Underneath. In the dark. We only dare in counterculture in hiding, out of fear of reprisals. We keep to the shadows to do what brings us light. We move around under the radar, but we are still true to our beliefs and our DNA. The DNA that's unfocused from community rules and insists on choosing exaggerated frills, spiraled dresses, overly long sleeves and pointed shoes. But these choices, which for others may seem marginal, are, for ourselves, a manifestation of identity. Even if clandestine. Photography by Paul Hyde. Styling by Alex Montoya.
