This year, dapperQ will highlight fashion photography with a live screening of our ‘He Said/We Said’ Series – a Project involving 17 Amazing Photographers – our VIPs of the night!

He Said/We Said is a fashion photography project that documents masculine style worn by women, gender-queers, and trans* identified individuals. It is a regular feature on dapperQ.com, which has received press from the New York Times, Washington Post, Huffington Post, Huffington Post Live, AfterEllen, Autostraddle, Jezebel, and many other media sources.

Raffle tickets will be drawn at random for the following prizes:

► The first three raffle ticket winners announced will receive one Founders shirt by dotBK (worth $68 each).

► The fourth raffle ticket winner announced will receive a gift bag with one Founders shirt by dotBK (worth $68) and one pair of Tani USA limited edition air fitness boxer briefs (worth $45).
