Kesser Vater

The literal translation into the English language of the expression Kesser Vater would be something like “the freshest father” and has its origin in a lesbian movement probably imported from the United States back in the 30s. Its first written record in German literature appears in half of the 20th century and is quite used by the German lesbian collective in the 70s, also with the acronym KV. There is no equivalent expression in English, and although it is usually translated as butch or tomboy, we prefer to translate it as Papi Chula, since it expresses better the world behind these words.
