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.
