Based on the original short story “Miss Furr and Miss Skeene” by Gertrude Stein, this piece acts as a playful depiction of Stein and her partner Alice B Toklas, happy and gay together. The story appeared in Vanity Fair in July of 1925 and is one of the first homosexual stories to be published. The word "gay" is used over one hundred times and it is thought to be the first published use of the word "gay" in reference to same-sex relationships, a term that was read quite differently between queer and non queer audiences at the time.
