"The current situation for trans* undergarments and for people with disabilities is that we shouldn’t be stylish, because we should ‘want to blend in’. […] I am using ‘Radical Visibility’ as a call to action to dress in order to not be ignored, to reject ‘passing’ and assimilation.[…] Rebirth Garments are custom-made gender non-conforming lingerie, wearables and accessories for people on the full spectrum of gender, size and ability.

"I hope to provide an option that truly fulfills all these needs because feeling confident in one’s outward appearance can revolutionize one’s emotional and political reality. This movement celebrates the contradiction. We, as QueerCrips, are living contradictions […] society says we are not beautiful and definitely not sexy, so we have to make our own sexiness that is not based on heteronormative ideas of beauty."

Excerpts from Sky Cubacub’s QueerCrip Dress Reform Movement Manifesto

Sky Cubacub is the founder of Rebirth Garments. The line focuses on QueerCrip fashion- a politicized umbrella term that encompasses queer, gender nonconforming identities, visible and invisible disabilities/ disorders—physical, mental, developmental, emotional ect.

The event will feature a fashion show with local models, and an opportunity to discuss Sky’s QueerCrip Dress Reform Movement manifesto.

No performance or modeling experience needed!
If you identify as any – or a combo of – the following: queer, crip (any disability or disorder, including but not limited to physical, emotional, mental, developmental, psychological), POC (Person of Color), trans*, non-binary, intersex, etc. Sky is looking for people of all sizes and ages! Also especially excited if you do any type of disability justice or queer activism!!

Please message Sky by September 30 if you wish to participate!
