Nylon magazine just produced a two-part video celebrating QPOC dandyism. The first video examines the work that The Dandy Lion Project (by Shantrelle P. Lewis) and dapperQ (by Anita Dolce Vita) have done in providing platforms to showcase how dandies reshape society’s perception of Black masculinity. The second video is centered on the personal profiles of representatives of the dapperQ community, including Devin-Norelle, Kay Ulanday Barrett, DJ Monet Bernard, Nina Kossoff, Danielle Cooper, and Kim Geronimo.
