Special Shout-out to the Queer Studies Genderfork Project!

So, I’m drinkin’ my coffee this morning, and the first thing the Internet says to me is, “Hey Sarah! Come and take a look at THIS!”

Queer Studies Genderfork Project

The artists write…

Some friends and I are taking Intro to Queer Studies this term, and one assignment was a group presentation on a queer cultural production (magazine, anthology, art exhibit, etc.). We researched and presented Genderfork.com, which is a really awesome online community that explores androgyny and gender ambiguity. As a creative component to the project, we took our own gender-ambiguous photos. It may be interesting to note that although I am a gay-male-identified, biologically-born male, my gender is much more ambiguous with fake facial hair than it would be if I were to wear a dress. In a dress, I would be fairly obviously male, but if I go for the “bro” look, I could pass as a female in drag. Anyway, I definitely encourage you to check out Genderfork if you haven’t already!

Thanks, guys! This is fabulous! Tell your professor that we give you all an A!

    Oh, wow…this is such a great idea. I love the notion of someone who is gay-male-identified creating a fake beard/mustache in a genderbending way. That’s fantastic!

    I’m in the class where the folks presented this project. It was an amazing presentation on a fabulous topic. I immediately bookmarked the site and became a fan on Facebook. I’m glad sites and people like this exist.

    I’m in this class as well and really enjoyed the presentation. I have been frequently visiting the website, I think it’s awesome.

    Neat! I’m in the group that presented on genderfork.com and I just wanted to let you know, Sarah, how very excited we were to see this on your website. Very excited indeed.

    It was a pleasure to present about such a wonderful website-thank you for all you do for the queer community!
