Best 2019 Queer Emmy Looks

The 2019 Emmys proved to be – yet again – lacking in diversity. According to Vogue, “while Emmys in 26 categories were handed out at Sunday night’s hostless ceremony in Los Angeles, only three—yes, three—major awards went to people of color.” But the queer communities still had some historic wins (Billy Porter became the first openly gay black Emmy winner, winning Lead Actor in a Drama for Pose) and continued to steal the show when it came to fashion. dapperQ contributor and queer Filipina creative, Alithea Castillo, rounded up her top five queer Emmy looks, receipts of how queer style is still on top of the fashion game.

A closer look at Cox’s clutch: An Edie Parker clutch that raised awareness about an upcoming Supreme Court hearing, which will decide if anti-LGBTQ employment discrimination qualifies as sex discrimination. To make the political point even clearer, she brought Chase Strangio along as her date. On October 8, Strangio is arguing an anti-discrimination case in front of the court on behalf of a transgender client fired from her job after coming out as trans in 2013. Photo: Getty


Zendaya – we love her as Rue on Euphoria, one of the queerest shows on T.V. She gets honorary mention, turning heads in a Vera Wang sheer corset dress. Photo: Getty
