Skewed Fuschia Mushroom with Iron Helmet -
I’m onto you, indiegogo. You claim I can’t find a skewed fuschia mushroom with an iron helmet, and yet when I go to this page, THERE IT IS.
When people assume I’m an ally because they read me as straight and binary…

Celeste West (1942-2008) quite deservedly belongs in whatever women in library hall of fame there might ever be. In “Unbossed and Unbought: Booklegger Press—the First Women-Owned American Library Publisher”*, Toni Samek describes West’s concern with self-censorship among librarians and the limitations of a philosophy of neutrality. West founded “Booklegger Press, the first women-owned American library published, [which] became a key communication tool for some of librarianship’s leading alternative voices in the 1970s, countered mainstream library publishing, challenged limitations to freedom of expression within librarianship, introduced a wave of alternative library publishing that persists to this day, served as an open forum for library workers’ dissent, and advanced women’s library causes, as well as those of other alienated library groups, such as gays and lesbians, politically active library school students, individuals interested in library unions, and alternative library publishers.”
Library Juice Press published a book about her in 2010; here is the paragraph that they have describing her:She Was a Booklegger: Remembering Celeste West is a compilation of reflections and tales from friends and other admirers who were influenced and inspired by this larger than life feminist librarian, lesbian, publisher, and activist.
