Chola Magnolia's piece "Stand Femme" speaks to femmephobia and femme invisibility within the queer community and how it spreads to society and vice versa. “Femme” is a lesbian identity that was created in the working class lesbian bar culture of the 1950’s. It was a term used to distinguish feminine lesbians and bisexual women from their butch/masculine counterparts and partners. Today it might also represent a gay non-binary individual, an asexual transwoman, or used to self-describe queer femininity for persons of any gender. In short, femme identification, both aesthetically and identity-related, means you are feminine AND you fall somewhere on the LGBTQIA spectrum.
