NYT: The British fashion stylist IB Kamara, originally from Sierra Leone, and the South African photographer Kristin Lee-Moolman have collaborated on a project titled “2026,” which addresses heteronormative attitudes to self-expression through fashion. The photographs imagine what men’s wear may look like in 10 years, through the use of fabrics rescued from garbage bins and thrift shops in Johannesburg and made into contemporary garments.
“I wanted to create a utopia where you can be whatever you want to be, without emphasis on masculinity or sexuality,” Mr. Kamara said last week, as he put the finishing touches to the large-scale photographic prints of young African men in dresses now hanging from the walls of Somerset House, one of Britain’s grandest palaces. “I wanted men, in particular black men, to just be able to be and breathe like every other type of man has been able to breathe for centuries, without the pressure and policing of black masculinity lingering over them.”

Just watched The Danish Girl the other night… loved the costume design/ art direction… the movie, not so much. Beautiful to look at but the story didn’t draw me in… and the wigs got worse as it went on. But it made me want to look at the art of Gerda Wegener. Goddess, she was soooooo good! Take a look…
HECTOR BLACK “90-Year-Old Gay Man Recalls Long Struggle With His Sexuality” and other things. (via NPR)
NPR: Ninety-year-old Hector Black has been on Radiolab and StoryCorps, talking about how he forgave the man who murdered one of his daughters. But he tells NPR’s Ari Shapiro a different story — one he hasn’t shared before. It’s his life as a closeted gay man — a husband and a father — who didn’t come out until he was 70 years old.
