"There are just so many stereotypes about us that we have to be these silent cool types that don't talk or only are about how we look. And we have a lot to say.

"We just don't really ever get the time, because we're so divided across race, divided across gender identities, pronoun choices. So if we can get around the pieces that usually keep us apart and actually get to the meat of things, we can affect some real change and bridge some gaps."

--Joe LeBlanc, founder of the Butch Voices conference held last week in Oakland, California
