Beebo Brinker | Ann Bannon

Beebo arrives in the Village fresh from the small town where people always looked at her oddly. Luckily, the first one to notice her is Jack, who takes her under his wing and introduces her to the Village scene-and to her own desire for women. Beebo ends up going to Hollywood and back before figuring out which woman is her true love.

This is one of the most popular and enduring lesbian pulps. It’s fourth in a series (in order, the other titles are Odd Girl Out, Journey To A Woman, and I Am A Woman.) All of Ann Bannon’s pulps were re-issued in 2001, and you can buy them here.

Women in Africa and the Diaspora: “Wangechi Mutu”

Considered by many to be one of the most important contemporary African artists of recent years, Wangechi Mutu is a Kenyan-born, New-York based artist known for her elaborate collaged works on pieces of Mylar and sculptures. Her work boldly explores the contradictions of female and cultural identity, race, colonialism, and sexual identity just to name a few.

Constructing collages using fragments from fashion and travel magazines, pornography, African art books, images drawn from science fiction as well as hand-drawn and painted elements, Mutu’s work is filled with provocative juxtapositions of the female body. With these collages, she draws the viewer into conversations about the eroticization of women’s body, particularly African women.

Mutu observers that, “Females carry the marks, language and nuance of their culture more than the male. Anything that is desired or despised is always placed in the female body.”

One of the saddest and most hilarious things is when a customers says “Oh yeah, I can tell your pussy is tight.”

Because no you can’t.  You are looking at my vulva.  You have no idea what’s going on inside.  No idea.  I could have a handful of dice rolling around in there.  I could have an alphabetically sorted deck of baseball cards in there.  I could have 8 jumbo tampons stuffed inside me, side-by-side, and you’d never fucking know.  You can’t see shit and you definitely can’t predict vaginal tightness by the way the vulva looks.  I’m sorry the American school system has failed you to tragically.
