“I’m doing this show because i really like the idea of us wearing things that represent our identities, and doing it publicly and not really caring who is watching and what they’re thinking—just kind of doing your thing for a little bit. I really like accessories and wearing fun colors, because a long time ago, I was the opposite of that, so I feel like this is a celebration of how far I’ve come and how far people around me have come in our journey.” -Maya Henry ‘20
People enjoy the Fashion Show festivities.
“I’m the LGBTQ+ Fellow, and I basically help organize these events. I think it’s really cool for students to be able to express who they are so authentically.” -Cooper Kidd (pictured on right)

“For me, fashion has always been a way to express part of my identity. I’ve gone through so many aspects of it—I used to dress hyper-fem, but now my style has shifted a lot and I think this walk is an opportunity to be more out about who I am and sort of celebrating everyone’s different ways of expressing who they are. And how beautiful everyone in the queer and trans community is, and all the different styles we have to express ourselves.” -Gretchen Trupp ‘18
