FTMs and the lesbian community

Buck Angel, Patrick Califia and Camille Paglia weigh in

The female-to-male trans community has long found refuge in the lesbian community, but the trans community’s growth is causing some rethinking of the relationship, according to some activists.

“The comment I hear a lot is there aren’t going to be any butches anymore because they are all going to turn into men,” says author and activist Patrick Califia.

“I think that the truth is that as the trans community becomes more visible, it is going to impact the structure of the lesbian community.”

In the video report below, Elvira Kurt speaks to Califia, Lucas Silveira and Buck Angel. As well, the always-provocative Camille Paglia weighs in.
