"- Uh... So is that a no on the roach special, then? - Yeah. But if you're ever running a deal on spermicide, give us a call." ~ Extrait de "l'essentiel des GOUINES À SUIVRE (1998-2008)" par @alisonbechdel, actuellement en librairie.🏳️‍🌈 ♀️ #lessentieldesgouinesasuivre #gouinesasuivre #gouines #dykestowatchoutfor #dykes #dtwof #alisonbechdel #comicstrip #romangraphique #graphicnovel #lgbt #lgbtq #gay #lesbiennes #lesbians #queer #feminisme #feminism #metoo #editionsmemepasmal

I definitely didn’t appreciate the opportunity I had to read this in college. This time I let myself dive in. My first experience with Bechdel’s work, and I really liked it. It felt a bit like a crash course in psychoanalysis, combined with a memoir in which the author uses literary theory to understand her life. It was an interesting experience, bouncing between references to psychology texts and literary references with a desperation to find patterns and meaning in life through the writings and findings of others. From a publishing perspective, it was quite fascinating because this is a meta book—a book about the writing of itself. The timeline was a bit hard to follow; a lot of jumping around and experiencing things out of order. The drawings were excellent, though, and added a lot to the storytelling. #alisonbechdel #areyoumymother #amreading #bookstagram #books #graphicnovel #comics #dykestowatchoutfor

A collection of classic comic strips from the author of Fun Home/creator of the Bechdel test. You’ll laugh, cry, and cheer for these believable characters as they navigate gay adulthood in the 80s-early 2000s. With a little bit of tongue-in-cheek hyperbole, these comics truly capture the feeling of the times. Mature content! 📰 #alisonbechdel #bechdeltest #dykestowatchoutfor #lesbianclassic #comics #queercomics #gaycomics #gaybooks #lesbianbooks #feministcomics #feministmedia #feministliterature #lesbianliterature #villagevoice #lesbianhistory #feministhistory #comic #comicbooks

for many years i have been struggling with being in what i feel is an “in between space”. of being accepted into straight society as a good gay under a half muted don’t ask don’t tell rule and every now and then coming into contact with unapologetic gay pride. i’ve been struggling with this idea of being a good gay versus being a bad gay and i recently read a post articulating how i feel. it went something like this, a good gay is a gay who is by all definitions straight, they don’t talk about being gay, they like the same things as straight people and they never push their gayness in your face. bad gays are the campy fags and the aggressive bulldaggers, the gays who are covered in rainbows and march in skimpy clothes or leathers at the gay parade. these bad gay are the one i’m interested in, at first i was afraid to relate gay culture so much because i didn’t want to be a bad gay who’s whole personality was about being gay but as time has passed every opportunity i’ve been around other unapologetic proud gay people it’s been like a breath of fresh air, i can feel the corset of whale bones loosening around my chest and i feel a little more like myself. these bad gays are the gays who are fighting to be visible in a society that wants them to conform and those are the gays i want to be seen with. i want to be a proud nonconforming bad gay. so when it comes to this page, it’s about celebrating us butch dykes, studs, bois and all variants of female masculinity. so please feel welcome #femalemasculinity #butch #dyke #lesbian #pride #lesbiansofinsta #dykestowatchoutfor #BUTCHBrisbane

Here's a new drawing I've made of Alison Bechdel's Mo and Lois from Dykes to Watch Out For. ^~^ Somehow I just suddenly figured out how to shade digitally. This isn't finished yet, I'm planning on drawing an actual background later but when I drew this I was so tired I just couldn't. Also I didn't know their eye colors so I just chose randomly.. Note to @alisonbechdel if she sees this: If you see this I hope it's okay with you that I've drawn your characters in my style. I haven't seen any fanart of your characters before and it made me wonder if I should share this drawing or not, so if for any reason you want me to take it down I will. ^~^ ~~~ . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . ~~~ #anime #manga #fanart #draw #drawing #draws #drawings #art #artist #dykestowatchoutfor #artistoninstagram #dtwof #digitalart #digitalartist #digital #coloring #sketch #sketching #sketches #animeart #animeartist #animesketch #sketchbook #artbook

“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

When you develop a story idea, let it pass the Bechdel-Wallace test first: . 1. The movie has to have at least two women in it, 2. who talk to each other, 3. about something besides a man. . 4. When there are several female characters, do they all have a name? . The writing softwares Highland 2, WriterDuet and Final Draft 11 can help. . #BechdelWallaceTest #AlisonBechdel #DykesToWatchOutFor #1985 #ComicStrip #Story #Idea #Women #Writing #Screenwriting #Story #Storytelling #Filmmaking #MovieProduction #Directing #Actresses #FinalDraft #FinalDraft11

The Alison Bechdel exhibit that I visited in Vermont came to Jersey!! I always love seeing displays of Bechdel’s work. It makes me feel like I have a future. Also I did a side by side comparison of my work in progress vs. Bechdel’s work in progress and we’re pretty similar in our process

Another Saturday, another @queerfayre, this time at @rvtofficial where there were wonderful people (@butchinstitute, @jedphoenixoflondonfashion, @katyharrad) with wonderful stalls. I have come away overloaded with gifts to myself including interesting books, some of which are new to me, some of which I am looking forward to reading again and owning for myself. #queerfayre #dykestowatchoutfor #purpleprose #radclyffehall #gender. I was also fortunate to have great company in the form of @bitter_bisexual. at The Royal Vauxhall Tavern

Yesterday was #transgenderdayofremembrance But the fight continues everyday. The author and cartoonist #alisonbechdel was one of my first butch role models. Her comics has always given me strength to be who i want to be. She has been telling stories from so many different perspectives of the LGBTQ-community and are not afraid to tackle difficult subjects as transphopia within the community. Her portrait of the young transgirl Britney in the later chapters of #dykestowatchoutfor always brings me to tears. The picture above is from her brilliant novel Fun Home when young Alison identity with another woman for the first time.
