100 Most Stylish dapperQs 2019

In July 2013, dapperQ published our first ever list of 100 Most Stylish dapperQs. This was by far one of our most popular posts, but was by no means exhaustive. Since the original post was not comprehensive enough to capture all of the amazing dapper that exists in our community, our team decided to compile an annual list of 100 most stylish dapperQs. This year is our SEVENTH anniversary of this piece!

Important things to know about this list…

Those on the 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, and 2018 lists are, for the most part, not eligible for the 2019 list because we want to reserve space to celebrate other members our community. But, not to worry; those on the first list, on the second list, on the third list, on the fourth list, on the fifth list and on the sixth list still hold their titles.

Individuals were selected based on a nomination system. Don’t see someone you think should be on here? Nominate them for the 2018 list by e-mailing [email protected]

Our list is trans inclusive because our mission has always been to be a fashion and empowerment website for the unconventionally masculine: masculine and androgynous presenting women, gender queers, and trans identified individuals — anyone who has been told that masculinity, androgyny, and masculine-leaning non-binary style is off limits to them.

This is NOT A RANKED LIST!!

This list is not based on sexual orientation, but rather style and expression.

Nominees have a range of styles: some are fluid, and many do not fit neatly into the gender binary. Styles range from andro-chic, to dandy, to tomboy, to rock n’ roll, and more…

“Eff that! Where’s all the high femme fashion?” We agree 100% and have recently started a sibling project, Hi Femme! We have received A LOT of push back and criticism for it. But, femme visibility is important and we plan on moving forward regardless of the haters. Our goal was to have a list that integrates Hi Femme! this 2019 edition, but we are still working on building a solid archive of images that represent a diverse range of femme expression. We do not want to run a piece that is not inclusive and intersectional. If you know of a fierce femme to feature, please feel free to nominate them at [email protected] We need more submissions, and they come from you!!!
