The blonde has one half of her hair cut very short, where the other side drapes at length over her shoulders. The black haired woman is hugging the blonde from behind with an almost possessive gaze.]
The Untitled Black Lesbian Elder Project has been selected to exhibit work as a part of the Pop-Up Museum of Queer History - Philadelphia Exhibit on April 21st- May 19, 2012!
Our exhibit will consist of Film Stills featuring Black lesbian elders from the film, as well as small videos where attendees can learn more about the women featured in the film and the production process.
About the The Pop-Up Museum of Queer History: The Pop-Up Museum of Queer History is a grassroots organization that transforms empty spaces into temporary autonomous shrines dedicated to celebrating the rich, long, and largely unknown histories of queer people. We believe that our community – and especially our youth – deserve to know our history. If you don’t know you have a past, how can you believe you have a future? We work with communities across the country to create and promote educational installations, gallery shows, public art, and memorials. We foster ongoing relationships with artists, historians, and organizations exploring facets of queer history. We also nurture an on-going virtual community of queer historians (amateur and professional), bringing together artists and academics to fluoresce brightly and briefly wherever possible.
Pop-Up Philadelphia will run from April 21 - May 19, and will be housed on the ground floor of the William Way Community Center, located at 1315 Spruce St. The show will be open to the public at almost all times the Center is open, though visitors should call ahead. The William Way Community Center is fully accessible. Visit www.waygay.org for more information.

I’m 21, live in New Jersey and enjoy video games, longboarding, playing in my band and my girlfriend.
[Image: A four-panel comic. In the first panel, three women (two butch and one with shoulder-length hair, named Mo, Lois, and Jillian) are walking out of a movie theatre. The two butch women say “Man, did that suck” “Think we can get our money back?” With her hand on the ladies’ room door handle, Jillian says “Not after we sat through the whole damn thing. Wait up, ok? I have to pee.”
In the second panel, Mo is saying to Lois “Lois, I have to go too, but I just wanna wait a minute. I know Jillian’s cool, and she’s done great work with the Avengers and everything, but I dunno… I still feel kinda weird using the bathroom with someone who used to be a man.” Lois replies “Mo! I’m not going to stand around here all night just because you’re having a transphobia attack! Get over it and go pee or we’ll leave without you.”
In the third panel, Jillian is washing her hands as Mo walks out of a stall. A new woman with a ponytail and a purse on her shoulder, who is drying her hands, asks Mo “Excuse me! Aren’t you in the wrong bathroom?” Jillian turns and says “Of course she’s not! Take a closer look, hon!”
In the fourth panel, Mo is speaking to Jillian, who is drying her hands “Uh, thanks Jillian. I’d do the same for you, y’know.” Jillian delivers the punchline “Thanks, but I actually don’t have much of a problem in ladies’ rooms. At least, not since my ‘nobody knows I’m a transsexual’ t-shirt wore out.”]
interesting strip on trans*phobia within the LGBTetc. sphere.
This is one of my favorites! I think I first saw this way back in the day before I looked for resources online. Dykes to Watch Out For is so amazing.
I first ran across this in an Intro to Women’s Studies textbook, interestingly enough. I immediately fell in love with it. I also want a “Nobody Knows I’m Transsexual” t-shirt (or would if I didn’t think wearing it in most public spaces would be dangerous).
Thank you a million times over for image descriptions.

We were being goofy and pretending to be beatniks.

[Image description: art of two women in a sort of Jane-Tarzan scenario; one, light skinned with lots of brown hair, a dark green bra-wrap and loincloth, is looking fierce and a bit puzzled while she perches on a large tree branch; the other girl, who she is holding up in a sitting position by the length of her long, yellow skirt, is tan, brunette, with crossed arms and a scowl towards the viewer.]
Once upon a time…
A little girl wished that her Ladyfriend would look more like Tarzan.
That wish may one day come true.
Or so she has been told.
Submissions are closed for the time being; I’m getting bored of webcam photos of girls, and you probably are too. :D
