Coloring Butch Lesbians at Bookshow
Last night was a perfect night in NELA. After yoga, I headed over to BOOKSHOW for their Coloring Night. On deck last evening was a selection of pages from Stacked Deck Press Butch Lesbians Coloring Books. These coloring books (there are two of them, broken down by decades 20's, 30's & 40's and 50's 60's & 70's). The books are jam packed with beautifully handsome butches spanning the decades. You'll definitely want to get your hands on a copy.
The organizers had snacks, wine, pages from the book, colored pens and created a great environment. It was lovely to see stories being exchanged and some really great inter-generational dialogue happening that was sparked by the pages/butches in the books. Bookshow even raffled off a coloring book for one of the attendees! I met some really great folks and got invited to one of Bookshow's many monthly events Collage & Cry! Collage & Cry is a donation based community night where you can make a collage (materials provided!) and crying is welcome. Sounds like a great night for this emo Pisces gal.
