100 LGBTQ+ Women, Nonbinary and Transmasc Celebrities Killing It In Suits

Looking for fashion inspiration for all those gay weddings and outdoor galas you’re attending this year? Craving some queer eye candy to soothe your creeping sense of general dread for the future of humanity? Well have we got the thing for you: Lesbians in suits! Bisexuals in suits! Queer and/or trans women in suits! Non-binary people in suits! Trans men in suits! All of these celebrities have dared to do one thing: look very hot in all manner of blazers, vests, pants, shoes and suiting for women and people of all genders.

The inspiration for this list came from the realization in June that our Getty Images contract was renewing in two weeks and we hadn’t yet used up our allotted image amount for the year and those unused numbers don’t roll over into next year’s contract and therefore I was in a race against time to ensure maximum bang for our already-spent bucks by downloading a million pictures at once.

    • Once I scrolled through I realised what a big job it would have been but still would have loved to know who made some of these suits.
      Too old to know who many of these people are – but im still noting my personal faves

      Obviously Queens first Gillian Anderson, standing like she’s packing for the back row, also with well deserved confidence – Queen Latifah, Beth Ditto with the fit that makes fat ladies like me dream of tailoring. Janelle Monae

      unknown to me pair Genesis Linear and Aimee Atkinson elevate each other
      Cynthia Eriva gives houndstooth new life with big time star cool and yay I recognise someone! Jenny Shimizu warms my gen x heart yet again by wearing socks and sandals

      I love colour and love all the red suits with Aunjanue Harris, Megan Rapinoe pulling off the USA thing well somehow and Dillone my faves of the scarlet. Lauren Rowles rocks Purple which is always a miracle for non Prince persons, Lena Waith is unknown to me but gorgeous enough that it took a bit to notice her sweet pastel suit that would either wreck or disappear most of us. She wrangles it into submission

      A lot of Cowboy looks more suitable for steel guitar playing than cattle wrangling appear – Sherry Cola looks amazing, Brandie Carlisle and Elizabeth Ludlow would complete the Nudie Suit band perfectly.
      Jasika Nicole manages to wear a shorts suit well and doesn’t make me think of Boyz to men, Sasha lane with the sailor patterns…

      Desiree Ahkavan, Ser Anzoategui,Jonica t Gibbs, E.R fightmaster, Leo Sheng pull off the slightly more accessible classic queer apparel/sapphic suit style

      So much to love here

      • i did have a brief moment of intense ambition where i thought “i’m gonna find out who made the suits these people are wearing for this post” but after about 20 minutes of attempting to find the source of one (1) suit i realized that doing so would be impossible

        but agreed on all your favorites — i am really into bold colored suits now and loved seeing so much red! and Queen Latifah is so REGAL in that suit, Gillian Anderson quietly holding court, chef’s kiss.

  1. As a self – confessed “suit – sexual” (it’s a thing) this totally made my day, week, month, & year all at once!
    I own three suits (a black pinstripe three piece, a black velvet two piece & a grey two piece) plus an obscene amount of blazers, vests, & trousers which can all be co – odinated to create yet more suit variations…
    I absolutely love seeing how all these fabulous, talented folks wear their suits with style, pride, & attitude. Just goes to show what a truly diverse outfit a suit can be…far from being a uniform of conformity, when worn by queer people it becomes the ultimate way of asserting your individuality.
    My personal favourites are E R Fightmaster, Elliot Page, & Melissa King but everyone is looking amazing here, so much suited up awesomeness!
    Thank you Reise, you’ve made this NB suit – sexual very, very happy today!

  2. I looked at every single pic bc I’m bought my first tailored suit based on autostraddle’s rec and am now trying to figure out how to wear it best. What I learned is that there is no wrong way to design or wear a suit. Thank you 💜
