This year PRIDE48 took a leap and let TURNIP TEEZ try something new with bringing a new collection of merchandise to help all of the PRIDE48 family celebrate Pride for 2018.
This collection was designed with all of the Pride48 family in mind. Those that listen around the world, those that podcast from around the world and finally those that will be in New Orleans from 22 to 24 August 2018.
Even though, I am one of the suits and also the dude behind TURNIP TEEZ, I had to put up a good argument as to why I should be the one to take on this task.
I have put in a lot of hours, a few almost sleepless nights and had a few gin and tonics over the course of putting this together to bring to you.
This truly was a labour of love for me; more so because I will not be able to join you in New Orleans.
It is my hope that you will feel pride either in wearing these t-shirts or hoodies, sipping adult coffee out of your mug or using the tote bag to go shopping.
I want to wish you a safe and happy Pride48 Expo and thank you from the bottom of my bbbbeating heart, for letting me be part of your chosen family.
We wanted to take some inspiration from one of the t-shirts in our collection and bring it up into our PRIDE 2018 Collection. We are talking about our AS-IS t-shirt.
Inspired by the home furnishings giant that uses the same colours of Royal Blue and Yellow; we wanted to make a t-shirt to promote body positivity and give people an opportunity to show off their pride in who they are and what they look like.
We also thought we needed to bring this to our PRIDE 2018 Collection especially after seeing a sign that a gentleman was carrying in a Pride Parade; which said, “EVERY BODY IS A PRIDE BODY” and we thought that was really fucking awesome!
So we bring you our AS – IS t-shirt and THIS IS ME t-shirts in our Pride 2018 Collection.
Have yourself a happy and safe PRIDE Month and remember that PRIDE is everyday….
Pride season is here and it is time to look fabulous in our new PRIDE shirts for this year.
Not only will you look awesome in these new shirts…you will be helping out a good cause.
$2 from the sale of each of our PRIDE 2018 t-shirts will be donated to the efforts over at TURNIPSTYLE to raise money in the Pride and Remembrance Run.
Since we can’t anticipate all the different kinds of styles that people may want, we have launched this year’s collection in our popular sleeveless style. If you are looking for another cut or style, we are happy to accommodate you. If you are able to, we ask that you add a $2 donation to help us support TURNIPSTYLE even more.
