Life and Times of Butch Dykes : Gertrude Stein
The Life and Times of Butch Dykes is B&D Press series of fanzines about the lives and times of amazing women who could be considered icons against heteronormativity, in their very personal and unique ways. They're from different places/spaces and yet have as a common ground the fact that they're all accomplished creators, in work and life. They were and are brave people who tried to be authentic and faithful to what they perceived as their true identity. Gertrude Stein was an American hero, one full of contradictions. She was at the center of European avant-garde, and is considered one of the first novelists to touch gay themes. Her life and work is celebrated in this little tome through hilarious anecdotes and tales of Stein and her lifetime lover, Alice Toklas.
