My Butch Career: Esther Newton’s Memoir

Finally, I looked down at the floor and mumbled, “I think I might be a homosexual.” The doctor considered while he took this in. My heart beat frantically. It seemed I must be struck dead, that the stucco walls of his house would hate me, crush me. This was in the spring of 1957. The Doctor said...

What’s in a Butch’s Pockets?

Is it just me, or do all butches, soft or otherwise, carry alotta stuff in their pockets? My sweetheart has chronically empty pockets. I don’t understand how anyone can live that way.

Still Butch After All These Years

Don’t Call Me Butch!

The Missing Identifier

The Missing Identifier

I consider myself gender fluid or gender neutral; a little of both and a lot of neither. Some days I am in the men’s pants, some days I am in the pumps.  Most days I should be wearing both (not a good look mind you). If I choose the pants I am denying the pumps […]
