Fashionasty Headquarters, (like Bella Swan, I’m a day late! Sorry!) asks that you take some time to reflect and remember our trans sisters and brothers who have been killled by transphobia. Here/Queer at Fashionasty Headquarters, we leave gender conformity at the door/whore – and fashionasties wouldn’t be able to be as brave as they are strutting their stillettos to the beat of their own runw(g)ay as they walk the fashionasty catwalk for lyfe without their trans siblings.
There’s no w(g)ay to rationalize GLBT hate crimes. It makes me so angry and so sad when we lose another god or goddess simply for being true to themselves. I’d like to think in some small fashion that maybe our trans siblings who have passed on were too gorgeous, too magical, and possibly TOO MUCH for this world.
This planet doesn’t deserve you. The close-minded closeted biggots of the world will get theirs too, don’t you worry. We’re building our own Queer Army!
Here/Queer at Fashionasty Headquarters, we love you, we honor you, and we miss you. We’ll keep fighting, and we’ll keep being fabulous. Wait for us on the other side of the rainbow when it’s our time and we’ll walk hand-in-hand to the valley of the dolls. Today, I’ll sprinkle some glitter on the globe just for you!
