Butches with Cute Animals

Kristen started it.

Submit photos or videos of yourself, your lover, or your friends along with cute animals … though please make sure you have their permission to post their image online first.

People have asked about the “butch” part … it doesn’t matter to her if you identify as butch or not, she is not on this side of the computer assessing the photos about whether or not that person is “butch enough.” Mostly, it’s a self-selection thing: if you’re willing to have your image on there, she’s willing to put it up! You can (as others have) write in the comments that you don’t identify as butch, if you’d like to specify that.

It’s been going nuts! She’s already had more than 100 submissions of photos with hottie masculine-of-center folks and cutie animals. This is the kind of thing I was intending to do with Queer Eye Candy, which, by the way, has pretty much expired at this point. I put that together just before Tumblr really took off, and now that that’s around, the image-submission sites are so different. In fact, I run fuckyeahbutches.tumblr.com, and am always looking for submissions if you’d like to contribute.

But meanwhile, check out butchesholdinganimals.tumblr.com if you need a little pick-me-up, or something to make you go “awww!” in the middle of your day, or a little bit of swooning, or if you need some good fashion tips. There are lots of many good shots on there already. You might even recognize some queer celebrities!

PS: While I’m pimping Kristen out (no, not in that way), take a look at her interview on AfterEllen about her new baking business, Kitchentop Catering.

    Whoa, I already reposted this all over facebook without even knowing it was Kristen’s project. I love it — although I have to say, Butches With Babies might be even better. Plus, it’s alliterative.
