Queer Youth ‘Slay The Runway’ in Fashion Workshop Catered to LGBTQ+ Teens

Author: Dylan Reber

A fashion workshop held at the University of Colorado Boulder gave queer teens the opportunity to learn, design, and ultimately strut the runway in outfits of their own making.

Workshop organizer Steven Frost noted that initiatives like Slay The Runway are particularly important in the face of anti-LGBTQ+ violence like the Club Q shooting and the flood of legislation targeting queer youth.

“There’s so many weird ways in which people try to control us all,” Frost shared, “and we want just this to be a place where everyone has freedom, where everybody’s allowed to express who they are.”

The Slay The Runway fashion show took place Friday, June 23 at Boulder Public Library’s Canyon Theater, concluding the workshop. Participants were able to take their outfits home with them at the end of the night.
