The Butch-Stud group is a multi-cultural and inter-generational peer led weekly drop-in group for butches, studs, aggressives, bois, etc. It is intended as a space to support the identities of queer, masculine females who are gender non-conforming, and who are identified and centered in their female bodies. Through the exploration of issues and topics specific to butches, studs, aggressives, bois, dominants etc., our goal is to assist each other in the development of self-acceptance and a positive self-concept as gender non-conforming females, affirmation of our female bodies, strategies for dealing with discrimination, maintenance of our mental and physical health, empowering ourselves in the world, and liberation from limiting or destructive stereotypes about masculine females that we may have learned, or that have been imposed upon us because of our gender non-conforming presentation and identities.
I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
