At its heart, fabulousness offers a kind of poetry, a poetics of how people throughout the diaspora create and recreate themselves everyday in the peculiar state of emergency that is living while black, brown, queer and trans. Instead of being bogged down by the stresses of living while black, fabulousness transforms that duress into unimpeachable aesthetic genius. Building on this year's theme of black creative expression as intense, urgent and in Freefall, MADISON MOORE (Assistant Professor of Gender, Sexuality and Women’s studies at Virginia Commonwealth University) explores how style is a political intervention that uses creativity to imagine a thrilling elsewhere.
