The Eurostar terminal has an advert encouraging people to become allies to the LGBTQIA community. This is apparently achieved by being a femme in designer clothes with bold eye makeup. Its unclear if being young, thing and white is also required or just very highly preferred.

@celesteh There's a little more to it than that, not even sure if the makeup is strictly necessary either. I personally believe makeup is genderless but I get that we have decades of precedent to try to overturn.


I'm sure I've heard rumours of masc people in the LGBTQIA community, but they might be less glamorous.

@celesteh It's unfortunate that masculine fashion has been made so boring in comparison to feminine fashion. With apologies to Cyndi Lauper, boys just want to have fun too...


Strongly agree. And while i admire masc makeup, I personally would get dysphoria in it unless it became very mainstream.

@celesteh as we all know. gay is when dramatic makeup.
