What do you think of when you think of the LGBTQ community and fashion? From Billy Porter to Jojo Siwa, some of the biggest fashion icons of this century are also part of the queer community. Queer people in fashion is by no means a new concept, though. In fact, the LGBTQ community has been slicing its way through the fashion industry despite anti-LGBTQ laws and sometimes even fear for their lives since well before Porter and Siwa came onto the scene. In fact, it’s because the gay trendsetters of yesteryear worked so hard that we can lace up our thigh-high boots and tie in our giant bows with confidence.
