Hi Femme! Elizabeth Kuhr

Welcome back to Hi Femme!, dapperQ’s sibling visibility project celebrating the incredible contributions that stylish femmes make to the queer fashion landscape. For this edition, we’re featuring Elizabeth Kuhr, a New York-based producer at NBC Nightly News and a digital contributor. She’s often on the run—literally. Elizabeth is a big fan of coffee, cameras, her girlfriend and her queer squad. She speaks to high school Gender Sexuality Alliances through the nonprofit LiveOutLoud.

Hi Femme!: Can you talk a bit about how you define queer femme style and what makes it transgressive?

Elizabeth: Queer femme style is transgressive because regardless of gender it’s unexpected. For me, my sexuality and my femmeness go hand-in-hand. They strongly influence how I experience the world and how it sees me. Femme, despite the mainstream attempt to undermine/demean/silence it, is power. I think being a feminine queer is my strength—I am who I am with no excuses.

Hi Femme!: How would you describe your personal style?

Elizabeth: Simple, symmetrical and powerfully femme. Like the color red.

Hi Femme!: Who are your fashion icon(s)?

Elizabeth: Memoirist and LGBTQ advocate Lucy Sutcliffe. Her style and makeup are on point.

Hi Femme!: What item in your style arsenal can you not live without?

Elizabeth: A quirky watch.
