celebratory conversations!

To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of my feminist fashion blog “à l’allure garçonnière,” I am moving to WordPress. One of my original goals with the creation of this feminist fashion blog was to foster conversations with my readers; here on WordPress, I can respond to comments in a much more productive fashion.

Change is good.

So if you are new to à l’allure garçonnière, or even if you are one of my faithful readers, welcome! Here is a bit about your author:

julia caron is a critical queer artist/writer living in Québec City.

She has worked extensively as a journalist, activist and photographer. Her work has been published in Arthur, the Ryerson Free Press,WORN journal, Missy Magazine, in addition to a bi-monthly film review column at the Shameless Magazine blog. She also has extensive experience in radio, having hosted a bi-monthly show on Trent Radio from 2005-2006, in addition to recent work for CBC Radio’s Quebec Community Network.

Her activism has taken many different shapes over the years, ranging from wheatpasting anti-war posters in small town Ontario to performing in drag in front of hundreds. More recently, she has taken to giving workshops on a variety of topics, including Femmes et Médias : Résistance Culturelle, Sexual Violence in the Democratic Republic of Congo and Thrifting 101: Buying used as a political act. In 2010, she organized the Québec City edition of The Vagina Monologues with Salima Punjani. These days, writing is her preferred form of resistance.

She is also an amateur ukulele enthusiast and photographer. To find out more about her self-portraits, watch this interview by karol orzechowski.
