As you all know by now, Grindr is a dating app that has supplanted the gay bar and online dating sites as the best way for gay men to meet the right person, at the right time, in the right place. What you might not know is that Grindr also uses it’s presence to help gay Syrian refugees find safe houses, inform LGBTQ people about electoral issues that impact them, remove barriers to HIV testing, and more.
Now they’ve launched a clothing line where all proceeds will be going to the Athlete Ally Principle 6 campaign and we think that’s pretty rad. ‘The Varsity Collection’ consists of 29 pieces and was created in collaboration with Print All Over Me. The line includes jockstraps, mesh shirts, and a damn fine yellow jacket (to name just a few) and incorporates Ancient Greek motifs along with references to queer pop culture.
