Hi “Guys n Galz”!

Hey All,

 

Just had to share this link –   The film is titled

The Oldest LESBIAN in the World!

Its a short film about “an old butch who loves women and loves to talk about it! The lesbian Hugh Hefner! A lively portrait of one of the most uniquely endearing persons that you are likely to meet. Full of life, energy and bawdy good humor, it’s a real treat.”

— Ray McDermott, FilmRadar.com

Check  out this Butch when, at 15:00 into the film, she and the interviewer sing “I don’t go to bed with butches…”  Bobbie Staff is 96 years old at the time of the interview and shares with glee her many conquests.  Enjoy:

 

Hugs to All our BF Community!

The BF Listings Team

It’s a way off from now, but…

We just learned that an other PALM SPRINGS PRIDE DYKE MARCH will be happening again this year!  We were present for the first ever PSDM last year and it was a blast – please plan on attending the 2016 March and if you see us, come on over to say hello!  If you are Butch or Femme or just like us here at ButchFemmeListings, we’d be honored to have you march with us.  We will keep you updated as we learn more.  For now, you can visit LAST year’s DM facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/psdykemarch/

NOTE: 2016 PALM SPRINGS PRIDE IS SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 5TH. WE ARE GUESSING THAT THIS MEANS 2016 DYKE MARCH WILL BE HELD THE EVE OF FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 4TH – BUT THIS HAS NOT YET BEEN CONFIRMED!  WE WILL UPDATE YOU AS WE LEARN MORE!

(Above: That is us, last year, at the first ever PSp Dyke March – we were proud to be there!)

We will keep you updated as we learn more, so stay tuned.

For those coming from afar, please make your reservations for accommodation soon – we know it seems far off, but Palm Springs in November is GORGEOUS and hotels, motels, BnB’s all fill up super fast – especially for Pride weekend!  If you get here late, you could try checking Desert Hot Springs, Cathedral City, Palm Desert,  Joshua Tree or Yucca Valley – all some minutes drive -but they may have openings when Palm Springs is full.

There are plenty of other hotels, motels, BnB’s, AirBnB’s etc. in Palm Springs and surrounding areas (and remember, PSp is an LGBTQ Mecca, so pretty much anywhere you go – especially in Pride season – you will find Family), but these two are known to be Lesbian establishments:

casitasCasitas Laquita Lesbian Resort – http://www.casitaslaquita.com/

queenQueen of Hearts Lesbian Resort – http://www.queenofheartsps.com/

If we hear back from enough of you all, we just might plan a B/F meetup dinner or some other B/F event over the Pride weekend.  Let us know.  We look forward to marching with you!

Love as Always,

The BFL Team

Butch Femme Lit. . .

Dear Readers,

HOORAY for Summertime, beaches, BBQ’s, laying around with the dogs ‘n’ cats. . . One of our favorite summer things to do is read to each other.  We have been doing this for about five years – and just like many of you, we are ever on the lookout for books in which we – Butch~Femme community – are represented authentically.  Whether fact or fiction, there is no denying that little jump-for-joy we feel when we recognize ourselves in the pages or on screen – and, sadly, it is a rare occurrence.

We want to share the following title with you all; we found the book in a second hand store in Long Beach – maybe you know it. . . in case not, the book is:

Stonehurst

By Barbara Johnson

Click here to find it on Amazon.com.

And you can read a reader-review about it HERE.

Stonehurst

Though to be perfectly honest, we have not yet finished the book so we offer this info with a ‘read at your own risk’ preamble, and in fact, we agree with the writer of the review above that it is not the most well written book on the shelf. . . but we are giving it a wide berth simply because we can identify with the characters.  Not for lit class, but as a short summer butch-femme escape, we thought some of you out there in reader-land might want to check it out too.

If you have some good titles you want to share, please do, and we will post them or link to your site.

Sending Cool Summer Breezes to You All,

With Love,

The BFL Team
