‘Funny, frank and moving monologues by butch women and trans men’
★★★★ The Stage

A powerful and often humorous collection of secret stories exploring sexuality, vulnerability and desire taken from interviews with butches, masculine women, gender rebels and transmen, living world-wide.

The Butch Monologues brings together a collaboration between –

hotpencil press: an independent not for profit UK publishing house promoting high quality, unique, contemporary and re-visited works, largely ignored by the mainstream, under the leadership of Laura Bridgeman; Vital Xposure, a bold, dynamic touring theatre company under the creative leadership of disabled artist, Julie McNamara; and The Drakes, a group of butches, transmen and gender rebels, who joined together in the spirit of masculine solidarity, with the aim of promoting female masculinity and butch pride.

The publication of The Butch Monologues will be launched in Autumn 2017, bringing together a number of these unique and extraordinary stories.
