I own my homosexuality. I feel like people tell me all the time you don’t look gay, so I try to be as gay as possible. Women’s clothing inspires me. I love Audrey Hepburn, Jackie Kennedy Onassis, and I am a huge Beyoncé fan.” —Dairis Bogues

“I like going on Instagram for style inspiration. I feel like jumpsuits as well as stripes are really in this year and they are great for the summer.” —Chelsea Zou


“We were coming to the TLC concert, so I wanted throw it back to the '90s. I am definitely a '90s kid, so I love 90s inspired looks. I also love androgynous-inspired looks.” —Claire Walker

I love the culture at Artscape. You see people you wouldn’t normally see cross paths here. I also love how the people here express themselves through art, clothes, and music. —Tracee

My dad is from from Senegal, so my style can be very Afrocentric. I love going outside of the box, and basically going left when everyone is going right. —Bryant

“I love that at Artscape all of the freaks are allowed to come out. I love that everyone is allowed to be here. I’ve been coming since I was 17 years old. I discovered it by accident, but I’ve been coming ever since.

Now that I’m older, I can go full out with my outfit—I can throw on some glitter and wear a bunny backpack if I want to.” —Mana Colter


“I like to dress for comfort. My shirt only has four buttons and is really lightweight so it’s really easy to wear. I am a fan of Kate Mara’s style and British menswear. I’m really into plain colors and stripes.” —Kiersten Patron
