In today’s episode, we’re talking about something that we all have to deal with, learn to manage, and that shapes queer identity. We’re talking about Hair. Good Gay Hair.
In queer circles, hair is political. It defines how we want to be seen, where we sit in our queer identity and the ease of which we can navigate the world. I’ve been obsessed with what makes a good gay haircut for the better part of a decade. So what is good gay hair?
In my search, I found a place where hair dreams come true. Where amazing stylists will talk hair politics with you. They’ll talk hair health. And about gender expression. And about real-life queer life.
