Peggie Miller is determined to bring butch women out of “the shadows” and into mainstream society. Miller, who identifies herself as a butch woman, began the New Millennium Butch fashion shows to showcase butch identified models, designers, and entertainers. These have enjoyed great success over the last decade. To celebrate this success, Miller created the table book, NMB: New Millennium Butch. She writes, “I decided to take us to the next level and bring us out of the darkness into the light for the whole world to see.”
