QD Week 23, Feeling Yourself: Quotes From Queer Fashion Role Models
Qwearly Dashing (QD) is a Sunday column featuring some things from our dashes that we loved.
Usually when I'm compiling photos for Qwearly Dashing, I'm look at what is being worn, how it is styled, and where is its place in upcoming and passed trends... not this week. This week is all about the people.
This week goes out to the people who are feeling themselves and looking good doing it.
