its_all_butch_cover.jpgAfter writing two posts in the past month about 2014 calendars geared toward a gay male audience, I started getting comments asking when there'd be a post about a calendar geared toward women who love women.

Well look no further! Presenting the 2014 "It's All Butch" calendar, which features photos by Debbie Boud of butch lesbians in a variety of environments. The Huffington Post reports:

With sparse examples of lesbians in the media and entertainment industries, Boud initially found inspiration to produce "It's All Butch" when a friend posted pictures from cult television show "The L Word" with some comments about how hot the women were. Boud found issues with the fact that not all of these women were really gay, and her friend challenged Boud to find women that were actually "gay and hot" and document them as a photography project.

"I wanted to break the mullet-wearing stereotypes and show that we can be 'hot' too," Boud told The Huffington Post.

With the popularity of calendars that showcase sexy and naked gay men, calendars the feature lesbians seem to be few and far between. "I think butch women are not seen as pretty by the media and lets face it pretty sells," Boud told The Huffington Post. "I get 20 emails a day from butch/bois that want to model but can't find any outlet to do so."

Boud has been producing the calendar since 2010. The 2014 version has apparently already sold out, but thanks to the magic of Facebook I've been able to find several of the images it contains.

They're after the jump. Enjoy!
