Persistence characters ↠ 100 Butch and femme can mean in today’s ever shifting gender landscape with one eye on the past and the other on what is to comeIncludes a foreword by Joan Nestle renowned femme author and editor of The Persistent Desire A Femme Butch Reader a landmark anthology originally published in 1992Ivan E Coyote is the author of seven books including the novel Bow Grip an American Library Association Stonewall Honor Book and a long time muser on the trappings of the two party gender systemZena Sharman is the assistant director of Canada's national Institute of Gender and Heal. This thick collection of essays and manifestoes with some poems short fiction and brief autobiographies mixed in is a current report on the diversity of ueer gender identities in the twenty first century Its title is similar to that of an earlier book The Persistent Desire A Femme Butch Reader originally published in 1992 Joan Nestle a legendary femme writer who remembers the early Gay Rights movement edited the first anthology As she says in the foreword to the current bookWhen Ivan and Zena told me of their soon to be published collection which you now hold in your hands I did not react well As she explains the title seemed too close to that of her own book However Nestle eventually calmed down She came to believe that the current book like the earlier one represents a certain zeitgeistThe voices of another generation of other cultural positions new possibilities of gender discourse and erotic adventuring are presented here and these extend in complex ways the passionate and embattled conversation of the now out of print Persistent Desire The cover image of the current paperback says it all a drawing of an androgynous looking brown person of unclear ethnicity seems to be looking into a mirror as she applies lipstick fuschia slightly darker than the pink background to herhis full lips This person is either contemplating her own image or that of the viewer The artist Elisha Lim has said with lines and colour what the other contributors say in many wordsAll the pieces in this book are worth reading but some than others Besides Joan Nestle lesbians of the Old Guard who were out in the era of the Stonewall Riots of 1969 are represented by Jewelle Gomez Victoria Brownworth and Jeanne Cordova These voices from a time when butch and femme identities seemed mandatory in most gaylesbian bars all lament the attempt of the lesbian feminism of the 1970s80s to simply erase sex roles as relics of patriarchal thinking They also comment on the mainstreaming of the LGBT community in our time and the effect this has had on gender identity In A Butch Roadmap editor Ivan E Coyote writes movingly of herhis sense of being exiled by the Pride Committee of Winnipeg when they tried to make Pride Week family friendly by banning extremists including drag ueens and butch women Among the younger contributors there are uite a few Canadians This is probably not surprising for a publication from a Canadian press but it seems unusual for the topic Zoe Whittall award winning novelist who writes about 20 somethings in Toronto brilliantly contrasts an older closeted butch writer with a younger comfortable with Facebook femme writer on a book tour in a short story A Patch of Bright Flowers The argument between the two writers serves as foreplay and they agree not to write about what will happen between them after the hotel room door closes in the last paragraphAnother award winning Toronto writer Nairne Holtz writes sensibly about being the femme in a long term relationship with a lover who is sometimes mistaken for a man In her essay Slide Rules she says What makes one person butch and another femme in a couple is hard to pin down yet easy to recognize A third award winning Canadian novelist Amber Dawn writes movingly about being both femme and a sex worker in To All the Butches I Loved Between 1995 and 2005 An Open Letter about Selling Sex Selling Out and Soldiering on Jeanne Cordova includes a graph named A Post Trans Butch Continuum after referring to Karl Marx s comment that technology defines the direction of social change In her youth even the most masculine of female born people could not have defined themselves as transmen because transitioning from female to male via hormones and surgery just wasn t possible then Some of the contributors seem so gender fluid including Elaine Miller who coins the term futch for someone who is femme and butch by turns or simultaneously that the exact meaning of femme or butch in their conceptual worlds seems unclear as is their difference from 1970s lesbian feminists who advocated androgyny for all Perhaps the difference between old style androgyny and new style genderueerness has to do with acceptance of those whose conception of a lesbian lifestyle is different from one s ownThe FEMME SHARK MANIFESTO in capital letters by Leah Lakshmi Piepzna Samarasinha is a rousing call to arms and a definition of fierce ueer femininity FEMME SHARKS WILL RECLAIM THE POWER AND DIGNITY OF FEMALENESS BY ANY MEANS NECESSARY WE RE GIRLS BLOWN UP TURNED INSIDE OUT AND REMIXED This piece is notably anti racist as well as anti misogynistSpace does not allow me to do justice to this book It needs to be read aloud discussed and debated It will not be the last word on gender identity in lesbian space but it seems unlikely to be become outdated any time soon It covers a very large territory both geographically and philosophically

Persistence characters ↠ 100 Lambda Literary Award finalistAmerican Library Association Stonewall Honor BookIn 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 ueer 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. This is an anthology of writings on femme butch and It looks at how these identities have evolved and what they mean to individuals With an excellent forward by Joan Nestle and two fantastic editors Zena Sharman and Ivan E Coyote I was very excited for this anthology As a young person in Vancouver Coyote s novels represented an universe I dreamed of accessing I remembered the euphoria at seeing how my high school librarians loved them However it took me this long to finally pick up a Coyote Or rather an anthology edited by them Coyote s two essays did not disappoint nor did Sharman s essay I thoroughly enjoyed others as well There were some ones that were either chalk full of transphobia or painful liberalism so I cannot think to rate this above three stars Despite essays in this anthology contradicting others and some frustrating as hell reads the beauty of this anthology is not lost on me I recommend all femmes butches bois and masc of centre Canadians read this While it does include American writers I do think the experience is enhanced when you are Canadian as most of the writers are and because it s so lovely to find a Canadian LGBT piece of literature Overall a satisfying read that taught me a lot and made me reconsider what I know about femme and butch
