On queered masculinity and misogyny

I started wearing ties my senior year of college. My mother bought me a slim, silver Calvin Klein tie at Nordstrom Rack when she visited me over her spring break. Though I began to dress in men’s clothes the year prior, until that moment, I had not yet forayed into officially being read as masculine.

16-year-old queer Latina Jessie Hernandez killed by Denver police

Jessie Hernandez’ friends describe her as goofy, lovable, with an infectious smile. On Monday morning, the Denver police officers saw in Jessie — a Latina, queer-presenting young person — a threat. For this reason, Jessie is now dead.

Most importantly for today’s purposes, though, Mateo is an excellent leatherworker, making gorgeous, high-quality leather harnesses, bustiers, and other assorted leather creations that manage to both be unexpected (in the best way) and pay tribute to queer leather histories.

Feministing Jamz: The Afropunk Festival is doing it right

The Afropunk Festival is hands-down one of my favorite things about summer in New York City. Every year, at the end of August, there is a whole weekend full of amazing musicians, and this year’s lineup is super exciting. Even outside of the music, though, the Festival has managed to create a wonderful and accepting space for all sorts of folks in attendance, and particularly for queer folks of color.
