Subcultural style series.

Summary

"Queer style" offers an insight into queer fashionability by addressing the role that clothing has played in historical and contemporary lifestyles. From a fashion studies perspective, it examines the function of subcultural dress within queer communities and the mannerisms and messages that are used as signifiers of identity. Diverse dress is examined, including effeminate 'pansy, ' masculine macho 'clone, ' the 'lipstick' and 'butch' lesbian styles and the extreme styles of drag kings and drag queens. Divided into three main sections on history, subculturalidentity and subcultural style, "Queer style" will be of particular interest to students of dress and fashion as well as those coming to subculture from sociology and cultural studies.
