 “The looks curated from the AGAIN preloved collection are an embodied reclamation of thrifting as anti-classist, forming part of queering as an action; it is down to our very exchange of energy (money, time, effort) that we are called to bring forth queerness in its mercurial motion of past, present and future paradigms. “When it comes to ableism and ageism, to [restructure] our thinking around these two things means that if you’re using queering as a verb through an older, disabled body – the process becomes exciting, it means you are part of moving identity forward. It becomes an invitation for authenticity and strength versus constructed social dynamics”, says Louise in our conversation.” Holly Beaton (Bubblegum Magazine)
