#QueeringFem Collection

By Jacqui-Lee Katz

In a move towards unfixing stereotypical notions of femininity, #QueeringFem portrays a diverse range of individuals from LGBTIQQAA and gender non-conforming “communities” who actively access and embody femininity in various ways.

The collection signals a radical shift away from fixed commonsense notions of sex and gender towards more fluid ways of thinking around these constructs and how they intersect with culture, religion, race, sexuality and identity in 21st century South Africa. It contributes to a robust body of existing work that aims to carve out spaces for alternative renditions of history and modes of living to come into visibility in ways that demand fluidity and heterogeneity.
