MAKING PICTURES presents us the TEEN VOGUE cover spread September 2020 with Munroe Bergdorf. TEEN VOGUE: “In light of a year of rebellion and revolution, this September Teen Vogue looked to The Masons to photograph their cover story featuring Munroe Bergdorf, a black trans women who trailblazes in redefining beauty, fashion, and culture. They wanted to spotlight the women who are at the heart of fashion but often left out of the conversation.”
“Yeah… It’s making sense of a lot of the things I was ashamed of and afraid of when I was a kid. Unearthing those things I’d really repressed for decades is a lot,” Munroe Bergdorf says about her debut book ‘Transitional’. “I’m writing about how we as queer people grew up without seeing our love reflected in the world around us. It’s a slog to write because I’m putting myself back into that headspace, all the way back to childhood.” The link to the whole story is here (Writer: Thora Siemsen).
