Like I’m changing my major to Fun Home.
I’m talking about the graphic memoir by the brilliant Allison Bechdel and the hit Broadway musical based on the book.
I tell W I’m a Fun Homie.
But buys us tickets for our anniversary next month.
And sometimes sings Ring of Keys in the shower.
I bought Fun Home in 2007 from Giovanni’s Room, a gay bookstore in Philadelphia.
I just finished re-reading it in anticipation of the play. I was sad like I always am when I finish a good book.
I started thinking about what to read next. But when you’re a butch lesbian, how do you top Fun Home?
And that’s when I read that Leslie Steinberg’s groundbreaking Stone Butch Blues is being made available for download to celebrate Leslie’s Sept. 1 birthday. Click here to download your free copy.
So, I will be reading Stone Butch Blues tonight. And thinking about Leslie Feinberg and Allison Bechdel and all the other butch writers who have made it a little easier for the rest of us to be ourselves.
