We are suddenly living in a very different world and are making many accommodations to our daily lives to keep each other safe and our larger communities healthy. Yet, in June, and all year long, we celebrate Pride and champion our friends in the LGBTQ community.
The Pride Portraits Tank is printed on a women's dri-fit Nike tank. The portraits on this tank are of Marsha P. Johnson and Sylvia Rivera who are activist trans women remembered for their roles in the advancement of the gay rights movement. After their involvement in the Stonewall Riots in 1969, they continued to organize and particiapte in gay rights protests and worked to create organizations for the LGBTQ communities.
Proceeds of this tank benefit Casa Ruby, an organization started by Ruby Corado, that is run by transgender women of color and provides services and support to LGBTQ people in DC.
