Queer Fashion Week in Oakland, CA was full of beautiful humans and powerful fashion. Take a look!
“Simply put – it’s more than a show; it’s a movement.”
Last week, Molly accompanied LA-based Stuzo to New York Fashion Week’s largest queer fashion show, iD, presented by dapperQ.
We drove 3,645 miles and saw eight national parks over nine days.
Created by a group of app developers, including three Black women, who wanted to create an app that was inclusive, tonr currently consists of 10 photo filters that “amplifies how beautiful a variety of skin tones are instead of washing them out.” Y’all, I love this app!
We put out a call for queer women and nonbinary folks using Pokémon Go: send us photos of you and your pokémon. Here’s what we got.
We eased into the raging with a potluck of queers.
As one speaker said, ‘a federal official suggested that maybe it was best to cancel the festivities – we said back, maybe you don’t know who we are.’ We stand up, fight hate, and spread love.
I arrived knowing literally nothing about what was happening — all I had was the text saying “come, it’s going to be weird and amazing.” To be honest I can’t really describe it better than that. So here’s what I saw.
It’s important to see people who deserve to be celebrated — especially queer people and POC — using selfies to celebrate another day for themselves. We want to see your face out there, so we’ve put together some advice to help you be your best self(ie).
This year I decided to DO Dinah (as opposed to last year when I ran away and went camping). It’s basically “how long can I survive in the heat before I die” and then “how long can I stay at this party before I pass out” and repeat.
“It’s the kind of work that makes me look forward to eight hours on my feet holding five pounds of camera in my hands with another seven pounds slung across my back. It’s wonderful to create not just art, but art that makes people feel special and good and beautiful.”
Wild animals, invisibility cloaks, Flint Michigan, Dannielle Owens-Reid’s latest project, white paranoia, two pregnant wives, women in combat, a non-white Nancy Drew, surveys for you to take, and so very much more!
“I’ve loved dance ever since I was convinced I was Sporty Spice and my living room was Madison Square Garden. I started classes at age 12 and haven’t stopped since.”
We thought it was high time to let Boston dapperQs provide us with some holiday and New Year’s Eve style inspiration for our long running HS/WS project.
“Please don’t use that cute selfie from your road trip, a photo from Pride where you think you look hard, or that funny photo you took one time. Grandma won’t put that on her fridge. “
Molly followed Sharpe Suiting’s founder and CEO, Leon Wu, around with her camera for a day and learned all about his LA-based company that creates gender-neutral ready-to-wear clothing and custom suits (and now dresses!) for all body types and all identities.
Bluestockings Boutique owner Jeanna Kadlec felt strongly about producing original imagery that would represent queer and trans bodies and identities in a realistic, respectful, body positive way.
My favorite images are always those from the first look. They are so genuine, unfiltered and moving.
Same-sex couples, butch and femme identities, queer youth speaking out, gay life in Japan, LGBT athletes and so many more projects from incredible photographers looking to give visibility to a historically hidden population.
