Qwearly Dashing Week 6: Queer Activists and Chicago Designers
This week I was continually reminded of incredible, brilliant queer activists who are healing, living, loving, working, cooking, and being FINE AS HELLLLLLLL.
Angelica Ross, host of Miss Ross, recently hosted the Second Annual Trans100. She's the coordinator for the TransWorks project of the TransLife House / Chicago House. This outfit (snapped by Jen Richards on the train in Chicago) is just fabulous. The oversized items - boots, cardigan - exemplify Angelica's huge spirit and lovely personality.
