Showcasing LGBTQIA+ modes of expression to expand our visual representation

We Appreciate Your Support!


Until now (June 2017), Qwear has been run exclusively by volunteers supporting the website out of our own pockets.

In light of the new U.S. administration and the increase in discrimination and hate crimes against LGBTQIA+ populations, we have decided to expand our work to reach members of the community whose stories haven't yet been told.

Support us for as little as $1/month and be a part of history!

Smaller, monthly donations on Patreon helps us budget and plan our programming:

Through the creation of consistent positive visual representation of queer expression, we aim to unify to LGBTQIA+ population and our allies in our fight for liberation. 

The queer fashion climate is rapidly changing. Our work will soon be viewed as one of the few historical documents of the styles and attitudes of our community during this pivotal era in queer history.


Your support helps with overhead costs including website hosting, photographer honoraria, and travel costs for events and photoshoots. 

We frequently turn down advertising offers which attempt to exploit our community. This means that we rely on community support to keep running and providing high quality content.

You can also make a one-time donation. This helps us too!

Thank you for your support! Together we will fight for LGBQIA+ liberation.

Press Quotes

Qwear provides a crucial platform for the marginalized and too often victimized members of the LGBTQ community. As queer individuals grow into their true identities, Qwear can be used as a trusted guide and safe space for all.

Qwear has shown me a huge variety of subcultures, aesthetics, and expressions within a world that I had initially thought was very narrow!

For our son to see a community that acts as both a mirror and a window to who is and who he may become is essential to his developing sense of self.
— Tracey
Qwear has given me an opportunity to connect with people on a deeper level — to better understand their stories and the ways in which their stories align with and diverge from my own. As a result, I’m able to develop empathy, hold and process complexity, and grow my capacity to develop safe and meaningful relationships.
