For those who’ve been seeking a queer space of art, music, and fashion, the recently launched Posture Magazine will get your culture buds churning. Their sleek and enticing minimalist design certainly makes me want to hang out with them, and maybe put them on my wall. So far, their fashion column has featured an exposé of well-dressed queers who also do cool things. VEER NYC sat and spoke with them recently about their recent works to get going in the fall.
A snippet of Posture:
You might not be the only fashionable queer who has never picked up a mainstream fashion magazine, and there’s a reason why. In their interview with performer Robert MoonJuice, he said that none of his fashion inspiration came from magazines.
"The thing about beauty is that it’s boring. I’m over beautiful people. Society’s standard of beauty is what I hate. It’s been thrown in my face; it’s now changed my taste in men. There’s been so much buff, muscular guys thrown at me in TV and media. I like ugly boys."

Posture’s launch party/fundraising event on August 25th at The Dalloway is just the beginning of an amazing space and community of queer inspiration. See Facebook Event. They ask that you interpret Black Tie in a way that’s meaningful to you, and you could win a prize for your outfit! For inspiration, check out Qwear’s formal wear tag.
