RICK OWENS OWENED PARIS FASHION WEEK

Feminist Blog Roll

gal2

Gal is a gallery based in Limehouse where what we know as girly will be the uncoded. With a pink floor this is what the artists and visitors have to adapt their art or mind to. Newly opened and yet to be defined, we know, when a Gal grows up post 2k, the internet is hard to escape. Just as the www that raised us, we are still happy to announce this physical space.

Quote of the Week

Black transgender people had an unemployment rate of 26%, twice that of transgender people as a whole, and four times the general population. 34% reported income under $10,000/year, more the double the poverty rate of all trans people, and over eight times that of the general population. These studies confirm what many in the community already know: that those with intersecting identities such as being a trans-woman and a person of color experience one oppression compounded by another.
