We can not thank the participants, vendors, and organizers of TBRU24 enough. This is our third Texas Bear Round-Up and every year we have such an amazing time. We have to give a special shout out to the Dallas Bears for putting on such an amazing event.

Introducing: Artist Collaborations

EROS Artist T shirt | Hand-Painted T Shirt | Long Sleeve T shirt | Unique T Shirt | Limited Edition T Shirt

Proud to introduce a new line of Tees called our Artist Collaborations. Similar to our Artist Edition tees that we auction off for the TRUE COLORS FUND each year, these tees will donate back to charity, but will be produced in a larger (yet limited) quantity.  These tees will take a graphic element and combine them with the vision of the selected artist to create wearable art.

Our first venture is with Dallas Artist Ven. Monkey & The Bee has taken a piece of one of his paintings and had it screen printed onto a long sleeve white tee. The print wraps around the neck collar to the back as well as from the front side to the back. What truly makes these t-shirts unique, is after the screen printing process, Ven hand-painted in a similar style to the original painting on each of the shirts. Each one of these shirts is a real piece of wearable art and a collaboration between Monkey & The Bee and Ven.

25% of the proceeds from the sale of each of this shirt design will be donated directly to the Youth First Program at the Dallas Resource Center.

Art saved my life. I was lucky to have found something to get me through my childhood.  Knowing the statistics, not everyone in our community is as luck as I was. I want to make sure programs like this continue to thrive, supporting our LGBTQ youth as they face the battles that we know intimately. Youth First is actively giving LGBTQ youth the tools to not only survive into adulthood, but live quality lives as adolescents by providing safe spaces to be themselves.  It is only by donations that they are able to fulfill their purpose. – Ven

The only thing we like better than a graphic tee i…

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?
