You Me Us We
Androgynous, a world i sometimes use to describe my style. its a look that aims to avoid gender stereotypes. Its a style i adore and have always admired! From my shaved head to my heels. Androgynous fashion is SASS! its anything you want it to be. its an individual dressing to express not impress, wearing what makes them happy!
"Androgynous fashion is about embracing your own identity. It's not about fitting into a box. It's not lesbian, tomboy, gay, butch, girly, or manly. It's not masculine or feminine, it's both. Yet it doesn't require you to take on either of those social roles."
Here i am on a photo shoot with the super talented photographer Jools Baker where we really wanted to play on the androgynous look. Im wearing one hella vintage military suit. Fancy a bit of military for yourself.....keep reading!
Talking of androgynous earlier this year many as-well as me in my own way celebrated Pride Month, I personally enjoyed @Roland_bray pride flag looks i admired over on Instagram. Click link to check it out! He is dressed as his alter ego his drag persona Roxy Moron. A Character i had the pleasure to meet last year! As Roxy, Roland really portrays himself as his female form. Allowing him to express who he is as her is a truly beautiful thing to see!
Alongside Roland and many others, we would usually all gather for London Pride. An annual celebration where our capital sees over a million volunteers, artists and Pride-goers come together, united in their support of the LGBT+ community.
'LGBT is an initialism that stands for lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender. In use since the 1990s, the term is an adaptation of the initialism LGB, which was used to replace the term gay in reference to the LGBT community beginning in the mid-to-late 1980s'
A community that is celebrated for not being stereotyped, ever!
That being said they have launched a online campaign #YouMeUsWe it is a online hashtag with the idea where each of us can reach out and understand one another, demanding us to be better allies within our community.
Sometimes it only takes small but meaningful actions to show that you're there for your fellow community members. During times like these it takes all of us - that includes you, me, us and we - to step up and show it. #YouMeUsWe is a rallying cry to the LGBT+ community, it calls on each of us to reach out, understand and support one another.
To celebrate this campaign #youmeuswe I am having a very special sale of some incredible vintage ex uniform jackets sourced from my local theatre company!
