Hyper Femme

1975153_10150365702409990_1213678530_n Bar Wotever, now in our Tenth year, giving space and place for us all to be who we are. Here is what our friend and regular Hollie posted on her facebook today,

‘The thing I love most about queer spaces is that I can express my hyper femme side without feeling like there are expectations of how I should act.

That, and urinals. I like urinals.’ Hollie Howitt

I asked Hollie to tell me a bit more what it actually means to her, that feeling she described, so she replied with  this;

1010557_10150365702389990_1450657403_nWotever World feels like going home. It is a space where you can go, and know that whatever you’re wearing, whoever you are there with, however you express yourself, you will be welcomed. Entertained. Accepted. The thing I love most about queer spaces like Bar Wotever is that I can express my hyper femme side, or my butch side, or my slutty side, without feeling like there are expectations of how I should act, or who I ‘am’. It feels as though the usual presumptions about gender, orientation and our bodies are left at the door. This type of queer community is so important. Many of my friends and lovers don’t fit the constraints of the binaries we mostly get squeezed into outside of queer space; so having things like genderless toilets is pretty handy. Plus, you know, I like urinals.’
