Update: THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN Sell Gayest Shirt Ever To Offend Homophobes & For Charity
Update: Moments ago, the sale was updated and a new design was put up:
You can pick up the shirt for 24 hours here. The band released it with the following message…
“So after everything yesterday, the thing that still stuck out the most were the random comments we had to delete, and some we didn’t, of people who were somehow disappointed in our stance on gay marriage. Not many, but still, even one is shocking. So now, to violently weed those people out of our fanbase for good, we proudly give you the “gayest” shirt of all time by any band: a Pegasus, with a cock for a horn, ejaculating a giant rainbow, on a tie-dye…shit I mean rainbow soaked…tank top. For twenty four hours. Again, fifty percent of proceeds go to The Trevor Project. ”
Original story as follows…
As you're all well aware, same-sex marriage has finally been legalized in the United States! Metal musicians were pretty stoked about it, we're pretty stoked about it and every gay couple in the country I'm sure is psyched out of their minds. The Dillinger Escape Plan saw this as the perfect opportunity to print up a new t-shirt that not only celebrates the victory over inequality, but also to donate some money to a good cause.
The ruling on same-sex marriage the other day was a major step for the LGBTQ community, and for humanity in general, but there is still a lot of work to be done to both combat and help deal with discrimination and the horrible effects it has on people individually and collectively. FIFTY percent of the proceeds from this shirt will go to The Trevor Project, the national organization that leads in providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning young people between the ages of 13 and 24. Available for 24 hours. Printed ok athletic grey American Apparel tri-blend. www.merchlimited.com
