Hi y'all! Would any LGBTQ+ people be interested in being interviewed/videoed about q***r fashion? My group partner and I are looking for q***r folks that have personal fashion they'd like to share with an audience. We'd love an artistic angle for the video as well! If you or someone you know is interested, send them my way! This is for Loran Marsan's LGBTQ Media Action class.
