Outside Resources

There are numerous resources that may be visited and looked into.

I want to know more about butches, their experiences, and butch appreciation!

  • Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg
  • Butch Is A Noun by S. Bear Bergman
  • The Last Time I Wore a Dress by Daphne Scholinsky
  • Bulletproof Butches by Chea Villanueva
  • Tomboys!: Tales of Dyke Derring-Do Edited by Lynne Fletcher and Karen Barber
  • The Little Butch Book by Leslea Newman
  • Female Masculinity by Judith Halberstam
  • Diesel Fuel by Pat Califia
  • Butch-Femme

Femmes ❤

  • Restricted Country by Joan Nestle
  • The Femme Mystique by Leslea Newman
  • Femme: Feminists, Lesbians, and Bad Girls by L. Harris and E. Crocker
  • In You, I am by Chrystos
  • Queer Fat Femme


I need help understanding the terms and vocabulary…

I want to find an LGBTQ resource center close to me…

  • Unfortunately, many LGBTQ directories are not kept up to date (some will still be listed below, as there are organizations listed throughout). Several ways of finding an LGBTQ resource center close to you are contacting your state Pride committee. They can find you resources for your region, state, or city. As it is hard to maintain a national directory of organizations, groups, etc., contacting people on a more regional level may prove most effective. The GLBT National Hotline also provides people with information about local resources.
  • For those living in MA, VT, ME, NH, RI, and CT, Pink Pages may be a good resource. They do not only provide queer-friendly listings for everything from auto-body shops to wedding planners, they also list social and support groups.
  • My Out Spirit is a resource for queer spirituality, listing churches, temples, synagogues, mosques, and spiritual gathering places and groups that are accepting and affirming of LGBTQ people


Is there any way I can talk to someone anonymously? Where?

  • The GLBT National Help Center provides free and confidential telephone and internet peer counseling, information, and local resources for gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, and questioning callers throughout the US
  • The Trevor Project offers a 24 hour/day hotline, chatting with trained professionals, and, through the link posted, listings of local resources.
