Butches – we got butches! Meet real life butches from around the world in The Butch Lesbians of the 50s, 60s, and 70s Coloring Book. There are barroom butches, marrying butches, activist butches, cross-dressing car thief butches, punk butches, baby butches, debutant butches, publishing butches, and more. There are butch mothers, political activists, feminists, scene-stealers, filmmakers, girlfriend-stealers, writers, photographers, opium smokers, librarians, and renegades gracing these pages. Building upon the success of The Butch Lesbians of the 20s, 30s, and 40s Coloring Book, and the ensuing community coloring parties held throughout the US, Avery Cassell and Jon Macy usher their readers into the 50s, 60s, and 70s with an embarrassment of butch riches. The Butch Lesbians of the 50s, 60s, and 70s Coloring Book offers not only a love letter to mid-century Butches, but a detailed map to our bold and beautiful history; color the butches, then turn to the back and read their stories. Our delectable cover butch is Cherifa Bakalia, the first woman grain seller in the souks of Tangier, Morocco, and writer Jane Bowles’ lover for 20 years.
