Marimacho: Genderqueer Clothing

“marimacho: (n. Spanish) a girl who behaves in a boyish manner; tomboy”

Crystal González and Ivette Alé are the visionaries behind Brooklyn-based clothing line Marimacho. The genderqueer clothing line was created to solve the challenges of finding well-fitting, gender-appropriate clothing for masculine-of-center women and transgender men.

About Amy Stretten 4 Articles
I have wanted to be a broadcast journalist since I was in the 4th grade. The year was 1994 and I was 9 years old when I wrote an article about the 6.6 Northridge, California earthquake for a class assignment. I was selected to film a field report for a children’s news show that aired on a local public access channel in Los Angeles, California. I attended a public bi-lingual Spanish immersion elementary school. Though much of my schoolwork was done in Spanish, I wrote and read this news story in English. I felt so powerful holding a microphone, standing in front of a video camera, knowing others wanted to hear my story. My tribe, the Chickahominy tribe of Virginia has many stories to tell and I want to be one of our storytellers. I come from a very unique and multi-cultural background and have lived in a variety of places (Los Angeles, Orange County, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., Madrid and Seville, Spain, a little town called South Hadley in Massachusetts, and now New York City), so I feel I can identify with a wide range of people. I have traveled throughout Europe and North America and look forward to traveling to other countries I have yet to explore. I am currently a student at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism. I expect to graduate with a Master's degree in Journalism in December 2011. After earning my degree, I hope to work as a correspondent for a cable news network. To read some of my most recent work, check out my blog:
