Queer and Adjacent Women Rock #DressLikeAWoman

Dressed like a woman

Donald Trump presumably has a specific idea of what fashion and mannerisms constitute a woman, but the internet and #DressLikeAWoman beg to differ. 

In light of Donald Trump's long history of misogynistic remarks about women, capped by the truly horrifying "I grab them by the pussy" without consent revelation, it comes as no surprise that his expectations of women are based on his narrow views of gender roles. Trump requires the people who work for him to adhere to fairly outmoded forms of gender representation like insisting that women "dress like women," Axios reports. What it looks like to "dress like a woman" is anyone's guess, which is why the internet blew up with photos of women in clothes suitable for doctors, scientists, fighter pilots, law enforcement officers, business executives, athletes, congressional representatives, and so on -- all accompanied by the "DressLikeAWoman" hashtag. Since the phrase "dress like a woman" began trending last Thursday, tens of thousands of women have posted photos to Twitter and Instagram, illustrating an endless array of fashion options that don't make someone more or less a woman.

Since gender expression is so significant to the queer community, we scoured Instagram and Twitter to find #DressLikeAWoman posts by and of some of our favorite queer and queer-adjacent women who represent a range of style and expression.
