Tyler, The Creator followed in the footsteps of Kanye West last night when he presented his first fashion show in Los Angeles as part of an event organized by MADE, which explores the intersection between style and music.
Tyler, who is known for his colorful style, offbeat sense of humor, and razor sharp lyrics, made his debut as fashion designer with his line Golf Wang in Los Angeles Last Saturday. “You shouldn’t expect anything because then you’ll be disappointed,” However, expectations ran pretty high among the legions of fans waiting in line for the doors to open. “Tyler is going to walk down the runway with an alligator,” said one. “I heard it’s going to be a cheetah,” countered another. “I’m sure it’s going to be an experience,” said singer Janelle Monáe from an eclectic front row that included former Disney stars Dylan and Cole Sprouse, hip hop artist YG, and model Kendall Jenner. “I’m looking forward to it.”

Each Halloween radical evangelical groups build hell houses. These performer-animated installations showcase a gruesome retribution for the sins of fornication, abortion, suicide, occultism, and—of course—same-sex relationships. This Halloween, Toronto based-artists Deirdre Logue and Allyson Mitchell reclaim this hellish scenario with their sex positive, trans inclusive, queer lesbian-feminist-fear-fighting celebration. Organized by ONE Archives in West Hollywood, KillJoy’s Kastle: A Lesbian Feminist Haunted House is designed to pervert, not convert. This haunted house of freaky feminist skill sharing and paranormal consciousness-raising reanimates the archive of lesbian herstory with all its wonders and thorny complications. Expect horror. Dare to be scared by gender-queer apparitions, ball-busting butches, and never-married, happy-as-hell spinsters. Get down on riot ghouls and radical vampiric grannies while channeling your inner consciousness hell-raiser. Each evening of nightmarishly non-assimilated lesbian mayhem will include multiple live performances from a spirited group of international and local weirdos.
