"Safe Sex is Hot Sex–a woman hands out safe sex literature during New York City’s annual Pride March circa 1992. The poster is now part of the Cooper Hewitt Design Museum’s (@cooperhewitt) collection, photographed by legendary Steven Meisel and designed by @helenesilverman in 1991," writes @h_e_r_s_t_o_r_y, who is taking over our Instagram account for the day in honor of our American Women: #Pride series.

@madinraylopez, who rejects the binary construct of the English language in favor of allowing individuals to elect their preferred gender pronoun (or PGP) personally uses they instead of he or she. Every week Lopez asks the young people @_project_q_ works with what PGP they prefer at the moment: “I ask everyone their pronoun, and they change as the days go by. It can be he today, and then they—and then her.” Tap the link in our bio to read more. Photographed by @drakeycake.

@madinraylopez says that @_project_q_ teaches us that “a haircut is more than a haircut.” It is a way of redefining yourself, and taking control of how you see yourself and how the world sees you. Tap the link in our bio to read more about the work ProjectQ is doing. Photographed by @drakeycake.

@_project_q_ is a Los Angeles–based nonprofit dedicated to using hair as a form of social justice. “While giving free haircuts to queer homeless youth does not solidify a home for them, it does give them the self-esteem they need to know they deserve a home,” reads the organization’s manifesto, which goes on to explain that “more and more people of all genders show up looking for the perfect ‘do’ ” as well as that “having self-esteem is what will help them maneuver the world with their head on their shoulders.” Over 700 young people have thus far benefited from this service.

What’s the real secret to beauty? “Fulfilling your fantasy, girl,” says @allaboutvalentina, formerly of RuPaul’s Drag Race. She shares the equal parts fierce and scrupulous makeup routine behind her otherworldly onstage visage in the link in our bio. (Warning: This is no 5-minute face.)

@hennynhoes's look, like her lyrics, comes from a take-no-prisoners perspective. The skin-flashing moments of female rappers before her, like Foxy Brown or Lil’ Kim, are not her style. Instead, she packs a masculine punch in her low-slung baggy jeans and loose tees, and the only thing she flashes are her grills. In honor of #Pride 2017, Vogue profiled women of all ages and definitions, coast-to-coast, who live their truth fearlessly and beautifully.

Jen Baquial (@el.jefe.de.sirens) was already riding motorcycles when she first moved to New York, but it was when she first heard about the Sirens, in 2010, that her life changed. "It was like, Oh, shit. There are gay women who ride motorcycles just like me. I found my family, man." The Sirens Women’s Motorcycle Club, the oldest and largest women’s motorcycle club in New York City, also has a socially conscious side hustle: delivering donated breast milk to hungry infants in need.

Although Fire Island’s gay communities have obtained near-mythological status in popular culture as playpens for muscled-up gay men, there is a less discussed yet no less thriving scene of LGBTQIA women drawn to the area’s intoxicating mix of rest and relaxation, remoteness and revelry.

"They want to outlaw our love. They say it should be forbidden, hidden, that it’s disgusting. They want to bend and break us from our nature. We won’t be bent, we won’t be broken. We will kiss, we will grope, we will explore, we will break hearts. We will be hired, we will revolutionize, we will be fired, we will get sick. We will dream of perfectly mundane fantasies and outlandish freakishness. These will be our dream castles; we will find solace there, because love lives there," iO Tillett Wright (@iolovesyou) writes.

So, what does it mean to be a “lesbian model?” Several of the hip, gorgeous lesbians shot by @cassblackbird for this portfolio are career models, employed to display clothes by wearing them. @_dilone (pictured here) and @heather_kemesky, for instance, are certified runway stars. Others display clothes by wearing them as a side effect of their glamorous day jobs—to wit, fashion designer Phoebe Dahl and Soko, a musician and actress. What links them, aside from their looks, is that they’re all members of the tribe of lesbian cool girls—“celesbians,” as Bird jokingly refers to them. A confident lesbian identity is intrinsic to the coolness.

Young M.A’s (@hennynhoes) first EP, released in April, is called Herstory, and it is her story, an entry point into her world as an artist, though M.A concedes that she isn’t the only “her” in the equation. “I’m a woman who likes women no matter how much you can’t stand it; there’s millions of us . . . you’re gonna see it,” she says. “But it’s not about what you represent, it’s about what you’re going through.” In honor of #Pride 2017, Vogue photographed women of all ages and definitions, coast-to-coast, who live their truth fearlessly and beautifully.

The lesbians we talked to on the Chicago Police Department all said they don’t worry as much about their identity as they might have in the past. "It’s not hard or difficult in the Chicago P.D.,” says Lydia Cruz. “There are quite a few of us, and I think nowadays, people just accept it. I came back from my wedding, and everyone was like, 'Hey, congratulations, Cruz!' " Of course, it’s not all beautiful. "It might be different on the job," says Ebony Ware (pictured here), another officer. "When you encounter people on the street, they may call you a dyke or something, but that’s just because you’re there establishing order."

"The most special part is when you get on the ferry and leave NYC behind and enter this gay utopia," says Kelly Rakowski, the force behind @h_e_r_s_t_o_r_y. "It’s like you’re completely tuned out." Indeed, Fire Island—a narrow 32-mile sliver of sand and sun off the southern coast of Long Island—is much more than a mere summer getaway. It’s a gay haven for hedonism, artistic expression, and female autonomy that feels protected from an increasingly uncertain world. "I don’t want to be at a ‘straight’ place," K8 Hardy, a conceptual artist, says. "I’m a pretty flamboyant person. For me, [on Fire Island] I feel comfortable. It’s okay to be glamorous there and outrageous and everything like that."

In Mendocino County, California, Carmen Goodyear and Laurie York, partners in farm and marriage, have for decades forged an existence removed from consumerism, rooted in communal living, and above all, situated close to nature. This farm and preserve is where they have raised goats, sheep, chickens, and bees; where they have grown a mammoth garden that supplies most of their food; where they have helped wage successful battles against offshore oil drilling, a nuclear power plant, and GMOs; where they have, after many years together, gotten legally married. Their stories are part of the evolving narrative of the feminist, lesbian back-to-the-land movement, first told through their seminal ’70s zine and more recently through a series of strikingly personal films.
