THE HAZELL DEAN ALWAYS COLLECTION
(100% of profits go to Trans Radio)
The LGBTQ+ community has long been my tribe.
It’s been a relationship that started way back in 1983, with the release of my first single Searchin’. I must have sung it in every gay club across the UK, Europe, and then America.
The gay audience were the first to respond and embrace both the song and me as an artist. We have been together ever since. Over the last 38 years I have seen a lot and I have stayed with my tribe, always.
Through the dark despair of AIDS and Section 28 and out into the rainbow sunshine, yet what I am witnessing now is as dark as the darkest days of the early 80’s and it is our Trans sisters and brothers who are being vilified and victimised.
This is why it is so important for me to take this opportunity to stand proudly as an ally to the Trans community here and now, when they need it most. That is what a tribe does. We stand up for injustice and we do not exclude our own, and that means we do not turn against our Trans family. We protect them.
We stand together - Always.
I am collaborating with The LGBTQ+ Shop with an “Always” range, incorporating my signature to symbolise the importance of sharing the very simple message, that we stand together - always. 100% of the profits from this range go to support the wonderful work carried out by Trans Radio, you can find out more about them and listen live by clicking here.
The LGBTQ+ Shop care, and like me feel very strongly that we need to be very visible allies, and to help raise funds for organisations and charities that support and protect our tribe when they need it.
We do not discriminate. We do not exclude.
It’s very important for me to be associated with people who want to do the right thing, and who want to make a change………. turning it into love one T-shirt at a time……with The LGBTQ+ Shop.
Always, Hazell xxx
