1920 Vogue: “Now do write!”

I don’t think this advertisement from 1920 Vogue for stationery features lesbians, but I can’t help thinking that there was some- just a little– homoerotic intent. Ok, maybe just romantic friendship. But still.

My favorite non-fiction book about the concept and flourishing of female romantic friendship is Surpassing The Love of Men by Faderman. I don’t have a favorite fiction because there are just too many. What is yours?

Vogue, 1920.  Romantic friendship persists, despite the sexologists best efforts.
