Abstract

I created this ensemble to utilize clothing as a form of activism to highlight inequalities in the queer community. Conceptually this design comments on the struggles of femme-identified lesbians by juxtaposing ideas of “passing” as heterosexual with the negotiations of presenting queer signifiers in appearance as a form of solidarity with the LGBTQ community.
