Sky Cubacub is a non-binary Filipinx human from Chicago, IL. Rebirth Garments is their line of wearables for the full spectrum of gender, size, and ability. They are also the editor of the Radical Visibility Zine, a magazine based off of their manifesto. Our identity is that of Queer and Disabled, encompassing queer, trans, gender nonconforming identities, apparent and non-apparent disabilities/ disorders—physical, mental, developmental, intellectual etc. In particular, our trans and disabled communities have very particular clothing needs that are not adequately served by mainstream clothing designers. Instead of being centered on cisgender, heterosexual, white, thin people, Rebirth Garments is centered on Queer and Disabled people.
Rebirth Garments challenges mainstream beauty standards that are sizest, ableist, and conform to the gender binary. Instead, we maintain the notion of Radical Visibility, a movement based on claiming our bodies and, through the use of bright colors, exuberant fabrics, and innovative designs, highlighting the parts of us that society typically shuns. Through Radical Visibility, we refuse to assimilate and can create a Queer and Disabled dress reform movement.
