Outspoken
The OUTspoken Collection collaborates with queer artists to create products that playfully subvert the words/slander/euphemisms that coalesce into an [often-false] identity for men who have sex with men.  In short, we undefine ourselves.
Our first product is a tank top created by Minneapolis-based artist, Joe Sinness, based on Faggot.  The illustration is his interpretation of the traditional meaning of the word juxtaposed with its modern, hate-filled connotation.  Sinness’s expresses multiple levels of meaning through the arrangement objects found in the word’s history and combines them with gay ephemera (flowers, sex toys, etc).  Also, it looks really bad ass.
Wear your tank if you have one, purchase one at www.outspokencollection.com , or buy one at the event!
