Carlos Jáuregui

An Argentinian man who, while ambitious and accomplished, did not get the time to build the life he deserved left a legacy that will span out farther than he could have imagined. (Read Full Article)

❤ ORDERS ARE OPEN ❤

The Stonewall Liberators shirts are now available, with proceeds from each shirt going to benefit The Sylvia Rivera Law Center and Miss Major Griffin-Gracy’s TGI Justice Project.

These shirts exist to pay forward the legacies of these four activists who came up out of the Stonewall Riots and dedicated their lives to promoting the health and safety of the most marginalized members of the queer community. Each shirt comes with an information postcard about these trailblazers’ lives and work, so that you can be prepared to share their stories through the oral tradition.

These are conversation starters, ethically sourced new duds for your closet, and a way to support trans people (and specifically trans women of color) when we as a community need it the most.
