Spotlight On The Diverse World Of Pin-Up and Vintage #2

At the start of the year, I said that I wanted to shed more light on diversity in the vintage subculture. You can read the first post in this series here.

Here are ten more wonderful examples of diversity – I’ve linked their IG accounts and added a short description.

Miss Mozzy Dee

As well as being a stunning pin-up and talented singer, Mozzy is campaigner for diversity and representation in the world of pin-up and vintage. Most recently, she has focused on the Miss Viva Las Vegas competition. She took time to bring pin-ups from diverse backgrounds to public attention, using social media as a platform.

Brought to my attention by the gorgeous Velvet Jones, The Cocoa Butter Club is a celebration of queer POC performers. It is a place that gives a voice to The Other in a creative space.

Creme Fatale

Creme Fatale in a drag queen from San Francisco. Though she doesn’t necessarily describe herself as pin-up or vintage, I get a lot of inspiration from her styling. Furthermore, she is open with her views on gender, drag and art.

Ashleeta is a burlesque dancer and pin-up model who is not afraid to speak her mind. She fights against racism, body-shaming, homophobia and so much more. A true blend of beauty and strength.

For my next post in this series, I’ll be looking at diversity in pin-up and vintage businesses. If you have any suggestions, please let me know.
