You know we had to bring BV to the Big Apple! New York City will host one of four BUTCH Voices Regional Conferences in 2010. Last year’s ground-breaking BUTCH Voices conference brought together hundreds of self identified Butches, Studs, Aggressives and other similar identified folks, as well as many allies for conversation, workshops, entertainment, and good ol’ fashioned butch bonding.
Our hope for the BUTCH Voices NYC Regional Conference is to provide a similar, regionally-focused event with the same awesome, open spirit and attitude. We will also be including substantial programming around health and wellness.
People wanting to participate in the BUTCH Voices NYC Regional Conference can also emailBVNYC2010@gmail.com with their interest and questions.
A LITTLE MORE ABOUT BUTCH VOICES...
BUTCH Voices is a grassroots organization dedicated to all self identified Butches, Studs, Aggressives, other similar identities, and their Allies. We, at BUTCH Voices, feel it is important to bring together our diverse communities, build bridges, make connections, and use our collective voices to gain better understanding of each other and promote positive visibility.
BUTCH Voices is dedicated to community building, economic/social justice and physical/mental health for all self identified Butches, Studs, Aggressives, our allies, and the general public.
When & Where
The mission of BUTCH Voices is to enhance and sustain the well-being of all women, female-bodied, and trans-identified individuals who are masculine of center*. We achieve this by providing programs that build community, positive visibility and empower us to advocate for our whole selves inclusive of and beyond our gender identity and sexual orientation.
