The 100 Most Stylish dapperQs

GQ regularly publishes a list of most stylish cis-men. Autostraddle recently posted their list of hot 100 girls who like girls. Vogue has their list of most stylish cis-women. So, isn’t it high time that some stylish dapperQs get some well deserved media recognition and visibility? Here is our list of the 100 most stylish dapperQs. (In no particular order; this is not a ranked list.) If you feel we’ve left someone off, suggest them in the comments section below to nominate them for next year’s list.
