Geezer Dyke & Other Stories of Bad Behavior

Funny, real, and unapologetically queer,
How would a ship full of lesbians fare in a disaster?
What are the prostitutes reading by the bus stop by the
library? Having finally accepted yourself and liking
what you saw in the mirror, what would a butch
lesbian do if she woke up as a hyper-feminine
teenager? Geezer Dyke and Other Stories of Bad
Behavior explores these questions and more.

Becky Thacker’s Geezer Dyke and Other Stories of Bad Behavior is a collection of
high energy, imaginative short stories about the antics and lives of an assortment of
not so unproblematic lesbians. The stories pack a punch and subvert expectations.
Often addressing issues of identity, gender, and races, “Geezer Dyke” is an elder
lesbian’s reflection of the joys and pains of the queer experience without boiling down
the characters to their queerness.
