Genderless Deities: Worship at the Altar of You!

When Sam came to us with the idea of doing a gender optional shoot based on the wildly popular Tuesday night live sales, we were thrilled. Sam took their vision and chose a studio, cast models and pulled all the looks for this shoot. Sam's own personal story of gender-affirming and identity-affirming fashion is so fascinating, rich and complex and we hope to get to work with them more in the future. They brought their expertise in make up and drag to this photo shoot, and helped cast an array of beautiful models that captured the essence of the gender spectrum as well as expanded our universe at The Plus Bus into new horizons of inclusivity and community building that is so important to our team.
We asked the models for a reflection from the shoot which was captured in June, which you can read under their gorgeous photos.  Whether you’re solidly in your gender expression, or just exploring, The Plus Bus is a great way to tap into your genderless deity, as an archetype that you can use to empower your personal style. Having the ability to try on, not only trends and beautiful fabrics, but also trying on gender as an identity expression is a powerful way to explore your own personal journey towards gender euphoria. 

Marcy, Jen and all The Plus Bus team welcomes you to explore this beautiful world we’ve created to affirm how you feel inside and let you know that beauty and iconic fashion has no gender no size and no limit to its expressiveness and freedom! Be you-dress the skin you’re in and show the world your perspective-we’re waiting to cheer you on!

Genderless Deities Produced and styled by Sam Fagel  ♥ Photography by Cassia DeMayo

Models: @thriftcitytexas ♥ @noaxeon ♥ @nanciferian ♥ @florafreed ♥ @barrette_ ♥ @antiacolonial@faygella

Starring: Pri or @thriftcitytexas "One word that really stuck with me the whole shoot was individually standing for yourself and not folding into what someone else finds is the “norm. Just beauty melting into one big heavenly body."
Starring: Kivanne or @antiacolonial "It’s a rare space in my life where I can embrace my fatness and be seen as beautiful right now as I am; to have no shame for being in the body I live in; to walk in divinity." 
Starring: Noa (on IG @noaxeon ) "A lot of 'pride' shoots often focus on the struggles our community faces, but this shoot was purely about fat queer excellence and beauty!"
Starring: Flora @florafreed "Being fat and queer at the same time can mean I receive a lot of criticism for a lot of reason. Celebrating both of those things, with other lovely people was so nice!!"
Starring: Sam the non-binary style icon found online as @faygella "This photoshoot was a dream come true. I love challenging the norm and breaking the binary of gender and bigger bodies. The imagery is queer fat joy and liberation at its heart and soul, and I’m so grateful to Plus Bus for helping us showcase it."
Starring: Barrette @barrette_ "I felt lucky to work with such beautiful and inspiring people. I truly felt like a goddess.
"Starring: Nancy @nanciferian "It felt amazing to be a part of a project that centered a diverse group of queer, plus-size bodies. It truly represented the idea that fashion knows no gender. Fashion is used to have fun and feel beautiful, no matter your expression. I think those ideas were portrayed beautifully on this shoot."
