Queer Fashion Conversations, The Archive

Conversations lead to visibility.

We are constantly scanning the web for articles, studies and conversations related to gender, sexuality, fashion, style and culture--particularly the ways these topics intersect. We do our best to share the best of these articles on our social media platforms: Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. We hope you'll follow us and be part of the ongoing conversations on each of these posts. Your comments are valuable.  

Staying Safe

Social media is a major part of our lives, and an amazing way to promote LGBTQIA+ visibility. However, 73% of the community have been harassed online for their gender and sexual identity. We recommend this resource from VPN Mentor to stay safe out there!

Creating an Ongoing Archive

Even though social media is a great way to share information, we have found it's sometimes difficult to find that certain article we are referencing. So, we've decided to provide a one-stop link to all of the articles we post, in alphabetical order, for easy referencing. We hope this helps keep conversations about these important topics front and center.

If you find an article that you think would be a good fit for the archive, please reach out to us on our Contact Page.  Be sure to include the link.  

Additionally, we have recently added a link to the recent AutoStraddle compendium of 22 important articles/essays on gender and fashion. You can access the link here. You won’t be disappointed.

Thank you!
