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.
