“That same inexplicable feeling from the night before returned, and I knew I didn’t want her to leave, so I turned my chivalry up to 11 and made her breakfast, a spinach omelette and a cup of tea. I would soon realize that the inexplicable feeling was love. I was in love with her, and had been the moment that I’d met her. I secretly believed in love at first sight, but could only dream that it was something that could happen to me. I didn’t want her to leave, and she hasn’t.” - Sidra Greene with an excerpt from our Love & Sex Issue ( #4). 💕💕💕@sixidphoto 📷 by @sindayiganza . . #butchisnotadirtyword #butchplease #butchdyke #gender #gendernonconforming #femalemasculinity #queermasculinity #theythem #qpoc #qwoc #gay #gayisokay #gaygaygay #dykesofinstagram #butchesofinstagram at New York, New York

“A butch lives in exile from a country that does not exist. To be butch, you must understand the power of words and refuse to let your heart be murdered by adjective. The fine art of butch is to take your seat at the fire and to unfold your own story - then toss it in, to rise as heat and light” - Claudia Mauro . . Be still my beating butch heart 😍 . #butch #butch #butchisnotadirtyword #queerfam #queer #queerfamily #butchdyke #butchart #dyke #dykestowatchoutfor #queermasculinity #femalemasculinity #gender #genderqueer #gendernonconforming #gaygaygay #lesbiansofinstgram #queersofinstagram #queerelders #instagay #queersofig #portrait #portraitphotography #butchesbelike #ballarat #australia #butchstyle #masculineofcenter #butchesofinstagram #dykeelders #knowyourhistory at New York, New York

Do you know why we’re a print publication? In the age of rapidly disposable content,the internet is too fickle to for the stories of these beautiful butches whom each share some of their most vulnerable, authentic and intimate, thoughts, feelings and experiences with us, the internet does not to them justice. Additionally making these stories so public could potentially open these queer folks up to a tirade of online abuse, which, we do not want and they do not deserve. Thus, whilst print is ridiculously expensive, it is worth it to make this media accessible to the queer community. Anyway, to end the rant we’ve got free shipping on Issue 4 anywhere in the USA whilst stocks last, we’re making room for Issue 5 friends !!

“The world’s changing but there are still so many horrible people in it. I have a very strong feminine side but I also have a very strong masculine side, and some people don’t know how to deal with that. I run into issues all the time at work and in public bathrooms, people want to put labels on everything, but I don’t think it’s as simple as that” - An Issue 2 excerpt from @kats_nine_lives . . . Um.

“The 70’s was the era of the ‘gay murders’, young gay men and rent boys who’s bodies were found in parkland around the city. Killed after being bashed and raped. Not a great town to be openly gay in” - Sam King reflects on growing up gay in rural Australia in the 70’s. (Swipe right for preview, link in bio for purchase).

“How butch people love and have sex is not talked about or is viewed as repulsive, especially to those outside of our communities. We have to rely on one another to engage in critical conversation about where our intentions are coming from and what impacts they are creating. For me, actively engaging with our communities and honoring our elders are some of the first ways we can work towards our collective liberation” - @carlyriot from Issue #4 ♥️ 📷 by @esthergoodboy . . . #butch #butchisnotadirtyword #butchappreciationday #butchdyke #butchlesbian #queer #queermasculinity #femalemasculinity #gender #gendernonconforming #butchesofinstagram #dykesofinstagram #dykestowatchoutfor #lgbtqia #queersofinstagram #elvis #portland #pdx #portrait #queerportrait #portraitphotography at Portland, Oregon

Happy Solstice Ya’ll ! This year we’ve featured butch folks in our publication from Australia, India, Philippines, UK, USA, South Africa, Germany, New Zealand and beyond! Through 2019 we’re committed to continuing to share the experiences of a vast array of butches across the globe, to work to connect with those who need to be reminded that there’s a community out there who see and support you, in those times where as a butch, it can feel impossible to find any value in yourself. Here’s to charging onwards into 2019 and continuing to work toward creating a platform for our extended and less visible butch communities to be seen and heard. ⚒💙🌎 @f_k_m_p 📷 by @_modiba . #intermationalbutchcartel #butch #qpoc #qwoc #butchisnotadirtyword #queermasculinity #femalemasculinity #gender #gendernonconforming #dykestowatchoutfor #queersofig #gay #gayisok #gaygaygay #lesbiansofinstgram #andro #androstyle #queer #queersofig #queersofinstagram #butchesbelike #butchesofinstagram #handsomegay #queerportrait #portrait #portraitphotography #butchappreciationday #butchappreciationmonth #dykesagainsttransphobia #butchappreciationlife #printisnotdead at Johannesburg, Gauteng
