Welcome to the home of queerfabulous fashion!
I created Qwear as a platform for lesbians, queerhomos, women with gender nonconforming styles, and transmaculine people to share their experiences around clothing.
Queer culture has a long standing history of “bad dressers” because we wanted to create our own fashion aesthetic, or present more masculine than our culture can equip us with. Queers have also been invalidated for NOT dressing a certain way (hey, sorry femmes.) So, Qwear is empowerment for us to look hott dressing the way we want, while subverting whatever we want.
Whether you are a queeny dyke, a straight woman in a bow tie, or a 13-year-old boy who accidentally stumbled upon this while trying to find some damn clothes, I welcome you with open arms. Anyone who finds inspiration from this blog should be a part of it. FYI, I tend to address all my readers as homoz out of endearment.
I want Qwear to be a community rich with fashion tips, inspiration, and encouragement. I aim for Qwear to be a source of queerspiration to people of all shapes, gender presentations, cultures, and ethnicities. To help us make that happen, please SUBMIT! Feeling fantabulous and having a friend with a camera is all you need to be on Qwear.

I’ve written for the style column of Equally Wed, and currrently serve on Autostraddle’s fashion council among an extraordinary group of queers. I am the marketing assistant for Fourteen, a clothing line of classic suit separates specially tailored for the lesbian, queer, and trans community. All my outfits are under the Sonia tag.
