Persistence : All Ways Butch and Femme


Product Description

In the summer of 2009, butch writer and storyteller Ivan Coyote and gender researcher and femme dynamo Zena Sharman wrote down a wish-list of their favourite queer authors; they wanted to continue and expand the butch-femme conversation. The result is Persistence: All Ways Butch and Femme. The stories in these pages resist simple definitions. The people in these stories defy reductive stereotypes and inflexible categories. The pages in this book describe the lives of an incredible diversity of people whose hearts also pounded for some reason the first time they read or heard the words "butch" or "femme." Contributors such as Jewelle Gomez ( The Gilda Stories'), Thea Hillman ( Intersex'), S. Bear Bergman ( Butch is a Noun'), Amber Dawn ( Sub Rosa'), and Anna Camilleri ( Brazen Femme') explore the parameters, history, and power of a multitude of butch and femme realities. It's a raucous, insightful, sexy, and sometimes dangerous look at what butch and femme can mean in today's ever-shifting gender landscape. Includes a foreword by the renowned femme author Joan Nestle.
