Recommendation: Portraits of Men Wearing Their Girlfriends’ Clothes

Someone recommends…

As the title says, this is a photo shoot of men wearing an outfit from their girlfriends. From the photographer’s description: “He wanted to make images that showed not only the equality of balance in heterosexual relationships, but also the feeling of confusion the male may be experiencing with this change.”

I think Genderfork readers will appreciate this because of the portrayal of cis-gendered men in a feminine aspect and the reactions that may evoke. For example, one of the commentators on the original website said that the portraits made him feel uncomfortable yet curious how his girlfriend may have influenced his own gender expression over time.

    Absolutely love this, thanks for the link, the photographer is very talented. Anyone feeling at all vulnerable may want to avoid reading the comments underneath the piece, there are quite a few destructive ones unfortunately. While that’s to be expected with any art that raises interesting questions, the words chosen are still pretty depressing.
