About your host, Rocio Sanchez
Growing up in New York City as a queer kid, I was surrounded by the most fashionable people. I also grew up following every fashion trend on every social media, and that was a recipe for self-loathing.
I found myself through fashion, first having a blast exploring hyper-femininity, until I realized there was more for me to explore — personally, aesthetically, and even academically.
Fast forward a few years later in Paris, where you would have found me writing a master’s thesis on queer fashion, and researching LGBT communities from Brighton and Berlin to Chicago and San Francisco. How LGBT people express themselves through style is eternally inventive, it’s something that can be appreciated in so many ways – I didn’t need to travel across continents to see that.
After graduating (MA Fashion Studies, Parsons Paris, 2020) and starting my digital marketing agency, it became clear to me that our community’s inventiveness doesn’t stop at aesthetics. It travels through language, arts and even business. This podcast highlights those contributions that I barely saw acknowledged in my 10+ years working in and studying the fashion industry.
