Visible: A Femmethology, Volume One and Volume Two

Jennifer Clare Burke

Femmethology Volume One cover

Class. Disability. Transphobia. Race. Body size. Surrogacy. Nationality. Biphobia. Economics. Sex work. Queer families. Misogyny. All of these issues and more comprise Visible: A Femmethology, the only two-volume anthology devoted to femme identity. Edited by Jennifer Clare Burke, the book contains personal essays from over fifty contributors who explore what it means to be a queer femme. Award-winning authors, spoken-word artists, and totally new voices come together to challenge conventional ideas of how disability, class, nationality, race, aesthetics, sexual orientation, gender identity and body type intersect with each contributor’s concrete notion of femmedom.

Critical Acclaim

Looking for deep stories and fierce politics, for insight about gender and the many ways of being femme, for sexiness and celebration? It’s all here in this plentiful, delicious, and thoughtful book. — Eli Clare, The Marrow’s Telling and Exile and Pride

I feel like I just ate stars, my body and its gender readjusting to the supernova questions, queries, answers, and truths in these pages. I am so grateful for this book — as a transman, as a femme, but mostly as a human being who values femininity, good writing, and the powerful brilliance that shines at the intersection of both. — Scott Turner Schofield, Two Truths and a Lie
