I cannot put down the book Stone Butch Blues by Leslie Feinberg. It's heart wrenching to say the least and it makes me actually feel a little PROUD of where we are as far as our LGBTQ rights. I know ... did you really ever think I would say that? My friends only know me to complain. After reading about the butches and femmes and queens and he-she's and whatever the fuck you want to call yourself... that came before me... after reading about what it was like for THEM, I cannot complain. I feel ridiculous for my rants.
What Jess Goldberg endured as a young girl and then young woman I related to on so many levels. I am not even half way through the book. Already, my face has been wet with tears, AND I have laughed out loud in public while reading too.
So... tell me... what are you reading?
