Radical Visibility: Sky Cubacub of Rebirth Garments

December 4 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Three people against gray wall. Sky Cubacub on the left wears pink and blue scalemaille headpiece, chainmaille crop top with shoulder and reflective clear/white scalemaille details and sleeveless bodysuit colorblocked with neon colors and black-and-white triangle pattern with handmade wrestling boots in silver and turquoise. Alice Wong of the Disability Visibility Project is sitting in power wheelchair in middle and has a knit pink hat, using a ventilator, and black-and-white zigzag leggings with the seams on the outside, hooded cape with teal and orange colorblocking. Nina Litoff on far right kneels down, wearing a black chainmaille chestpiece with a black sheer tank dress with a chevron piece over their chest and a black and silver holo skirt under. All three wear colorful makeup and look directly at the camera.

 

Sky Cubacub is a non-binary queer and disabled Filipinx human from Chicago, IL. Their clothing line, Rebirth Garments, challenges mainstream beauty standards through centering queer and disabled people of all sizes, ethnicities and ages. They maintain the notion of Radical Visibility,  a celebratory resistance, highlighting the parts of us that society typically shuns, a movement based on claiming our bodies; through the use of bright colors, exuberant fabrics and innovative designs, they refuse to assimilate and are spearheading a Queer and Disabled dress reform movement.
