Mar - He / They
Mar is an opinion-having, people-loving, butch dyke for dykes. His current mission is to read every word ever written, and he has a special place in his heart for the weirdos and the queers throughout history. Keeping track of him is hard, but if you really want to find him, he can usually be caught running around fulfilling silly little tasks or listening to a butch with rapt attention in the corner of a bar.
