People Who Identify As Butch Share Photos Of Themselves For #WhatButchLooksLike

Though queer people are gaining more and more visibility in mainstream media and society, that doesn't mean that the images we're presented with are always accurate or representative of who we really are and how we live our lives. And sometimes we're still disappointingly absent, especially when it comes to certain subsections of our community.

Case in point: The dearth of images that authentically capture what it means to be a butch.

But fear not! Thanks to the hashtag #WhatButchLooksLike, we're hoping to help change all that. Feast your eyes on the beautiful folks who offered up a shot of themselves and if you want to be part of this stunning group, tweet your own photo using #WhatButchLooksLike.
