How-To Tie a BowTie (VIDEO)

Readers have been asking for our own queer how-to tie a bowtie video since dapperQ launched. In honor of the Butch Voices conference held recently in Oakland, we actually made it happen! Learn and laugh along with master teacher Ariel Speedwagon and grasshopper Lea Robinson.

Don’t be fooled. It’ simple but it’s not easy. Every time I do it, I manage to tie myself in knots. But it’s a bold fresh look. Self-tied, it makes a statement that can’t be mistaken. Go on, tie one on.
