This is why I’ve been so stoked about the revised edition of the Butch Lesbians of the 50s, 60s, and 70s Coloring Book. I adore the brand spankin’ new design with the art and the biographies on facing pages. Read about your historic butch as you tenderly color her. Bibliographies are at the bottom of the page.
AND, there’s a page and a half of butch resources in the back of the book, including recommended reading materials and fashion resources.
It’s here! Look for the revised, second edition of the Butch Lesbians of the 50s, 60s, and 70s Coloring Book is now available from Stacked Deck Press and on Amazon!
Bigger, badder, brainier, and butcher than ever, now with a fantabulous supplemental butch resource guide!
It’s butchariffic! We’re out-of-stock of Stacked Deck Press’ Butch Lesbians of the 50s, 60s,and 70s Coloring Book and are gearing up for a second edition…and the second edition will be bigger, badder, smarter, and butcher than the first one. Keep your eyeballs peeled for further information. (Rainbow-tastic butch Margo Rivera-Weiss as drawn by Sonya Saturday and colored by Avery Garland Cassell)
Scout and I were two butches that were in love and couldn’t keep our hands off of one another. She and I’d been shacking up for a year now, but the bloom was not off the blossom, so to speak. Age makes for passion and the experience to know how to act on it. We were both over 50 with decades of sexual intrigue under our belts, and had a heated sex life, full of intrigue and mystery. One of our earliest surprises had been when I discovered that I wasn’t only a bottom, but I was also a switch. It was all Scout’s fault and it happened early on when we were flirting and trading what turned us on. She told me that she loved having her hair pulled during sex, but neglected to mention that the slightest tug of her silver pompadour sent her directly into subspace. Do not pass go, do not collect $200.
“I don’t understand!” Scout’s blue eyes got rounder and rounder as we snuggled together in bed. She looked so sweetly vulnerable. That lost small animal look in her eyes combined with her come drying on my wrist made me fall even a little more in love. I felt like a paternal, ferocious mountain lion protecting a fawn from the big, bad wolf.
Gertrude Stein and Alice B. Toklas are going to International Ms Leather this year…and our very own Jessica Bogac-Moore will be showing the twosome around! Visit Dorian Katz AKA Poppers the Pony at her booth to pick up your own free Gertie and Alice postcard from Stacked Deck Press. Dorian will have butch coloring books for sale too.
Was Alice really a femme power bottom? We think so. Gertrude’s writing is known for stream-of-consciousness and word play, and had many works with obvious or hidden queer sub context. We all love “As a Wife Has a Cow A Love Story” the best…with its coy references to giving Alice orgasms. Gertrude Stein liked giving Alice orgasms – she called it ‘making a cow come out’. Throughout their 36-year long marriage, they exchanged innumerable lovey nicknames; Alice was gay, kitten, pussy, baby, queen, cherubim, and cake, while Gertrude was king, husband, hubbie, mount fattie, and fattuski, and littered their apartment with mash notes to one another. Was their deliriously happy love affair their most sublime creation?
