Change the world.
The Protest! Collection is the compilation of designs we have created to explain and denounce commonly accepted norms or falsehoods, either from the past or the present, that affect sexual diversity and LGBT rights. Religious frameworks first which then turned to legal, that have served as an environment and reinforcement of homophobia, whose brief trip began only a few millennia ago.
With the Protest! Collection, together with the elaboration of the gay and lesbian dictionaries and the articles of our blog, we intend to explain how the process that started from a sort of normalized homosexual behavior, changed to sin, then to crime, and next to disease. From pathology to achieving rights, and recently, in some lucky cases, to getting the social respect of “letting” people feel freely, have sex with whomever they like and marry the person they love. A global social change in which we want to help and in which we would like to involve you with our pride clothing.
With a Moscas de Colores design, not only are you wearing an original and funny LGBT shirt but you are also vindicating, telling the story behind each design and situation, explaining the past to understand the present. For this reason, they are not only pride clothing for the LGBT community, but these designs also claim for sexual freedom and human rights, issues that should matter to anyone.
Look Inside.With this collection of Drawings & Stories, we want to show the great components of human sexuality and how these are combined in different ways giving rise to the sexual diversity that we see. The design of these pride clothing is based on the Russian matrioskas, where each layer shows related but different and interchangeable aspects. Sexuality, transgender, cisgender are some of the designs of this collection.
Stonewall Inn, the origin of LGBT Pride.Every year, with the celebration of LGBT pride, voices rise up against an event that is considered unnecessary and frivolous. With this pride clothing, focused on the lighted sign of that pub, we want to talk about that origin of the past, that continues today being the beginning in many countries of the world.
Finocchio (Italy).Italy could seem a bastion of heterosexuality for its homophobia, Oh, the Italian macho! However, it is quite the opposite since Italy was the western cradle of “faggness”. The Drawing & Story of this pride clothing is a fennel silhouette painted with the colors of the Italian flag, which curiously were the key colors for the cruising in the times without freedom.
Sochi 2014: The most gay & lesbian Olimpic Games in history.When the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympic Games were held, there was a lack of a strong rejection by the Olympic Committee of Russian homophobia, although it was not unexpected because the fruit never falls far from the tree. We, on the day of the inauguration, published this article and posted 4 freely distributed thumbnails for the profiles.
God hates figs.“God hates fags” is one of the slogans of the Westboro Baptist sect, which was answered with slogans as “God hates bags” “God hates cats” and “God hates figs”, inspired in a curious and embarrassing passage from the bible. For this pride clothing, we have created two Drawings & Stories with 3D effect, one with text in white color and the other with text in black.
Moscow 2112. Brief history of Russian homosexuality.When Moscow city banned the celebration of LGBT pride for 100 years, we came up with the image of the Moscow Pride 2112. With this pride clothing, you can also tell that the first Russian law against homosexuality was from 1716 to exclusively prohibit voluntary anal sex between men in the army. Yes, you read it right!
I Love Sodom.Did you know that until the 11th century a Sodomite was no more than an inhabitant of Sodom? And that the sodomy was any non-reproductive sexual behavior, then? With this pride clothing, we want to say that the word of god is really that of men and that in Sodom only occurred a geological catastrophe. I love Sodom. And you?
Paragraph 175 (Germany).The first political movement in favor of sexual diversity took place in Germany in the 1860s with the aim that the paragraph 175, which penalized sexual relations between men, was not included in the new penal code. With this pride clothing, we want to commemorate those beginnings and the birth of homosexuality.
