About the hot, hot, hot fashion

Inspired by the vibrance and vitality of young newcomers, Newcomers Youth created Queer Basics, a gender neutral fashion collection made by queer activists for fellow queer activists. Made to be comfortable enough for a night in reading the latest manifesto, durable enough for a long day of protesting and with modern tailoring to make sure you look good for all those press photos.

Hosted by Yolanda Bohm with performances by Armin Gray, Nomai Camara and Dgeral
