Anita Dolce Vita, DapperQ Style: Ungendering Fashion

Saturday, October 21, 2023 - 6:00pm

We are excited to welcome Anita Dolce Vita to celebrate the release of her book, DapperQ Style: Ungendering Fashion. Anita will be joined in conversation with a panel of LGBTQIA+ activists, artists, and performers, including Marshall Martinez, Executive Director of Equality NM; and Avery Martini, drag model/performance artist, costume designer, and Creative Director/Producer of the Chocolate Factory ABQ.

From the editor-in-chief of leading queer style magazine dapperQ, a bold, beautiful, and inclusive collection that encourages everyone to be comfortable expressing their own personal style however they choose.

Fashion plays a significant role in the construction of identity. How we style our clothing and adorn our bodies sends a message not only about who we are as individuals, but the norms and values of communities, cultures, and societies across the world. For too long, mainstream Western fashion has promoted unattainable beauty standards and restrictive binaries as a means of social control.

As editor-in-chief of leading queer style magazine dapperQ, Anita Dolce Vita has provided a platform that transcends these rigid, exclusionary, and oppressive fashion rules, inspiring people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender presentations to think differently about both queer fashion and beauty as art and visual activism and ultimately have a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with style. She believes that fashion should reflect who we are and values such as visibility, belonging, and liberation. In this refreshing style book, she shows that, no matter your gender identity, race, body size, ability, age, or style, queer fashion is for everyone.

Anita Dolce Vita is editor-in-chief of leading queer style magazine dapperQ, a queer style writer, and executive event producer behind some of the world's largest celebrations of queer style, including fashion showcases at the Brooklyn Museum and the first ever queer style panel to be featured at the South by Southwest conference. Anita was born in Albuquerque, NM and now lives in New York City.
