Program Description

Event Details

As part of the Library's celebration of Pride Month, join writer and educator Roger Rosen as he examines the intersection of fashion and gender.  Clothes are the most highly public, yet intimate declarations of our identities. Perhaps most profoundly, clothes tell the story of our gender. This program will explore how our culture worships hyperfemininity (Kim Kardashian) and hypermasculinity (The Rock) while beginning to embrace non-binary identities and expressions (Janelle Monáe and Sam Smith). Exploring how clothes uphold or transgress gender boundaries, we’ll look through history and across cultures to examine the impact of laws, trade, marketing, and other factors on fashion and our perception of gender.
