Radical Self Expression
"Radical self-expression arises from the unique gifts of the individual. No one other than the individual or a collaborating group can determine its content. It is offered as a gift to others. In this spirit, the giver should respect the rights and liberties of the recipient." - Burning Man's 10 Principles

When I first attended Burning Man in 2010 and saw men wearing fabulous flowing robes and lavish lady hats, I thought, I can be that too! Part of how I model alternative masculinity is by sharing my radical self-expression with the world at festivals and beyond. Below are some of my favorite looks and the festivals that inspired them.
