12 extremely unapologetic LGBT t-shirts that defiantly and loudly scream ‘gay rights’ at haters
One of the best ways to express your identity is through your clothes, especially for LGBT+ people, and slogan tees are pretty much ideal for that purpose.
Let’s face it, there’s no better way to be loud and proud about being LGBT+ than with a rainbow covered, in-your-face, graphic printed t-shirt. And the good news is, there are plenty of them out there, with quotes from, “love is love” to “gay AF” and “sounds gay I’m in” to simply just “queer“.
If you think your wardrobe is missing an unapologetic slogan tee that reps being LGBT+ then don’t worry because we’ve got you covered.
To help you find the chest covering that suits you and your identity best, we’ve compiled a list of some of the amazing slogan tees you can wear loudly and proudly.
1. “The world has bigger problems…”
This simple slogan tee which says, “the world has bigger problems than boys who kiss boys and girls who kiss girls” is in a similar style to Frank Ocean’s Internet-breaking tee “why be racist, sexist, homophobic or transphobic when you could just be quiet” that he wore during a festival set a couple of years back. It’s a powerful statement in a simple style that’s available from Etsy here for £14 and you can choose from a selection of colours.
2. “Kiss whoever the f**k you want”
This t-shirt says “kiss whoever the f**k you want” alongside a giant gay Pride flag, so it doesn’t really get more unapologetically queer than that. If you want to wear this top with pride then it’s priced at £13 and you can get it from this Etsy store here.
3. Bee Proud
This “Bee Proud” is a little more subtle but features a cute bee design that comes in a number of different Pride colours. You can choose from the lesbian, pansexual, trans, asexual, bisexual and gay flag themed bee that’ll be a badge of honour you can showcase on your t-shirt. It’s priced at £10.95 and is available from Etsy here.
4. Human Beings t-shirt
This t-shirt plays with the labels we see on clothing and the labels we rep in real life. It says “Human Beings, 100% organic, colors may vary” in a design that features different skin tones and rainbow colours. It’s priced at £7.20 and is available in a number of different colours from Etsy here.
5. “Sounds gay I’m in”
Another quote t-shirt is this one which simply says “sounds gay I’m in”, a mantra for all LGBT+ people to rep proudly on their clothing. It’s priced at £13 and is available in different colours from Etsy here.
6. Love is Love t-shirt
This “Love is Love” t-shirt comes in a retro style design with rainbow font. It’s perfect to wear for a Pride event or every day if you want to loudly and proudly show everyone that love is love. It’s available in white, pink, black, blue and more for £18.75 from Etsy here.
7. Queer space
This t-shirt is a fun spin on the classic NASA design which was everywhere a few years back. Instead of NASA though this one says “Queer” and is perfect for any LGBT+ space or sci-fi geeks. You can get it in white, black or grey and it’s available from Etsy here.
You can also get the NASA t-shirt in the trans flag colours, which is a popular choice among customers. This one is available here.
8. “Trans rights are human rights”
This slogan is important and simple, “Trans rights are human rights” in a bold and capitalised font. It’s perfect for trans people and allies to rep proudly and unapologetically until everyone gets the message. It’s available from Etsy here and is priced from £12.
9. Gay AF t-shirt
This LGBT+ slogan tee reads “Gay AF” against the backdrop of the rainbow flag, it doesn’t really get more blunt than that, so if you want to proudly tell everyone you’re gay AF then this t-shirt is ideal. It’s priced from £11 and you can get it in a choice of different colours from Etsy here.
10. Rainbow sheep t-shirt
You can rep proudly that you’re the rainbow sheep of the family with this fun LGBT+ slogan tee. It features a cartoon sheep in Pride colours and is perfect if you want to show off that you’re the LGBT+ member of the fam, a.k.a. the gay cousin. It’s priced at £8.95 and you can get it from Etsy here.
