This chapter discusses some dimensions of the work with Femmes of Power as one example of how collaborative science might be made and what the effects of femme-on-femme research are. It discusses on some existing queer feminist models for conducting research within subcultural communities to which one belongs, and draws on lesbian anthropology and interdisciplinary queer studies. The chapter addresses the false dichotomy of home/away and how it structures ethnographic knowledge production with the aim to rethink community through movements, networks and figurations rather than geopolitical boundedness. It argues that femme-on-femme research is no more a narcissistic project about studying 'oneself' or advancing a personal agenda, than any other research. The chapter focuses on the ethnographic practice employed in the work on Femmes of Power: Exploding Queer Femininities, and situates its motivations against a legacy of queer, feminist and 'straight' anthropological practice.
