On June 12th, America woke up to dreadful news. Like many events in the past, we all will remember where we were when we got word of the devastating shooting at the Pulse Orlando nightclub. While the event could have easily postponed Pride events across the country, members of the LGBTQ community have made their message loud and clear: love is love and love always wins. The following t-shirts are perfect for those who will be attending Pride events, or those who just want to show their love and support for the cause.
1. For the sarcastic supporter.
Many of us have heard the religious argument, “God created Adam and Eve, not Adam and Steve.” This shirt is ideal for those who chose to not rely solely on religious text to form personal opinions or beliefs.
2. For the Anti-Trump supporter.
3. For the San Francisco native.
San Francisco has been a beacon in the fight for gay rights. It is home to the first Lesbian-rights organization, and Pride events have been held in San Francisco since 1972. This shirt is great for those who proudly call the city home and those who just love visiting!
4. For the blunt supporter.
This shirt’s message is simple and very matter-of-fact. It’s also the perfect counter argument to the classic saying, “marriage is between a man and woman.”
5. For the Clinton supporter.
With this being an election year, it’s the perfect time to show your support for the LGBTQ community and your favorite candidate. This quote is simple, yet powerful, and perfectly illustrates what many members and allies of the community believe.
6. For the ally.
While many Americans may not identify as bisexual, gay, lesbian, or transgender there are still ways to show your support for the cause. This shirt is great for those who want to march alongside their LGBTQ friends.
7. For the athlete.
This shirt would make the perfect gift for those LGBTQ community members who are also athletes. Plus, who doesn’t love unicorns?
8. For the Disney Fan.
We all love to wear shirts displaying our favorite films or characters. This shirt would make the perfect gift for the Disney-lovin’ LGTBQ supporter. It’s also a nod to the company, who has often proudly shown their support for the cause with their annual Gay Days at the Walt Disney parks.
9. For the Floridian.
Much like the San Francisco shirt featured previously, this shirt honors the memory of those killed in the horrific Orlando attack and also serves as a great gift for Orlando natives, LGBTQ supporters and allies, as well as those who enjoy visiting the iconic vacation spot.
10. For the Comic book nerd.
Is Superman a member of the LGBTQ community? Well, according to the comic books he is not. But, I think all comic book fans can agree that the Man of Steel would be an ally. This shirt is also a wonderful treat for comic book nerds who don’t want to hide their nerdy-ness during Pride events.
