NCY Creates

NCY Creates are the creative projects from Newcomers Youth. The projects celebrate the resilience, strength and stories of LGBTQ asylum seeking youth.

QUEER BASICS PROJECT

Queer Basics is a fashion collection to raise awareness, to spread ideas from LGBT and queer movements and to inspire and empower communities in their fight for justice and freedom.

It is 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.

All proceeds go to sustaining Newcomers Youth community building and legal counseling services.
