The American LGBTQ+ Museum is starting 2023 with glamour and magic with its event, in partnership with the New-York Historical Center for Women’s History.
Glamour Magick: Queer Fashion and Witchcraft will feature Dia Dynasty, Hogan McLaughlin, Colleen Hill, Kendrick Daye, and Keren Ben-Horin as moderator.
What: Modern witchcraft practitioners and historical narratives alike have referred to “glamour” as a witch’s ability to harness beauty, power and sex. A glamour is a spell that can be “worn” by its weaver, a description that conjures new meaning to fashion and the ways in which our clothes are an extension of our energy. In that spirit, celebrate the closing weekend of The Salem Witch Trials: Reckoning and Reclaiming with a panel discussion that investigates the intersections of fashion, witchcraft, and queer subcultures from the American LGBTQ+ Museum and New-York Historical’s Center for Women’s History.
Join the conversation featuring fashion designer Hogan McLaughlin; Colleen Hill, curator of Fairy Tale Fashion at MFIT; Dia Dynasty, a New York-based Shamanatrix included in photographer Frances Denny’s project, Major Arcana; artist Kendrick Daye, creator of the Queer Black Tarot deck; and moderator Keren Ben-Horin, fashion historian and Curatorial Scholar in Women’s History. Stay after the panel to view the exhibition in the Joyce B. Cowin Women’s History Gallery and enter a raffle to have your fortune read in our beautiful Skylight Gallery.
