The Butch Monologues

23 Feb - 1 Mar 2019

A powerful and often humorous collection of secret stories exploring sexuality, vulnerability and desire.


Based on the true stories of butch-identified women living in the UK, Europe, USA, Caribbean and now Australia, this work offers fresh language and intonation on butch beginnings, butch desire and desirability, butch bravado and vulnerability, butch-on-femme sex, butch-on-butch sex, switches, stones, butch as a trap, the butch body, violence, heroes and clothing.
