Summer is winding down, and it feels like it was no ordinary summer. Not only did we have heat waves and hurricanes, but we had the winds of change come blowing in when NYS became the sixth state to pass marriage equality. I was in the Capitol during the protests leading up to the vote and it was amazing to see so many people there cheering for marriage equality. There were people of all ages and races and backgrounds, including local artist Kristin Gallo (of Revel). Kristin was so inspired by the energy of change and equality she created a beautiful line of tees and tanks for men and women to commemorate this historic summer.

She says, “In the week leading up to the Marriage Equality vote, I spent a lot of time at the Capital, where the energy was overwhelming.  I admired the t-shirts people were wearing that challenged the status quo, and when it passed, I wanted one that celebrated this victory.  We still have a long way to go, but it’s a great time to be a New Yorker, it’s the Queer Summer of Love!” Kristin created the design and had the tees and tanks printed locally. They are available online at her website – www.RevelinArt.com

10% of profits will go to the Pride Center of the Capital Region.
