It’s a visual example of how old and new can bond together to create something cohesive and beautiful in even the most challenging circumstances.

In imposing an intimate partnership on a casual friendship with benefits, we both found something truly intimate.

Welcome to our fashion-editorial rebellion: one without designer labels or advertisers, turning the spotlight instead on drag queens in head-to-toe self-styled looks that will make your jaw drop.

“Nothing about gender identity is fixed,” Ohlert writes. “Its development is often a fluid process, changing throughout a lifetime.

What makes this web of cables and computers a technological spectacle is that it allows people to invent new worlds and reside in them. …
