Our motto has always been Shape Your Way. Likewise, we always believed in the right everyone has to Shape their love. That’s exactly the spirit we had launching this no-profit initiative tied to this theme, with the goal to donate funds to Antinoo Arcigay Napoli, in particular to the Casa delle Culture e dell’Accoglienza delle persone LGBTQIA+.
The artwork chosen for this occasion is based on the flag known as the Progressive Pride Flag, by Daniel Quasar, a variation of the rainbow flag originally created in 1978 by Gilbert Baker. This flag was realized to comprehend, aside from the classic colors, the white-pink-light blue of the trans flag and the black-brown of the african american community.
The Progressive Pride Flag is actually one of the more seen and used flags during Pride and LGBTQIA+ events, because of its increased reach in terms of inclusivity. Brought on T-shirt, shapes and colors merge in an artwork so Blowhammer we actually asked ourselves why we didn’t come up with it earlier.
The proceeds from every single #ShapeYourLove T-shirt sold contributed directly to the Casa delle Culture e dell’Accoglienza delle persone LGBTQIA+. We’re talking about the first structure of its kind in the whole south of Italy, a place of shelter and protection for marginalized people, victims of violence or in condition of economic distress. This house is co-managed by Antinoo Arcigay Napoli: we wanted to work with them to have a direct approach to the situation, we wanted to hear about the importance of this place and this initiative from the people who deal with it everyday on the front line.
