OUT at CHM | Celebrating and Contextualizing Queer Fashion
From Masc4Masc camouflage of the ’70s to DIY club kids of the ’80s to dandies through the ages, turning heads ain’t nothing new. Take in an array of head-turning designs that flip the script on gender norms, celebrate young contemporary fashion designers and discover how we’ve arrived at today’s Instagram-fueled hypervisible boom in queer fashion. Stay for a panel discussion that contextualizes today’s queer fashion within the history of fashion and Chicago’s queer past.
Now in its fifteenth year, the Museum’s popular and provocative series delves into the storied history of Chicago’s LGBTQ communities. This season, join us as we explore the connections between activism of the past and today and how calls to action propel cultural disruption.
Major support for Out at CHM comes from the Exelon Corporation with additional support from Robert Kohl and Clark Pellett and the Richard L. Ohlhausen Education Fund.
