The Burning Times was a queer punkzine published in Australia by Richard Watts.

The first issue of The Burning Times came out in the 1990's in February of 1995, and six issues were released . The zine featured interviews with bands such as Pansy Division, De-Rugulator, Tedium, Mouthful, Tuff Muff, Kill Krush Destroy, Propaghandi and musicians such as Matt Thomas of the band The Mavis's, Chris Debono of Silpheed, Skin of Skunk Anansie, and personalities such as Kathleen Hannah, G.B. Jones and Anonymous Boy.

The zine also covered events such the Dirtybird Queercore Festival in San Francisco, Annual Melbourne Punk Pub Crawl, reviews of shows and recordings and personal writings and rants on topics like coming out, punk's queer past, queer heroes, body image and male rape.

The zine also featured artwork by artists Carrie McNinch,Jennifer Camper, Flea, Tim Growcott, G.B. Jones and Anonymous Boy.

Although international in scope, the zine provided a valuable snapshot of the queer, punk and music scenes in Australia in the 19990's.
