Queer Palestinians

We are seeking queer Palestinians/ people of Palestinian descent who use style as a means of resistance to feature in an upcoming article.

If you would like to participate, please send 5 photos of your style, a short bio in 3rd person, and the answer to these questions to info@qwearfashion.com:

1. What have been some of the biggest challenges involved with being queer and Palestinian?
2. How has your queer Palestinian identity affected your style?
3. What is most rewarding about being queer and Palestinian?
4. Where in Palestine is your family from?

We look forward to hearing from you!

 

Femme Embodiments

We are seeking a diverse range of femme identities, such as those with non-normative / counter normative sexual orientations, immigrants and undocumented folks, people of size, people of color, people with disabilities, nonbinary folks, people of trans experience, people from working class backgrounds, people of faith who wear religious garments, and more, for our next installment of Femme Embodiments of the Other.

If you would like to participate, please email info@qwearfashion.com with:

  1. 5 (high res if possible) photos showing a range of your style

  2. A short bio in third person

  3. The answer to these questions:

  • Can you describe a time when you experienced discrimination due to your gender presentation or physical appearance?

  • What empowers you to live authentically despite society’s ongoing policing of femme bodies and surveillance of what a femme should be?

  • How do you use style as a means of resistance?

Thank you for helping us resist the heteropatriarchy!
