Because it’s still relevant and therefore, one can never really have too many reminders of the Bechdel Test in my opinion 😀. P.s. it came from Alison Bechdel’s friend who most likely read it in Virginia Woolf’s A Room of One’s Own. 📚 ***What was the last thing you read or watched that passed the Bechdel Test?*** #feminism #feminist #readmorewomen #comics #dykestowatchoutfor #lgbt #lgbtq #bookstagram

“And I’m proud to be an American, where at least I know I’m free”.⚫️🇺🇸⚫️ Truth is, we aren’t free. You aren’t free. I’m not free. None of us are free. We are chained. We live on stolen land as immigrants, while telling those wanting to visit, “you don’t belong here”. I’m twice as more likely to be murdered than others who look just like me but their sexuality is different and I’m 4 times more likely to be murdered because I’m trans. Employment, housing, healthcare and other basic necessities all have barriers that make us as a LGBTQ community, more vulnerable. We have a President who is destroying our Country and the majority of “We the People” didn’t vote for him. Here in America, they have lied to us since birth. I came up with this crazy idea to wear black today, and in the end, I don’t think I am so crazy for doing so.✊🏾🇺🇸 Happy 4th to you sexy humans, spread love and watch your back out there tonight🤘🏾🍻|| #FreedomFighter #4thOfJulyBlackout

And now, a poem: Oh mighty vac how i love thee. In service of clutches and brakes to bleed. Oh fair vac, my ride now at ease. My heart swells full with glee; two wheels out, then one wheel up. Ride.

Sorry can’t post today. Inside with AC blasting reading ESSENTIAL DYKES TO WATCH OUT FOR by @alisonbechdel which is the best book ever! Everyone should read. Who are you?! a Mo? a Lo? a Clarice? a Toni? a Ginger? a Sparrow? a Harriet? Shouldn’t this be on Netflix already?! I’m a Lo/Sparrow mix if that makes sense. #dykestowatchoutfor

I watched Hannah Gadsby's Nanette a few days ago - and whilst I've seen everyone posting about it on FB - I haven't quite known what to say.... So many of the things she says, about being a butch lesbian, about being 'gender not normal', 'an incorrect woman' have rung so true to me it hurts. The violence she has experienced, a direct mirror of what I have experienced. As well as that growing feeling of needing to reach out, connect and speak my truth - to 'rebuild myself' at this crucial political juncture. So thankyou. The tears that come feel endless..but are perhaps the first step. I think deep down I always knew the power of your story - of our story. But you have reminded me that it must be told, no matter what. @hannah_gadsby #butch #butchplease #butchpleaselondon #hannahgadsby #hannahgadsbynanette #lesbian #dyke #butchlesbian #lgbtqi #queer #lesbians #dykestowatchoutfor #butchicon #butchpower #lesbianlondon

A number of years ago, a good friend gifted me Fun Home by Alison Bechdel. It was the first graphic novel I ever read and also one of the first pieces that centralized the stories of lgbtq folks. I was hooked - on both. I devoured Dykes to Watch Out For and Are You My Mother? And I wish there was more to read from Bechdel! Her characters make me laugh and cry and cringe and swell with hope and hurt and all the feels. They also make me feel like there is a place for each of us - they made me feel like everything, someday, would be okay, at a time in my life when I desperately needed that grounding. 📚 This Pink Saturday, I want to acknowledge and thank Bechdel for giving her talent and her characters and her stories to the world. I can’t wait to re-read DTWOF at least a few more times over the years. 📚 Happy Pride everyone! ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜🌈 📚 Who are your favorite lgbtqiaa characters? Any recs for must-reads? Also, do you read graphic novels? I like to read them every once in awhile and am always looking for good ones 🤗 📚 #alisonbechdel #funhome #areyoumymother #dykestowatchoutfor #dykemarch #pinksaturday #pride #pridemonth #pride🌈 #graphicnovel #cartoonist

Happy June! My personal queer history in 30 days. Day 18: my first queer comix: Dykes to Watch Out For by Alison Bechdel I bought the first DTWOF book in 1986 and (im)patiently waited for new volumes. The characters are like friends who I'd visit with every few years. I miss them! My favorite characters are Ginger, Lois, Toni, Clarice, Jezanna and Harriet and of course Mo. #dykestowatchoutfor #alisonbechdel #dykestrippers #queercomix # #LGBTQ #lgbtqpride #queer #dykes

June 17th - Alison Bechdel Alison Bechdel is a lesbian cartoonist who is renowned for her autobiographical graphic memoir Fun Home, as well as the comic strip Dykes to Watch Out For. Bechdel studied studio arts at Oberlin College and graduated in 1981, and following this began creating the Dykes to Watch Out For strip. The first strip was featured in WomaNews (a feminist newspaper) in 1983. The comic strip was like a safe haven for the lesbian community and a way for the outside world to peer into the modern lesbian community. In 2006, Bechdel published Fun Home and it was met with widespread attention and acclaim (and controversy). Fun Home tells the story of Bechdel's formative years and coming to realize that she is a lesbian, and that her father was a closeted gay man as well and a number of their family's secrets begin to unravel. The work is widely regarded as one of the greatest graphic novels of all time. A campaign was launched in attempt to ban Fun Home due to its content- Bechdel's response to the attempted banning of her work was that it was a a "great honor" and believed that the campaign meant that the world of graphic novels and media content were shifting. In her own words, "The secret subversive goal of my work is to show that women, not just lesbians, are regular human beings".

Spenderat dagen på vårat stadsbibliotek. Lurkat runt bland hyllorna och fann regnbågshyllan där de fyllt på med både böcker och filmer med HBTQ representation. Blev dock väldigt glad över att finna denna ståendes där då jag varit intresserad av just Alison Bechdel's olika verk. Och ja det är hon som ligger bakom Bechdeltestet. Just denna utgåva är en samling av hennes seriestripar "dykes to watch out for", och låt mig säga detta, några bildserier in och det är som att hitta hem. 👏🏼 🏳️‍🌈 #dykestowatchoutfor

Allison Bechdel is an American cartoonist and graphic artist. She is best known for her long running comic strip “Dykes to watch out for” and is also known for her graphic novel, “Fun Home.” “Fun Home” is also known now as a 2015 Tony Award winning Broadway musical based off of this graphic novel, based off her life. Her name is also associated to the Bechdel Test. The Bechdel test is a test for a work of fiction which asks the question of women in scripts, novels, movies, etc. talk about something other than men. The test first appeared in Bechdel’s “Dykes to Watch Out For” and Bechdel associated the idea with her friend Liz Wallace as well as the writings of Virginia Woolf. Bechdel was born in Lock Haven, PA. Was raised in Beech Creek with her family. She came out as a lesbian at 19. She received her degree in studio arts and art history from Oberlin College. Bechdel's sexuality and gender non-conformity are a large part of the core message of her work. In 2015, she married her partner Holly Rae Taylor. Bechdel lives in Vermont. In 2017 she was appointed Vermont’s third Cartoonist Laureate. Again these stories are distillation and tastes behind the people and events of LGBT history. If you’re interested in more, I urge you to do additional research and watch movies or read about these things! - - - - - - - - - - - - #lgbt #lgbtrights #lgbthistory #lgbtadvocacy #queerhistory #queerrights #lgbtpride #lgbtdaysofpride #Allisonbechdel #bechdeltest #beechcreek #lockhaven #cartoonist #lesbiancartoonist #dykestowatchoutfor #tonyaward #funhome

Spent most of our #mondaymeeting today talking about Alison Bechdel, 'Dykes To Watch Out For' and our favourite drag kings. We promise it was all Entirely Relevant To Business. Question: does anyone else of our (millennial) generation adore these characters as much as we do? #alisonbechdel #dragkings #dykestowatchoutfor #dtwof #feminism #masculinity #drag #mondaymotivation #monday #businessandpleasure

🌫Recovering from depression🌫 I've been absent for quite some time now due to that awful mental illness called depression. It's been the whole shebang, being unable to get out of bed, reply to messages, feeling overwhelmed by the existence of people, feeling absolutely and utterly useless and like a waste of space (👈 particularly nasty side effect), paranoia, loneliness, self-harm fantasies, nightmares, horrible mood swings, no appetite, the list goes on. 🔸️ I wanted to write about all this when it was mental health awareness month, but I was too depressed to get anything done, that I was confident enough to publish. How's that for irony? Thankfully I'm starting to recover. I'd like to say that it's thanks to the health care system and seeing a good psychologist who navigated me through the worst part. But sadly no, access to psychiatric care remains as elusive as ever. I am still trying though! And I will keep fighting for the health care I need. 🔸️ It was my girlfriend sticking by me and taking care of me, despite being sick herself, that got me through. I wonder how many lesbians out there are keeping their partners alive right now? By loving, nurturing, listening, advising, and supporting them in any and all ways that they have come to learn, from being assigned the role of carer their whole lives. It's pride month now, a pretty good time to be coming out of a long term depression. I want to express gratitude to my girlfriend. For being an amazing lesbian and the best partner a queer saddo could have. Your emotional sensitivities continue to inspire and impress me. I'm also grateful for my other queer homegirl, my best friend, who is battling a pretty dark time of her own. I hope I can be there for you in all the ways a dysfunctional dyke like myself can be. Thank you for still coming around and checking in when no one else was. I've been pretty miserable to be around but you still showed your love despite all my flaws. Not many people on this planet can claim that. 🔸️ I also want to thank @alisonbechdel for writing Dykes to Watch Out For. Reading her work made me realise that I'm part of a long lineage of depressed lesbos. >>continues in comments<<

Happy Pride Month to my LGBTQA friends and relatives. Another reading recommendation: The graphic memoir "Fun Home," which illustrates Alison Bechdel's childhood with a closeted gay father and her own coming out story. It earned many book awards, was adapted into a Tony-winning musical, and led Alison to get a MacArthur Fellowship "genius" prize. For many years she penned the comic "Dykes to Watch Out For" (which I first saw serialized in the humor digest magazine "Funny Times"). One of her earlier cartoons launched the concept now known as the "Bechdel Test" for measuring attention paid to women in films. I started my artistic life intending to become an editorial cartoonist, and I've been following Alison's work with feelings of admiration, envy, occasional regret that I haven't done more cartooning myself, and pride that I got to know this amazing person after I bought some of her original work. #alisonbechdel #funhome #dykestowatchoutfor #pridemonth #pride2018 #pride2018🏳️‍🌈

#geekyglowreadscontemporary Day 1 - June TBR • • Omg I'm finally done with finals... I'm officially halfway done with high school! I'm happy because I'll have a lot more time for reading and I'll be able to be more active on bookstagram. • • I likely won't get to all of these books this month, but that's kind of the point. In the past, TBR's haven't really worked for me, and I think that's because they're too restricting. So, this time, I figured I would have a wide variety of books to read, so I would have different options and while still having some guidance, not being too constrained. • • • • • #bookstagram #booklover #booklovers #booknerd #booknerds #bibliophile #booksofinstagram #readersofinstagram #yabooks #igreads #youngadult #yafiction #dtwof #dykestowatchoutfor #jackaby #sixofcrows #soc #crookedkingdom #thewickeddeep #everythingleadstoyou #somethingsnotright #theradicalelement #theabysssurroundsus
