The Chosen Ones
Tyne O’Connell – The Matriarch
“She’s held your head while you cried and smiled when you’ve conquered. Mother for those who couldn’t call blood home.” Vogue
A family is meant to love you unconditionally, but what happens when they don’t? In Vogue Scandinavia April 2022 issue, Stockholm-based celebrity stylist Thomas McEntree pens a personal essay about finding a chosen family. The Matriarch in the accompanying photo shoot is none other than Tyne O’Connell.

Here’s a short extract from Thomas’s article:
RuPaul famously says, “As gay people, we get to choose our family.”For so many in the LGBTQIA+ community, our biological family – those who swore to love and protect us from the moment they brought us into this world – fail to fulfil that promise when they find out who we are. Being cast out from one’s homes a trauma that stays with you, and irrevocably changes who you are. For many of us, this trauma also sparks a search for a new, chosen family.
