CHICAGO ( March 7, 2018 ) — From Masc4Masc camouflage of the '70s to DIY club kids of the '80s to dandies through the ages, turning heads ain't nothing new. Explore queer fashion at the Chicago's History Museum's Out at CHM event "Celebrating and Contextualizing Queer Fashion."

The event takes place on Thursday, March 22, 2018, at the Chicago History Museum. The program begins at 6:30 p.m. while a reception kicks-off the event at 5:30 p.m.

The program includes a panel discussion and fashion show featuring an array of head-turning designs that flip the script on gender norms and celebrate young contemporary fashion designers.

The following participants* will explore how we've arrived at today's Instagram-fueled hyper-visible boom in queer fashion and more:

-Sky CubaCub, creator of Rebirth Garments, specializing in Trans, gender queer and disability-specific needs in lingerie and swimwear.

-Ciera Mckissick, founder of AMFM, a lifestyle brand and incubator space based in Chicago; and Dapper Ball, a 2017 sold-out event that celebrated masculine off-center fashion in the queer community.

-Kelly Reddy-Best, queer fashion historian and assistant professor in Apparel, Merchandising and Design at Iowa State University

This is the first of three programs in the Out at CHM 2018 series. The next program "Undocumented and Queer" will take place on Tuesday, April 24, 2018, at the Chicago History Museum.

Now in its fifteenth year, the Museum's popular and provocative series delves into the storied history of Chicago's LGBTQ communities. This season, the programs explore the connections between activism of the past and today and how calls to action propel cultural disruption.

Admission to each program is $20 for the general public and $15 for Museum members and students. To purchase tickets and for program and panelists updates visit chicagohistory.org/outatchm.

Major support for Out at CHM comes from the Exelon Corporation with additional support from Robert Kohl and Clark Pellett and the Richard L. Ohlhausen Education Fund.
