On Saturday, November 9th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, cosmopolitan genderqueer Baltimore fashion artist Jordi Equitable will lead an interactive discussion about the intersection of fashion and gender identity at Charm City Books (728 Washington Boulevard, Baltimore). Handpicked “lewks” and accessories from Equitable’s wardrobe will adorn the walls and be available for purchase. Jordi will share how to navigate and remain resilient in Baltimore as a genderqueer fashion artist and as the child of Pentecostal missionary parents.
Equitable makes an art of deconstructing social norms by curating colorful fashion art. Born in Mexico and raised in Chile and Bolivia, he brings an international perspective to his work. This past summer he premiered a curated show titled “Redefining Masculinity: Genderqueer Fashion Art Show” that featured 11 models wearing looks styled by Jordi. The show can be viewed on Instagram at Bit.ly/2CfuqIg.
In addition to the discussion, zero-waste beauty products and works by artists and artisans will be for sale. Donuts and drinks will round out the requirements for an amazing event.
