It was very important to us that this collection be produced ethically, so we are proud to say that we can guarantee these items are all vegan, cruelty-free and sweatshop-free. They’re also made using the finest organic fabrics and high-quality inks, ensuring products that will stand the test of time and wear.

The collection uses the famous pink triangle motif, our tagline Love Your Local Queer Press and Queer AF in a range of vibrant applications on tees, totes and pins.

As you can see from the stunning shoot by Babs Daly, we are proud to collaborate with gorgeous folx from our LGBTQ+ community to bring this apparel to life. Thanks to all those who volunteered their time to participate.

While we’ve been happily adding quality LGBTQ+ apparel to your wardrobes for some time, this will be the first time we’ve released some art prints and postcards too.

The prints and postcards feature a series called GCN Classic Covers celebrating stunning landmark covers from GCN magazine’s past. We’re teaming up with our gorge pals at Hen’s Teeth for printing so you know it’s going to be good!

Our Queer Utopia postcard series which resulted in beautiful artworks created especially for GCN by awesomely talented creative folk during our lockdown print run. Other postcard packs include the iconic Child of Drag series by Glamo shot by Babs Daly that was originally featured in 2021’s Pride edition.
