“Hello, my name is not lady,”Â Butch Voices conference, Oakland, CA.
Water bottle decor above sported by (local pro nanny!) Red, who says she got this from girlsnotchicks.com. Even if I couldn’t find a sticker looking like this one at their site (did I remember wrong? I very well could have remembered wrong), I totally enjoyed being reminded of their fantastic coloring books Girls Are Not Chicks and Girls Will Be Boys Will Be Girls. A Â must for any thinking artist’s coloring book collection.
With the grace of sufficient childcare in upcoming days, I hope to render something about the conference sometime soon. Â Meanwhile, I can just say I am thankful for my one day at it, and for the hundreds of folks it drew from far and wide, people who daily move through a largely uncomprehending world with brave honesty and full hearts.
