Location: the Silverlake Reservoir, Sunday strolling

Look: super confident transman, strutting his stuff with a pretty blonde at his side and a pretty pooch on the line.

This guy shared an amazing smile with me and the PGF. Love that.


The Location: Little Dom’s, Sunday lunchtime in Loz Feliz.

The Look: It was a lovely couples brunch – two or three mid-30s butches with some stylish, more femme ladies.  Everyone was in their Sunday brunch best – tousled hair, polo shirts, sassy jackets, dark jeans.  Mimosas and pints were had by all.

“Winter” must be nearing its end here in LA, since the lesbians are coming out of hibernation. 🙂

Where have all the butches gone? I haven’t seen any out and about for a while. Probably inside spreading the holiday cheer (ahem) with their gfs, I assume…


The Location: Outside the Disney Concert Hall, downtown LA.

The Look: Sporty tourist butch with her gf. Henley, tee pulled over it and a little leather jacket. Sports shades and some close-cropped bleached blond hair.


Location: Masa in Echo Park, brunch, Sunday. (I know, I know, I need to branch out more from the East side, but it does warm the cuckolds of my heart to see my fellow butch bros in my own neighborhood).

The Look: Library Lesbian, eating alone, reading a book, drinking what looked like home-made kombucha from a nifty bottle (which sells at Crate and Barrel for $3.85, I happen to know, having worked there recently).  Simple dark tee, sporty ripstop travel pants, Teva sandals. She was holding down the butch fort for all of us, and had the hair to match.

The Location: Heliotrope and Melrose

The Look: Awesome summer butch, working the graphic tee and cargo shorts. We had a good moment of recognition before she went about her way.
