Some positive news out of my home state in terms of Macy’s Galleria celebrating Pride Month by hosting a fashion show inside the store yesterday from 6-8 PM CDT.
This wasn’t just any store fashion show. The participating models were all local Houston area trans people, and one of the show’s organizers and commentators was none other than Jessica Zyrie, who knows a few things about ripping runways.
She was joined in the commentator duties by wardrobe stylist Ashley Kahn as the models showed off in season fashion looks that were inspired by Pride month. The show also included a DJ spinning tunes, a photo booth, makeup tutorials and complementary swag.
Note to my critics. Hey it ain’t always about me. I’m a firm believer in there is room for everyone in this trans community to shine, and I practice what I preach.
I was good with the fact that I got to see the spotlight shined yesterday on our younger Houston area trans peeps . I also got to watch a positive event for our community in a month we sorely needed it.
Just wish the show had been a little longer, but the people in attendance who saw this first ever event won’t forget it along with the customers and employees who were in the store at the time it happened.
And hope it happens again next year.
