  Dusty Lombardo (b. 1972), a San Francisco-based visual artist and community arts organizer, created the "Butch Interiors" series to bring the "inside" of butch identity out.

"In creating this project," Lombardo writes, "I was reflecting on the stereotypes that butch women are seen as private and somewhat reclusive about their interiors. I found that these butches were very domestic and deliberate in their creation of home, but that their domesticity was not in 'traditional' form. Many consider butch women to be living in an in-between identity, not easily represented by traditional female or male roles."

"This project was an attempt to give language to some of the pieces of butch identity and also expose the places where the roles of male and female merge inside one person. This was an attempt to bring the 'inside' of butch identity out, and expose different aspects of living as a butch in the world."
