A Manifesto For The Unrepentant Bitch! Brazen Femme straddles the furious and fantastic. Celebratory and troubling, this sharp-edged collection (of fiction, poetry, essays, photographs and illustrations) explores the recent femme experience emerging in performance, betrayal, violence, humour and survival. Brazen Femme recognises femme as an identity in flux and in motion, as constantly being reinvented. This state sets the stage for creative and thoughtful representation featuring critically acclaimed writers including Camilla Gibb, Sky Gilbert, Michelle Tea, Amber Hollibaugh and Anurima Banerji. Whether by choice or necessity, these frenzied femmes each explore their desires to make(and remake) femininity fit their own queer frames. Darlings, drag queens, whores and action heroes...a femme by any other name is spectacular and fascinating.

This is the first account that I've read that most correctly describes my most consistent feelings and behaviors. It has been a greatly beneficial normalization experience for me to have an account of other individuals who feel and behave similarly, particularly since there are only a very few with which I have had contact.
i have to give it 5 stars, even tho i didn't quite connect with some of the writing... i'm gonna keep re-readng this, i'm sure i'll find something new to like every time.
