LGBTQ* History You Should Know
(and probably never heard of)
JEANNE BONNET
According to historian Allan Berube, “Jeanne Bonnet grew up in San Francisco as a tomboy and in the 1870’s, in her early twenties, was arrested dozens of times for wearing male attire. She visited local brothels as a male customer, and eventually organized French prostitutes in San Francisco into an all-woman gang whose members swore off prostitution, had nothing to do with men and supported themselves by shoplifting. She traveled with a special friend, Blanche Buneau, whom the newspapers described as ‘strangely and powerfully attached’ to Jeanne. Her success at separating prostitutes from their pimps led to her murder in 1876.”
