SEEING THINGS QUEERLY: What It Means and Why It Matters

An Introduction to Our Brand Philosophy
Welcome to the Seeing Things Queerly blog! In this first post, I want to take a moment to explain what our brand name means and why it's so important to us.
Seeing Things Queerly: Rejecting Norms and Embracing Diversity
Seeing Things Queerly is more than just a clever play on words. It's a philosophy that informs everything we do, from our designs to our mission as a company. But what exactly does it mean to see things queerly?
At its core, seeing things queerly means rejecting the norms and conventions that society imposes on us and instead embracing a more diverse, inclusive, and expansive view of the world. It means recognising that there are infinite ways to be human, and that each of us has a unique and valuable perspective to offer.
Celebrating All Queer Identities and Experiences
For us, seeing things queerly is about celebrating all queer identities and experiences, as well as the intersections of race, gender, sexuality, and other aspects of our identities that make us who we are. It's about creating a world where everyone is seen, heard, and valued for who they are, regardless of whether they fit into society's narrow definitions of what is "normal" or "acceptable."
Fashion as a Tool for Social Change
At Seeing Things Queerly, we believe that fashion can be a powerful tool for self-expression and social change. By creating gender-free apparel and accessories that celebrate queer identities and experiences, we hope to help increase visibility and representation for the LGBTQ+ community. We want to challenge the status quo and inspire others to see things queerly, too.
Join Us in Embracing a Queer Perspective
So whether you're a member of the LGBTQ+ community or an ally, we invite you to join us in embracing a queer perspective on the world. Let's work together to create a more diverse, inclusive, and accepting society, one where everyone can be proud to see things queerly.
In conclusion, Seeing Things Queerly is more than just a brand name. It's a philosophy and a call to action, one that urges us to reject the limitations and conventions that society imposes on us and instead embrace a more diverse, inclusive, and expansive view of the world. By celebrating all queer identities and experiences, and using fashion as a tool for social change, we hope to inspire others to join us in seeing things queerly. So let's work together to create a world where everyone can be proud to be who they are, and where queer perspectives are celebrated and valued.
