SUPPORT LGBT+ IN BRAZIL


Want to look stylish and also support an important movement?

Now you can wear your thoughts on your chest and stand up for what is right in this world.

We stumbled upon this statement from PAPER magazine that goes into much greater detail about the history behind this shirt. We just had to share it with you so you have the opportunity to stand with your loved ones in this fight against those who bring so much negativity into this world.

"The latest source of dismaying rollbacks in LGBTQ rights comes from Brazil, where conversion therapy was given new legitimacy. Last month a federal judge overturned a decision from 1999 that banned psychologists from offering programs and treatments to "cure" homosexuality, allowing conversion therapy to be practiced again. The shirt references the hashtag #curagay, which trended after the ruling as Brazilians discussed and despaired of the decision. Dorfman collaborated with illustrator Paul Tuller (who has also designed a shirt protesting LGBTQ persecution in Chechnya) after hearing about the ruling. "This idea that you can 'cure' homosexuality is appalling and simply not true," he notes in a statement. "There is no Cura Gay (gay cure), there's just Gay. Or not. Or however you identify, and nobody should have say over something so personal and inherent. I hope this shirt resonates with people and we're able to raise a shit ton of money for the GGB to resist this ruling.""
