Tees for Equality: Wear Your Support for Gay Marriage on your Levi Tee
If you’re looking for a fun, stylish, and easy way to support marriage equality, the search ends with this shirt!
In search of a creative and super stylish way to support marriage equality? Look no further than these sleek, fitted Levi Strauss & Co. tees.
Guys and gals can choose from a just-married cowboy or cowgirl couple. Every shirt has the statement “Levi’s Proudly Supports HRC” emblazoned on the back.
Created here in the United States, the soft, cotton blend tops are available on the Human Rights Campaign’s (HRC) website. Or, if you’re in Provincetown, MA; San Francisco, CA; Washington, D.C., you can pick one up at the HRC store. You can check out the list of store times and locations here. The HRC is the largest advocacy organization for the lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) community in the U.S.
With an extensive size selection ranging from XS to 2X, almost anyone can make a statement to remember. Each shirt will retail for $35, with all of the proceeds used toward HRC’s fight for LGBT rights.
“Levi’s has always been a tremendous voice for equality,” HRC President Joe Solmonese explained in a press release. “From ensuring fairness in CA by rallying business opposition to Proposition 8, publicly supporting marriage equality in NY with specialty-designed storefront windows and scoring a 100% on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index, Levi’s has been a long-standing and ardent supporter of marriage equality.”
The HRC has a history of teaming up with renowned designers including Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Kenneth Cole, and Alex & Chloe. Nevertheless, we still have a long way to go before marriage for all couples is a reality across the nation. Though quite a few states are mulling over marriage equality legislation, 29 of them still have constitutional amendments banning same-sex marriage.
It’s time to stand up for equal rights –and this T-shirt is a great start!
