mustache under my nosering

'Mustache under my nose ring' is an attempt to create an inclusive-gender neutral community of fashion, design and beauty. The crux of this initiative is to break stereotypes about how beauty is defined and expectations are set for women and men. The absence of body hair for women (especially facial and arm pit hair) and the presence of the very same to be a man (mustache as a sign of manliness) are cultural boundaries that aim to constrict the idea of gender and beauty. Clothes and even skin tone and mannerisms are other artificial boundaries culturally and socially perpetrated and habituated as the norm. 'Mustache under my nose ring' is a movement to address the evolving form of feminine and masculine beauty and how it meets the eye of the beholder.
