DapperQ is the premier queer style and empowerment website specifically for masculine presenting women and trans-identified individuals. Dubbed GQ for the “unconventionally masculine,” dapperQ was among the first digital spaces to champion “menswear” for those traditionally under-served by mainstream menswear media and designers. dapperQ produces wide-ranging original content and events for which it has received media coverage in The New York Times, Vice, Nylon, Refinery29, The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post, and The Washington Post, to name a few. Our events have been showcased at world renowned cultural institutions, including Brooklyn Museum, the Institute for Contemporary Art/Boston, and the California Academy of Sciences. dapperQ will host the first ever queer style panel at SxSW as part of the official 2016 Sxstyle showcase. In the words of Anita Dolce Vita, “dapperQ is a queer fashion revolution, one of the most stylish forms of protest of our generation.”
