n anticipation of Pride 2018, we´ve decided to release a special t-shirt that revitalises the classic LGBTQ rainbow. Inspired by the Philadelphia More Color More Pride campaign, our rainbow brandishes additional stripes in black and brown. Though the community united under the original flag are meant to champion LGBTQ rights, homonormativity has also been grounds for its own kind of violence, prejudice and divisiveness. The widened spectrum of our rainbow hopes to bring into visibility a major LGBTQ blindspot: of those who often feel erased or underrepresented by mainstream Pride. This is in spirit of the Cockheart Family ethos, one built around genuine unity, solidarity, and celebration of diversity. We cannot only celebrate our freedom to love while knowing many of our queer siblings still must fight to live.
We’re not saying we shouldn’t celebrate (you know us better than that!), we just think that everyone should have the right to celebrate themselves without fearing discrimination or harassment. And so, we have decided to donate to Pxssy Palace’s taxi fund. 5 pounds of the tee you buy goes towards a taxi ride home after a Pxssy Palace party: because the reality is that QTIPOCs are more likely to be targets of hate crime. This is why intersectional initiatives like Pxssy Palace and their taxi fund are essential for many of us, at least until we manage to collectively create a society in which everyone can walk home safely.
