Ask a Homo: Butch Aesthetics

screen_shot_20141029_at_7.58.33_am

Welcome back to Ask a Homo, a judgment-free zone where the gays of Outward answer questions about LGBTQ politics, culture, etiquette, language, and other queer conundrums. In this edition we consider why lesbians—who are, after all, attracted to women—sometimes draw on traditionally male aesthetics.

If there are questions you’ve been dying to ask a member of the real rainbow coalition, this is your chance. Send your queries—for publication—to slateoutward@gmail.com, and please put “ASK A HOMO” in the subject line. Note that questions may be edited.
