Wen sees fashion as a form of queer community building and has participated in various queer masculine visibility projects, collaborating with photographers and fashion bloggers to experiment how style can be an accessible form of queer outreach. Her collaborative works have appeared on media platforms including BuzzFeed, Colorline, TimeOut, DapperQ, and Qwear.
Dapper Chicks of New York is a project that brings a community together through showing gender fluidity in men's fashion.
Hey Queer Photo Project is a photographic series on queer Asian fasion. While HQ starts with fashion, it is not the sole purpose of the project. What we hope to do is to build a queer community where queer Asians who are not traditionally masculine presenting or androgynous can feel confident in expressing their styles and individuality. The way we think about style is not how well one mimics a fashion icon or a particular trend, but how one express their characteristics freely and originally. We hope to change the stereotypical representations of queer Asian in the mainstream, or the lack thereof, through the project.
