29 states still have constitutional amendments prohibiting marriage for same-sex couples, and for same-sex couples that are legally married, the federal Defense of Marriage Act singles them for unequal treatment. The Human Rights Campaign - the nation’s largest (LGBT) lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization - is working to achieve marriage equality by supporting fair-minded leaders, mobilizing its members and raising awareness of the discriminatory nature of anti-LGBT amendments and laws.
They have once again partnered with Levi Strauss & Co. on an exclusive t-shirt collaboration featuring "Levi's Proudly Supports HRC" on the back and on the front, a design sketch of just-married cowboy & cowgirl couples. "Levi's has always been a tremendous voice for equality," says HRC President Joe Solmonese. "From ensuring fairness in CA by rallying business opposition to Proposition 8, publicly supporting marriage equality in NY with specialty-designed storefront windows and scoring a 100% on HRC’s Corporate Equality Index, Levi’s has been a long-standing and ardent supporter of marriage equality. We are grateful for their continued commitment to the LGBT civil rights movement."
Available in sizes XS to 2X at Shop.HRC.org. 100% of the net proceeds from the $35 retail price will go toward the HRC's fight for LGBT equality.
