I’m Josie, I take She pronouns.
I’m Fay I also take She pronouns.
I mean I’ve always kind of dressed like a tomboy since I was a kid. I hated girly things, but I’ve never really thought much of it.
I quite like wearing checked shirts and stuff. I felt like, I don’t know, sometimes when you see someone on the street and you’re both wearing a checked shirt and you’re typically gay stuff and you have that eye contact and you’re ‘Yeah I know, I know what you’re doing’ and that’s quite nice.
I have a gay drawer of my clothes. I think my aesthetic is just quite gay, it’s not like I’m trying to be really. It’s not like I wake up in the morning with ‘how gay can I dress today?’
I’m going to do that tomorrow, but apart from at Pride, I always kind of wore what I’m comfortable wearing. There’s probably some thing you could look into about why queer kids feel comfortable wearing typically queer clothes and to do with identity. I just wear it because I like it. I like wearing it on my body. I don’t feel like I’m walking out, like I’m representing the bisexuals in the world.
I’m often told I dress quite gay, but I’m not consciously trying to. I mean, I remember when I got checked shirts and I wore them out, I felt happy, because I felt like I was kind of accepting of I’m wearing this queer stuff and I am queer, it is cool. It’s kind of a self-acceptance thing, but I don’t remember consciously, ‘Now I must dress different, let’s throw out all my clothes, I’m a gay now, we’re going to get new ones in!’
