 Lesbians Mourn Loss of Vagina Tree

 Lesbians Mourn Loss of Vagina Tree


Brooklyn's famous "vagina tree," popular with queer women in New York's most lesbian-studded neighborhood, has been felled by Hurricane Irene. According to reports in The Brooklyn Paper, the decades-old London plane tree in McCarren Park was knocked over by the high winds of last weekend's tropical storm.

The tree's distinguished trunk earned it the moniker years ago. Last April an artist anonymously pierced it with a five-inch metal ring, making the resemblance to hipster lady parts complete.

According to The Brooklyn Paper, the sexy neighborhood curiosity has its own Foursquare page (which closed this week) and its own Twitter feed, @TheVaginaTree. Monday night the tree tweeted what might be her last message: "I am the stump formerly known as Vagina Tree."
