100 Most Stylish DapperQs 2015


Reposted from DapperQ.

” In July 2013, dapperQ published their first ever list of 100 Most Stylish dapperQs. This was by far one of their most popular posts, but was by no means exhaustive. Since the original post was not comprehensive enough to capture all of the amazing dapper that exists in our community, their team decided to compile an annual list of 100 most stylish dapperQs.”

Every Breath We Drew


Reposted from The HuffPost (via Jess T Dugan).

“A new photo book has just been released and it examines the power of identity, desire, and connection through the art of portraiture in 2015.

Every Breath We Drew is a striking collection of images from photographer Jess Dugan, who sought out subjects that exhibit, in her words, a form of “gentle masculinity.” Through this work, Dugan complicates traditional notions of masculinity by photographing individuals in intimate spaces as meaningful exchanges took place.”

Trans Microaggressions


Reposted from Bisexual Women of Color (via GLAAD).

“Every day, trans and gender non-conforming people face overt and subtle discrimination as they try to go about their lives. As part of Transgender Awareness Week, GLAAD created a photo essay to highlight the more subtle forms of oppression trans people experience – often called microaggressions. Microaggressions are subtle verbal or behavioural slights that invalidate a person’s identity or experience.”

Portraits of Jacob


Reposted from Charisma Moran Photography.

“I sat patiently waiting in Bryant Park, camera in hand, and perfect weather outside.

Jacob walked up from the Subway in their tall black heels and the perfect LBD, looking effortlessly chic. Sure, Jacob is an accomplished writer, public speaker, and advocate but before that, they are the type of person that you immediately want to be best friends with.

Stylish, funny, and charming; Jacob made me feel as if I had known them my whole life when I had only spent five minutes with them.”

My Journey – As Told Through Bras


Submitted by Celina / Cedric, the model and photographer.

“This collage is part of my finals art project. I chose gender roles as my topic, especially so, as I’m trying to find out if I’m trans or genderqueer right now.
You can see me wearing all bras I ever owned in pretty much the chronological order I bought them in. What I wanted to enact was a a transformation from typically female to typically male traits but it occurred to me in the making, that that’s exactly my own transformation and my own journey, that I seem to have been on longer than I realized.”

Changes in Latitude


Someone wrote…

I’m woking on my podcast ChangesInLatitudesPodcast.blogspot.com and in doing it for almost a year now I’ve come to realize that I’m not a TransWoman, but more of a genderqueer/genderfluid person. Since this is a “large grey area” of description I’ll narrow it down by describing myself as a “feminine male”.

I feel more in tune and in touch with myself and more grounded.
Today I feel a bit more feminine as I’m waking up, but that may change as I start to move and get out of bed.

Thanks for being here.

What’s your experience?

And what are you thinking about gender right now?

The Trans Art of Daniel Arzola


Reposted from No Soy Tu Christe (via Crossdreamers).

“I’m Not A Joke (No Soy Tu Chiste) was begun in Venezuela by writer, illustrator, and activist Daniel Arzola.

It became the first Venezuelan viral campaign that through art raised awareness of the prejudice and violent acts performed against the LGBTI community around the world. Within only 6 months of its creation the campaign had reached more than a million people in more than thirty countries including Russia, where it is used today illegally as a tool for human rights protests.

Today, the campaign is available in Spanish, Portuguese, and English, and holds 50 illustrated posters that through the psychology of color illustrate matters dealing with same-sex marriage, gender roles, bullying, and a variety of other current social issues. ”

Genderfluid Pronouns Necklace


Reposted from Save your Scissors.

“Gender isn’t a binary, and it isn’t always a fixed point either. We’d seen pronoun necklaces before and thought they were very cool and could be useful, except for one problem: they didn’t change.

This necklace is for anyone who is genderqueer, genderfluid, bigender, people in multiple systems where there is more than one gender, and anyone else who finds one set of gender pronouns to be inadequate for their self or selves expression. Flip the charms over to change which one is visible at the front, to let people know which pronouns you want used for yourself at the current time.

We used to offer pre-made sets of pronouns, but there’s no way for those to cover everyone! So finally, it’s here: PICK YOUR OWN PRONOUNS! :D”

Affordable Jeans


Affordable Jeans for Trans Men and Friends.

“Looking for Jeans to fit trans male bodies? Check this article on Qwear out!”

A reader wrote in asking about recommendations for affordable jeans for trans men. We surveyed our staff and the community about their favorite mens* jeans. It can take a lot of trial and error to find the perfect pair of jeans, but I promise they’re out there. Everybody is shaped differently, so these are just good starting places.

Remembering Marsha P. Johnson


Reposted from itsjessegurl.

“I was watching the Stonewall Uprising documentary and the name Marsha P. Johnson was not mentioned once considering she was a leader of the 1969 Stonewall Riots. So I felt like posting these Polaroids of her taken by Andy Warhol to show remembrance of her as the significant trailblazer that she was in making the Stonewall Riots happen. It’ll be 46 years since the riots on June the 28th and 45 years since the first gay pride march took place in New York City as a result of the Stonewall Riots. Thank you Marsha. RIP.”

Venus de Mars

Tender and heart-breaking, yet fierce. Venus de Mars is a star more people should know about. Love that Laura Jane Grace of Against Me! features on one track. Inspirational.

See Me


Reposted from Buzzfeed.

So few people, once you put the homeless label on them, are able to see [the youth] in any other way. But there’s power that comes with being the survivor of abuse, the survivor of homelessness. Having to assert your sexual orientation and gender identity makes you a really powerful person.

Photo from See Me, a book/project by Alex Fradkin, an award winning photographer, and Taz Tagore, co-founder of the Reciprocity Foundation, a not for profit organization serving the needs of homeless youth in New York City.

Female Masculinity at Its Finest


Reposted from SheWired.

Queer photographer Meg Allen didn’t see the images of masculine women she wanted and needed around her, so she took it upon herself to produce them.

From the article…

Allen tells SheWired, she wanted to celebrate and display her “gorgeous” subjects unrestrainedly, allowing “outsiders a change to look, to stare, without feeling like they’re being invasive.” Her portraits are meant, she says, to be attractive and admired, in contrast to a history of masculine women not feeling fully able to “show” themselves to others due, in part, to an understandable fear of violent reactions. Allen spent time with each model discussing how they thought about their masculinity and wished it to be seen.

Recommendation: meant to wake up feeling


morrison recommends…

meant to wake up feeling

I felt like I was opening up a body as I read these poems. Picking apart bones and untwisting veins. These poems are written in ways that re-imagine what a page is, what a body is, what gender is/means. I feel enlightened and full of so many questions. I’ve begun to reread to search for the hidden meanings behind each word. Wow.
