Plot
A unique collection that brings together writing, photography, artwork, and poetry about lesbian butch and femme gender, Femme/Butch: New Considerations Of The Way We Want To Go distinguishes itself by celebrating a wide span of intellectual engagement, from personal reflection to traditional academic work, including many interdisciplinary approaches. Also, in addition to more "serious" writing, lesbian comediennes offer their irreverent takes on the femme/butch gender roles. Their perspectives are almost never found in academic publications, but what Lea DeLaria, Vickie Shaw, Karen Williams, and other edgy comics have to say about femme/butch sexuality deserves to be heard. With chapters focused on lesbians in Chinese cultures and on the emerging lesbian community in Bulgaria, this book explores the role of femme/butch identification in cultures without recognisable lesbian institutions.
