I was asked why I dress so well earlier this week. Being a young queer trans woman, everything I do is under scrutiny. Every article I write, every sentence I form, and every step I take is under inspection because of who I am. Trans women are assumed to be scary monsters and youth are assumed to not know what we’re doing. Both of these assumptions are wrong. I dress how I do to reclaim my body and identities from these narratives. I wear these clothes in order to uplift my communities through defeating the ageist and anti-trans assumptions we are told every day. I have this aesthetic to imagine a future where all trans youth are able to express our gender how we want, without assumptions and without limitations.
Preorders for Antmouth t-shirts and Party Animal Sweatshirts are up on Etsy, available in sizes S-3X! They’re open until the 31st for now, but I would need 12 preorders for each to complete an order, so if the minimum isn’t met by the final date, the preorder period will be extended. Preorder Antmouth here!
I am so pleased with the way this turned out. I look like I have wings! The fabric is so light and fluttery. I’ll be wearing this to Pagan Pride Day later this month. I’m planning on designing more of these, but for right now it just comes in Cecropia and Luna Moth styles.
