"Flamboyance and fortitude, femme and butch -- not poses, not stereotypes, but a dance between two different kinds of women, one beckoning the other into a full blaze of color, the other strengthening the fragility behind the exuberance. We who love this way are poetry and history, action and theory, flesh and spirit."

--Joan Nestle, The Persistent Desire: A Femme-Butch Reader
