I’ve experimented with different identity terms over the years, and ‘butch’ is one that I come back to over and over again. I currently use butch to describe my presentation, as an adjective more often than as a noun.

The Illustrated Gentleman: 2011 Calendar

January 9, 2011  |  reviews  |  3 Comments

You can still pick up a copy of the 2011 calendar The Illustrated Gentleman by artist Elisha Lim.

“A 12 month calendar of handsome dandy queers from January to December. Full colour images and comics feature sartorial queer style, shopping anecdotes and strategies, and a celebration of walking proud in what you wear. The comics feature excerpts from “The Illustrated Gentleman” and “100 Butches” and contain a hand-drawn monthly schedule for each month. It is a quaint, trim 5.5″x7.5″ on glossy calendar stock.”

They sent Butch Lab a few images from the calendar to entice us:

Butch was the first way I ever really felt seen, or desired. Butch is how I was recognized, and it's how I was made. I love many of the ways of butchness, and even the ones I really do not love I can at least understand. The part of me that is a butch - not a butch lesbian or a butch woman but a butch as its own whole and true thing - is both the toughest and the tenderest part.

"I don't have to fix cars or even be tough. I'm not tough, I cry at dog food commercials, I cry on the subway. I like that part of myself, and I'm glad as I've gotten older that I've been able to move away from needing to pretend to be the strong and silent type (which I ain't) in order to be butch."

"I'm a gay butch, I'm attracted to other butches. That seems to immediately abandon a lot of butch stereotypes. Domineering, possessing or even providing for a feminine person doesn't profit me, and I hope I can always confront any accompanying butch sexism, in myself and my surroundings. I'm a proudly feminist butch."

"Butch also has a ballsy feel and while not necessarily rough and tough, it can be and it can be prone to a little anger. It's adventurous and playful, not overly ticklish. Can be emotionally sensitive but not too physically sensitve."
