BUTCHES CALENDAR (2021)


About: A calendar celebrating the beauty and diversity of the butch community.

Skills and Processes: layout design, printing



background


When lockdown came in, I started to desperately miss going to butch-centred club nights and seeing queer people around me. This was doubly frustrating when I sought some sort of queer masculinity representation in cinema and galleries: the queer films released were almost all about white feminine lesbians, and the Masculinities exhibition at the Barbican had all of one mention of trans masculinity. I decided to celebrate butches by asking my friends and networks to appear in a calendar featuring a butch every month. I made sure to include butches of a variety of genders, gender presentations, ethnic backgrounds and skin tones, abilities and locations. I included an interview with each butch featured as a celebration too of different versions and understandings of butchness. I donated all the profits beyond printing and postage to the Outside Project, a shelter for LGBTQ houseless people, and raised £500 in total.
