LESBIAN, bisexual & queer Women

As lesbian, bisexual and queer women, our construct of relationships may be an amalgam of the heterosexual model as well as our own creativity and experiences of different relationships. So what do relationships between lesbian, bisexual and queer women look like?

How do labels like Femme, Butch, Andro or Futch influence our relationship dynamics ? Maybe these labels can sometimes be helpful, but sometimes also limiting?
