SheWired Presents: The United States of Tomboy

The United States of Tomboy Features Lesbians from Across the Country

The United States of Tomboy Features Lesbians from Across the Country

Meet Tomboys from all around the country.

Hey Tomboys!

Introducing SheWired's United States of Tomboy! This blog post came from one simple Instagram comment on the photo below. Here's the post (that's me in Downtown, Los Angeles; Hello!):

And here is the comment that got this ball rolling from @wsmeier25: "California style so different than here in the heartland! ;-)"

So that got me thinking! How does style change depending on where you live? Many times I have been on the road for a comedy gig, donning my not so uncommon Los Angeles drop-crotch pants, and I get the, "You're not from around here are ya?" Someone even asked me that once at the airport. The airport!? So much of where we call home reflects how we are shaped is molded into our style.

Furthermore, what even constitutes "Tomboy" seems to have its range.

So what is Tomboy? How do we differ and how are we the same? The purpose of this post is to introduce ourselves to ourselves. From the heartland of the Midwest to the stop-and-go traffic of Los Angeles, from the beauty of Washington State to the ummmmm of Florida State. (Kidding! I grew up in FL. GO GATORS!)

Tomboys roll up our sleeves in all shapes and sizes, all walks of life, all ages and ethnicities. This slideshow provides what I think is just the beginning of some really fascinating insight. Flip through the first round of OG (original gangsta) Tomboys who have stepped up to rep their hometowns. States that participated are listed in close to alphabetical order. Presenting, the United States of Tomboy.

(BY THE WAY AND THE MOST IMPORTANTEST NOTE EVER: this is a rolling casting call. We want you to particpate and be a part of this project. Flip to the final page of the slide-show to see how you can have a chance to be featured on SheWired and involved in reppin' your hometown).

Without further ado! LET THE SLIDE SHOW BEGIN! ALABAMA is on the next page! 



Meet Jessy G. of Birmingham.

Hey America! I'm Jessy G. and I hail from Birmingham, Alabama. I am the barn manager for a jumper/dressage riding academy just south of the city. I am passionate about solving life's mysteries, but even more so, caring for and easing the load of those who cross my path. Currently I am planning my next tattoo. The one item I can't live without in my closet is my spirit horse necklace because it's a reminder to hone strength and journey forward with grace and freedom.

PS Jessy, Lianna here - Thanks for participating! Alabama Football Sux (rib-jab)




Meet Sinclaire Sexsmith from Southeast Alaska

Photo Credit: Meg Allen,

I'm Sinclair Sexsmith, and I grew up in the lush temperate rainforests of Southeast Alaska. I am a writer and own a microbusiness supporting people with their explorations of sexualities, genders, and relationships through workshops, courses, and coaching ( I'm currently teaching an online course about power dynamics, Submissive Playground, for the summer, and gearing up to travel around to colleges and do guest lectures about all things queer this fall. The most important thing about my style is a really really good haircut: it makes me feel a thousand times sexier and more confident. It also helps to have a really great pair of shoes or boots. Top to bottom, I like the dapper details of masculinity, and I appreciate and value the work it sometimes takes to reconcile that with my female body.

Meet Dee Mullins of Scottsdale, Arizona
Hey America, I'm Dee Mullins and I hail from Scottsdale, Arizona. I am a Senior Enrollment Advisor for Confordia University based out of Portland. Basically I help others towards their goals which is always rewarding. My passion is for music and traveling as it's always good to get out of the AZ heat and explore new things whether in a new state or country. When it comes to music, I love all different genres. I've attended the Coachella Music Festival for the last 12 years and will continue to until I physically can't. In home life I am currently helping my sister with the new experience of motherhood with not one, but two babies! Yep, twins and it's tough work! The one item in my closet I can't live without is a nice pair of worked in vans because they just feel like a piece of me after all these years. I've had some of them through many different times in my life and they hold many memories.
Meet Zen C. of Phoenix, Arizona
Hey America! My name is Zen and I hail from the fevered desert of Phoenix AZ. I am the Creative Project Manager for a successful design agency called Mousse Creative Studios and love every working moment with our crew. My passion is helping others volumize their ideas and create brand identities beyond the scope of even their OWN vision. I live with abundance and believe in passing love, laughter and light through me onto others as much as possible. 
If there were one item in my closet I couldn’t live without, it would be my insane collection of neckties. When you work in a professional/ design driven industry that demands (even subconsciously) a powerful and fashionable appearance… 
A good tie = your apparel power source.

Meet Anne Haley of Little Rock, Arkansas

Greetings! I'm Anne Haley and I am proud to call the great state of Arkansas my home. I am a political strategist/community organizer/graphic designer and I am about to start graduate school to get my Masters in Public Service. My passion is LGBTQ advocacy and gender issues and I believe we must engage and transform our social, cultural, economic and political systems in order to ensure equity, eliminate injustice and effect positive social change. I am also currently on the board of a local non-profit working to create transitional living programs for LGBTQ homeless young adults. The one item in my closet I can't live without is my collection of blazers because I MEAN BUSINESS!



Meet "Queens & Cowboys" Star, Char Duran


Thank you SheWired for your support of Lianna's project - United States of Tomboy. It is an honor to represent my home state of Colorado. I'm Char Duran and I reside just north/east of the Mile High City - Denver Colorado but my heart and love lives in Leadville Colorado which is where I spend most of my free time. Leadville was once a thriving wild west mining town with over 30 thousand people including Doc Holiday, Texas Jack and the Unsinkable Molly Brown, but now has settled down into a small mountain community that is 10,152ft above sea level, so you can imagine the views! Currently I am a Fleet Maintenance Manager for a major rental car company, but my real life and passion is rodeo. I compete competitively on the International Gay Rodeo Circuit (IGRA) as well as Traditional (Straight) circuits. My horse (Snowball) and I are retired barrel racers and I now compete in Bull Riding and Chute Dogging (Steer Wrestling). Why Bull Riding? Well, because I suck at golf and I throw like a girl! Hahaha But all kidding aside, I am a thrill seeker and my beautiful state offers plenty of activities I love like hiking, rock climbing, kayaking and rafting but there is no thrill in the world like an 8 second ride! What other sport can make you appreciate your life one second at a time? I know most people think of Texas when they hear Cowboy or Cowgirl, but the western spirit is alive and well in Colorado. I bet you didn't know the very first Rodeo was held in just east of Denver in Deer Trail Colorado? Well it would be obvious to say that the one item in my closet I can't live without would be my boots or cowboy hat, but if I had to choose it would most likely be a hat. I usually have something covering my noggin like a ball cap, my summer straw or my dress felt cowboy hat. The only time my head isn't covered is if the occasion requires or a fresh haircut. You can discover more about me and my IGRA Rodeo Family in Matt Livadary's award winning documentary Queens and Cowboys. To learn about the film and know where it is playing please visit for details. Also, to help sponsor a Bull Rider (like me) or learn more about the sport please visit Oh yeah you can like 'em on Facebook too! :-)
May all your dreams come true 8 seconds at a time!

The two fashion items I couldn't live without are my bow ties (seriously, every occasion is an opportunity to rock a bow tie...even the beach) and good hair product -- American Crew, here's lookin' at you.

(And, if I might add, my fashion icon is Molly McGinnis of Louisiana. On top of being an fabulous Tomboy, she is an incredible person!)



Meet Joan Hepsworth



Not all tomboy's are 22. I was a tomboy when girls were still required to wear dresses to school circa 1970.  My only savior was that it was Ohio.  Mom let me wear pants under my dress in the winter.  I left the pants on and ditched the dress when I got to school. I let my mother dress me for my sister's wedding when I was 21. It was what I considered my mom's last hurrah to dress me as a girl.  As you can see she forgot to give me walking lessons. I am now 49.  I'm still just as much as a tomboy as I ever was. Appropriately named Joan. Thank goodness I haven't been burned at the stake yet! Sincerely,  Joan Hepsworth


Meet Destiny Ramos of Atlanta, Georgia

Hey America, I'm Destiny Ramos and I hail from Atlanta, GA. My passion is poetry and music, mostly because of the emotion and power both can have on an individual.

Basically I'm just here to enjoy this specific chapter in my life's book. The items in my closet I can't live without are my button downs because I simply love them!

Meet Katie Duckett of Norfolk, VA
Hey, Tomboy Nation! My name's Katie and I'm holding down the androgyny fort here in Norfolk, VA. I'm a Communications Consultant by profession, so naturally I just ooze style (said absolutely no one who's ever laid eyes on me). I'm actually pretty out of touch with fashion trends; I'm a lifetime member of the Shorts and Hoodie Club, and I own a pair of flip flops that my fashion-conscious girlfriend has threatened to leave me over. In professional settings and for occasions that call for a little more spiff, I'll break out a blazer or a cardigan with a bow-tie for a Mr.-Rogers-meets-Carlton-Banks-for-brunch ensemble (I'm also a sucker for a sharp sweater vest - I have the Brooks Brothers Boys' Collection webpage bookmarked). Whatevs tho, you guys! Comfort and confidence can make anything sexy - even a sweater vest. At least that's what I fully intend to keep telling myself. At the moment my wardrobe favorite is a wooden wristwatch by a company called Earth. It's uniquely elegant, a major conversation piece AND it tells time. I dig it.
Meet Giulia of Green Bay, WI
Hey America, I'm Giulia and I'm from Green Bay, WI. I work in finance but my real passion is doing any outdoor activity - such as hiking, surfing, sailing, wake boarding, paddle boarding or deep sea fishing.  I also am currently involved in a great non-profit, CoachArt, which pairs volunteers and children with chronic illness and provides the children with free arts and athletic lessons.  The one item in my closet I can't live without would be my Sperry Topsiders since they make me feel like I'm on vacation every time I wear them.

Meet Sarah Gillies-Alvarez from Hoquiam, WA
How's it going, America? I'm Sarah Gillies-Alvarez from Hoquiam, WA. I work in a college media center and I'm a total tech geek. I'm also a part of a newly-founded nonprofit called Out & Proud Grays Harbor Coalition and we are working hard to bring LGBTQ awareness and resources to our rural community. We are planning the first-ever pride festival in our small town this August with a drag show to follow, and I can't wait! I am a hardcore Seattle sports fan, an average songwriter, and a mediocre ukulele player. The one item in my closet I can't live without is my houndstooth scarf that I "borrowed" from my dad. I never leave the house without my prescription aviators and when it comes down to my signature style, I like to include a touch of green as an homage to "The Evergreen State."
Meet Aimee of Washington, DC
Hola America! I'm Aimee and I live in Washington,  DC. By day I'm a Communications Administrator for a charter school that works with immigrant families. I'm also the president of the LGBT band organization, DC's Different Drummers ( I am in love with my day job, but music is my greatest passion. I play 7 instruments and write and arrange music with my brother. I think music is one of the greatest ways to share my heart. The one item in my closet I can't live without is a cardigan sweater. I love to layer, so whether it's a V-neck in the summer or a tie or bow-tie in the winter, I try to always have a cardigan at the ready to pair with my favorite outfits.


Meet Kris from Toronto

Dear America: I'm Kris and I am Canadian. I hail from the big city of Toronto, found in Ontario, should you ever decide to visit our amazing country.

I also am a vegetarian, and no I don't eat bacon, fish or chicken just in case you were about to ask. The one item in my closet I can't live without is my oversized tanks, because in Canada, layers are key...and allow for fashion crossover between all the seasons.


SheWired's United States of Tomboy is a rolling casting call. We have yet to fill all 50 states but would love to! If your state isn't yet repp'd (and even if it already is) and you'd like to hop on as a representative for the United States of Tomboy, email for information on how to get involved. We also recognize that Tomboys can vary from city spaces to rural places, too. That Tomboy can vary within a spectrum of a spectrum of expression as well. So if you don't see yourself reflected in someone here from your state, and identify as a tomboy, send in a submission request! We want you!
