Comunidad LGTBI y la industria de la moda

LGTBI community and the fashion industry

Perhaps not all members of the LGBT community would agree with the stereotype that gays simply know fashion; However, it is a fact that they generally tend to be more fashion conscious than the rest.

Have you asked yourself why? Generally, throughout time, different groups that have been socially marginalized due to their race, gender, and sexual orientation have found a form of manifestation in art, music, and culture. That is why fashion has also been an important tool to demand equality and change through style choices.

In fact, there are several designers in this community who have a long and celebrated history in the fashion industry. Designers like Gianni Versace, Alexander McQueen, Tom Ford, Yves Saint Laurent have influenced every corner of the world in this acclaimed industry.

What is Pride Month?

Pride Month commemorates the Stonewall uprisings of June 28, 1969. That day, the NYPD raided the Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village. This inn was a popular place of refuge for New York's LGBTI community. The police raid sparked a series of demonstrations and riots that are now known as the Stonewall uprisings. This historic event is considered the beginning of the LGBTI rights movement.

Since that time, Pride Month has been celebrated in many ways. Typical celebrations include colorful pride parades, parties, concerts, workshops and memorials. Companies show their support by donating to LGBTI causes and adopting the rainbow flag in their logos.

In the world of fashion, brands celebrate pride through LGBTI social media content and donations to nonprofit organizations. Companies also partner with queer celebrities to launch Pride-themed couture collections. For example, H&M partnered with transgender actress Laverne Cox in 2019 to launch its "Stay True, Stay You" campaign.

unisex clothing

People in today's society have had enough of being told what to do, who to love, and what to wear based on their gender. Many of us are starting to identify as gender neutral, so the rules that say boys wear blue and girls wear pink are just the beginning of what no longer applies. So go out and get an extravagant floral blouse from the women's department, even if you're a straight man, or get a pair of Crocs because it's the perfect unisex shoe that will help you embrace your own gender neutrality, whatever sex you are. .
