It’s that time of year again where we put on our fashion critic hats, flock to social media, and review the influx of celebrity fashion at the Met Gala. Sure, it’s not an easy job, but somebody has to do it. And that somebody is the Internet.

The Met Gala is an annual fundraiser for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, but it’s also a night of extravagant fashion. This year’s Met Gala theme is In America: An Anthology of Fashion/ “Gilded Glamour” and it’s sure to become a night of “who’s who” and “who are you wearing?”. Sometimes, the fashion slays:

And sometimes we are giving some less than stellar outcomes:

While this year’s Met Gala commences, here are some of our favorite LGBTQ+ folks adorned in some amazing looks, who we hope make an appearance tonight.
Hopefully the Bodies, Bodies, Bodies star will serve up looks, looks, looks

I mean, Lady Gaga’s 2019 Met Gala outfit wasn’t just some serious fashion, it was an entire performance! She did it for the applause, applause, applause.

We hope to Ms. Cox brings all the drama we need for this year’s theme:

We’re sure that star will shine bright at tonight’s Met Gala:
Of course we have plenty more LGBTQ+ folks we hope to see at tonight’s event. The list is long and will continue to grow, as more queer and trans folks make their Met Gala debuts. And though we may not be there, we are there in spirit, from the comfort of our homes scrolling through our social media feeds and harshly critiquing, nevertheless.
