queer fashion & gender bending

A few weeks ago, I wrote this post about why I use the word "queer" to describe myself these days rather than "gay," and I've been thinking about a lot of related things over the last few days. Specifically, I was thinking about the role fashion plays in how we construct our own notions of self, and I was going to do a Twitter thread on it (lol), but I decided that it was going to end up being hella long and went for a blog post instead. So, no, that header quote isn't supposed to be making any philosophical statements. It's more a joke at myself that I tend to wear mostly black, white, gray, and navy. But also I suppose you could say it's a double entendre, because it's also to say that things aren't always (and I'd venture to say usually not) binary.
