The Life and Times of Butch Dykes series, by Eloisa Aquino:
The zines tell the real stories of women who challenged stale notions of gender and sexuality through their lives and work. They were and are brave people who tried to be authentic to what they perceived as their true identity.
After The Life and Times of Butch Dykes won the Best English Zine award in Montreal’s Expozine, B&D Press was invited to show at the New York Book Fair in 2010. The author Eloisa Aquino was also nominated for the Printed Matter’s Awards for Artists in 2010.
Claude Cahun – Photographer, political activist, writer, performer, the French artist is in many ways still an enigma.
