At RunwayRiot, we recognize that the fight for body acceptance gets stronger every day on the backs of body positive people. With RunwayRiot’s tell-all video series My Body My Story, we take you up close with today’s body positive warriors. Each one will tell you about their complex and relationship with the body, because everyone has one.
Here to tell that story today is Rae Tutera, LGBTQ clothier of Bindle and Keep, whose documentary Suited follows the story of individuals on the quest for suits uniquely matched to their identities. (See our story about Bindle and Keep’s fittings featuring an interview with Rae pictures of the clientele here.)
In this illuminating video, the reflective activist will tell you about closing the gap between who they want to be and the person they perform as, how retail workers insist on pushing their own ideas about gender onto shoppers, and the why masculinity in fashion sometimes gets all the love.
Watch below and after the video, #JointheRiot and tell us your body, your story.
