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.

@skquinn

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...

@skquinn

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.
