Butch Voices will be holding its first ever multifocal conference and forum for all selfidentified butches, studs, aggressives, and other allied identities. We are a group of openminded, gender-bending social justice activists who share a commitment to critical thinking and a common goal of building a powerful, inclusive community for us all.
The conference will take place August 20 through August 23, 2009 in Oakland, California. We invite you to join us for four days of workshops, panels, and performances intended to reflect the diversity and complexity of butch gender, identity, and action. On the one hand, butch, stud, and aggressive are hyper-visible identities; on the other, our voices too often go unheard or are misunderstood.
