The only thing we like better than a graphic tee is ripping it off the hot guy wearing it.

But we also enjoy sporting them ourselves nearly every day as part of our “writer uniform.”

So we’re proud to introduce you to one of our favorite new gay-owned businesses, Monkey & The Bee. The Dallas-based company produces a variety of wearables with several pride-themed shirts and even a grrrrreat lineup exclusively for bears.

Older guys can show a little grey pride with the Silver Fox shirt, and we totally dig this Thirsty tank top. The offerings have expanded quite a bit since we first learned about the company, so we’re thrilled to see them continue to grow. (We love things that grow!)

They’ll definitely be a go-to resource for holiday gifts, too. Heck, we’ll probably even leave an XXL t-shirt with our milk and cookies for Santa on Christmas Eve.

Gotta take care of our number-one bear, right?

We’re famous (kinda)!

Instfamous … or at least we felt that way when the article came out. Want to know more about Monkey & The Bee … this is a great article that tells you more about what we are about and how we are involved with the lgbtq community in Dallas.

Monkey & The Bee hit the road and set up shop at RMC in Longview, Texas.

EAST TEXAS STYLE … 

Most recently, The Bee and Tommy & Glenn, hit the road to set up shop in Longview, Texas at RMC. This was our first venture outside the Big D and boy was it a great trip. We left Dallas on a Friday night a couple weeks ago, drove out to Longview, set up shop, and mingled with the crowd at RMC, then headed back home. It was a long night but well worth it! We had a great time meeting new people and of course selling some tees and tanks!

Everyone at RMC, from the owners, staff, and patrons of the bar were so very welcoming and supportive of Monkey & The Bee. We can’t wait to go back with new designs and styles!

Out and about! Of course, we have been setting up shop all over Dallas for the past couple of months. Some of the great businesses that have allowed us to set up shop include: The Round-Up Saloon & Dance Hall, S4 – The Rose Room @S4, and Cedar Springs Tap House.

This isn’t just monkey business

Money and The Bee T-shirt company stays rooted in community service

Michael Albee and Frank Martinez started their t-shirt company — Monkey and the Bee — after “we started freaking out about how to pay for our wedding,” the men explained.
Martinez suggested Albee, a graphic designer, put his art on a t-shirt. And, Albee said, “We decided to go for it, see if there’s an interest.”
