The Story Behind the Strong Athletic Asian FLowy Muscle Tank
In the Fall of 2019, Shaolynn, skater for London Roller Derby and Team England Roller Derby, approached Strong Athletic about making a Strong Athletic Asian shirt. We were stoked to get the request and said, "yes!". Shaolynn is part of the group "Asian Derby Skaters".
This is what Shaolynn said about the request for the shirt:
"Being Asian comes with a heavy set of stereotypes. Submissive, petite, meek, exotic, fetishized, and often considered the “model minority”. But we don’t fit those stereotypes. We’re not here to be quiet and subservient. The community of Asian Derby Skaters want to stand up, be heard, and represent the strong athletes that we all are, in all our forms, redefining all the cultures we come from."
$1 from every shirt sold will be donated to Raging Asian Womxn Taiko Drummers, a Toronto Based Taiko Drumming Feminist Collective. Find out more about this group on Instagram: @rawtaiko
