(Roughly) a year ago I decided that I needed to raise my femme voice in the blog world and throw it out into the already exploding world of queer blogging. I had followed several butch blogs for a year or two, but felt like the femme voice was missing. Maybe, just maybe, I thought to myself…I could be the counter-point. The nail polish to the motor oil. High heeled Mary Janes to the Doc Martins. Pink glossed lips to the strap-on. You get the point.
I had been sitting at bars, concerts, and coffee shops sharing with friends my verbal “Dear Butch … Love, Femme” short clips. It got a few chuckles and then it was suggested I start a blog. I have a writing and social media background, I am not sure why I didn’t think of this before. And so, the blog was born.
The brash and over-opinionated lady who at times tip-toed on the line of judgmental opened a blank blog post and went to work. I never set out to change the world or our small section of the queer lady population. Hopefully I have taught you a few things. Life lessons to assist your swagger or moments of clarity into our coifed breed. And if not, maybe with any luck, I have at least made you laugh.
Thank you for reading my words. Thank you for supporting my work. Thank you for accepting my voice.
