RuPaul famously quipped, “We’re all born naked. The rest is drag.” Fashion and jewelry have always had the ability to transform and inform a full spectrum of identities. Dressing up allows individuals to explore, express, and challenge ideas of race, class, gender, and sexuality beyond a binary. From Donna Summer, the queen of disco, to shoe designer Thom Solo, this lecture highlights the influences and inspirations that mainstream fashion trends have derived from queer culture and theory.
