dapperQ’s He Said/We Said has been getting around as of late. For the last two editions, we documented queer style in Vermont and Philly. And now, for our 21st edition, we’ve invited some dashing and stylish queers of Cincinnati to show us their swag.
Photographer Cassandra Zetta, along with Anita Dolce Vita, selected the Orley Fall 2014 menswear collection as inspiration. Here’s what Zetta had to say about the inspiration and overall experience:
Being involved with this project left me with a sense of gratitude as I watched these incredible people be empowered through clothing, acceptance, and community. When choosing Orley as the designer, I felt that this line would provide both a stylish and relevant look for the times, while also being attainable. When paired with an urban location in downtown Cincinnati, it allowed the apparel to be noticed, and appreciated.
The full editorial, including model bios and outfit descriptions, can be found here on our publishing partner, Autostraddle. But, dapperQ is honored to present additional images from the amazingly stylish Philly queers:
