What Is a Cottagecore Lesbian?

If you’re on social media platforms like TikTok, Tumblr and Pinterest, you’ve likely noticed the “cottagecore” trend that’s getting popular with queer women and femmes. All at once, everyone seems to want to quit their jobs and run off to upstate Vermont to pick apples, raise chickens, and live their best woman-loving-woman life.It’s caught on so much that the The New York Times published a feature about it in March 2020. “Take modern escapist fantasies like tiny homes, voluntary simplicity, forest bathing and screen-free childhoods, then place them inside a delicate, moss-filled terrarium, and the result will look a lot like cottagecore,” says writer Isabel Slone.
Here’s a quick primer on the cottagecore aesthetic, where it came from, and how it’s rooted in real-world issues like climate change, the global pandemic, and safe spaces for LGBTQ+ people.
