Sophisticated Lady: Lilyan Tashman and Sapphic Chic

butch-in-progress:

[K] Lilyan TashmanI meant to write about Lilyan Tashman for quite some time - yet like another actress from Hollywood’s Golden era who was well-known for her affairs with women as well as for being a fashion icon, Kay Francis (whom she starred next to in Girls About Town), she doesn’t fit the category of Vintage Butch, hence I struggled to find a way to include her into our blog smoothly…

then I stumbled across this well-researched and brilliantly written piece about her and thought “why bother”. In case you’re wondering why you should ‘bother’ to read about her:

Tashman personified what was then Hollywood’s era of Lesbian Chic.

Good ol’ times…
