TOGETHER WE STAND Men's Vest Top
The LGBTQ+ Shop is delighted to launch our Pride Ireland range for 2021. We may not physically be able to get together but that won’t stop us from doing all we can to help ensure equality for all members of the LGBTQ+ family across the globe. “Even apart, we’re together” is our slogan for what is going to be another unusual Pride season. Whilst parades have been cancelled or not yet confirmed internationally, through virtual events we can still be together to celebrate everything Pride means. From all of us, we wish you a safe Pride and look forward to when we can all properly get together.
Each year the team at The LGBTQ+ Shop will be choosing a signature design from our Pride range. It will be the design which is our favourite and the one which best represents the sentiment of that year.
This year our signature design is Together We Stand.
This has been an incredibly tough year for all of us in the LGBTQ+ community, and for the world in general. Last summer Pride events were cancelled across the globe, which meant the roar of voices fighting for equality were not heard, funds weren’t raised for charities dependant on them, LGBTQ+ owned businesses didn’t make it through the pandemic and homophobia, transphobia, racism and misogyny reached new levels in certain parts of the globe.
Rights have been eroded, misinformation spread, hate crimes are on the increase and members of our community are being attacked and murdered. Last year alone 350 trans people that we know of were murdered, and the true figure could be much higher.
All of the above may seem bleak but as a community we have torn down walls, achieved unimaginable levels of equality in certain countries, fought oppression and overcome bullies and aggressors.
It may seem idealistic to think we can get to a place of true equality for EVERYONE within our LGBTQ+ community, but there is only one way we will find out and that’s to try. And try together.
Who knows what we can achieve if Together We Stand?
Whilst many Pride t-shirts may be disposable and just made for one wear, we believe that high quality garments which can be used year after year are a much more environmentally friendly option. Plus the cotton used in this range feels great.
Stand out at Pride for all the right reasons with this design from The LGBTQ+ Shop. Have a happy and safe Pride.
