The Life and Times of Butch Dykes Issue 3, Vol 1: Gladys Bentley

by B&D Press

The Life and Times of Butch Dykes is B&D Press' series of fanzines about the lives and times of amazing women who could be considered icons against heteronormativity, in their very personal and unique ways. They're from different places/spaces and yet have as a common ground the fact that they're all accomplished creators, in work and life. They were and are brave people who tried to be authentic and faithful to what they perceived as their true identity. The jazz musician Gladys Bentley was a larger-than-life character during the incredible times of the Harlem Renaissance. This bio matches extraordinary stories of a rich period of American gay and cultural history to beautiful ink drawings.
