Heading to Mr. Transman 2010 Now!!!

Tonight is Mr. Transman 2010, a first-ever event hosted by the dashing, clever and qualified Mr. Murray Hill! I’m so excited to revel in and celebrate the majesty of my community! I honestly did try to come up with some guidelines for evening wear, but the crap I found – “wear the gown, don’t let it wear you!” – wasn’t helpful.  When I asked Trent, who is organizing the event, if the contestants had been givenany guidelines for what constitutes evening wear, he told me to just expect the unexpected.

But I also got some great criteria through the Twittersphere including this back and forth:

@seeloganrun Obviously “dapper”-ness. Queering/transgressing masculine fashion in a way that seems authentic and unique to the individual

@canihelpyousir I’d give high marks to those who pick clothes that actually flatter them over those wearing something just because it’s masculine.

@seeloganrun I think that is a great criteria- dressing w/intention rather than what seems masculine for masculinity’s sake.

All I know is I am psyched to see and be part of this inaugural event. I’ve got a dapperQ question teed up to ask contestants as well.  I’ll be tweeting live from the event and reporting back soon!
