The dapperQ Brand
dapperQ is one of the world’s most widely read digital queer style magazines and is a preeminent voice in queer fashion and beauty. We inspire people of all sexual orientations, gender identities, and gender presentations to think differently about both queer fashion and beauty as art and visual activism, and ultimately have a deeper, more fulfilling relationship with style.
What started out a decade ago as a personal blog focusing on masculine style, dapperQ has since expanded into a multi-platform brand that includes panels, fashion shows, and the celebration of the full spectrum of queer style with our sibling project Hi Femme! Our wide-ranging original content and events have received media coverage in The New York Times, HBO, NBC News, Vanity Fair, Vice, Nylon, Refinery29, The Daily Beast, The Huffington Post, and The Washington Post, to name a few. Our events have been showcased at world renowned cultural institutions, including Brooklyn Museum, the Institute for Contemporary Art/Boston, the Museum of Fine Arts/Boston, and the California Academy of Sciences. dapperQ produced the first ever queer style panel at SXSW as part of the official 2016 Sxstyle showcase and was asked to return in 2017, 2018, and 2019 to speak as experts in ungendering beauty and fashion.
dapperQ has a loyal, unduplicated audience and we offer exceptional opportunities to connect with diverse communities. Let’s work!
