zine when it first appeared. Editor Sean Capone writes about reinventing straight edge as anti-consumerist.

Besides being a straight edge zine, he announced in the article "Queer Not Beer", "For the record, also, it IS queer fucking edge". Positron was one of the publications selected for inclusion in issue six of Outpunk's compilation of queer zines.

Sean Capone, along with Jason, editor of Kill The Robot, and Scott, editor of Let Me Live, formed the queer, straight edge collective "homoXpos" during this time.
