ALFALFA is a gay alphabet. It deploys a disarmingly simple structure to create an exhilaratingly complex play of meanings. Each letter of the alphabet is introduced against a blue marbled background in the time honoured formula, "A is for", "B is for". Next there is an image of what the letter stands for.
