Street Fashion – Oakland – Capricorn party

Posted: January 16, 2009 in Queer Fashion Pictures

Cherry Flamingo looking fabulously femme at the Capricorn party.

Cherry is playing with femme presentation. The outfit is over the top femme, but the outfit includes pants under the dress.
I would not label this High Femme. My question is why do I feel this way? I think it is intention. What separates queer gender from outfits or costumes/ I feel it is intention. Is there an intention to denaturalize femininity, or to express it? I feel that Cherry does privilege artifice over realness, but she I do not feel that her intention is gender transgressive. I may be wrong. Cherry may tell us if we ask nicely.
