About the Strong Athletic Queer Flowy Muscle Tank
We created this design as one of the first that we crated at Strong Athletic after we received requests from the queer community to have a design that was not gender specific. Nadia Kean, the owner of Strong Athletic, is part of the LGBTQIA+ community and wanted to wear words across her chest that expressed that she was out and proud of it. Although being able to be open about who you are is a human right, it's still a privilege that not every human has. That is why it is so important to be "out" if you're able to and show the world that you will not be closeted. LGBT+ athletes in sports need support now more than ever and that is what this shirt aims to do- amplify the voices of the LGBTQIA+ experience in sports and in the fitness world.
This tank is based on the original Strong Athletic Woman design created by Cristen Perks. The logo was created by Angel Ortega of Garzig Designs. This shirt is screen printed by hand in Austin, Texas by Amanda at the Artists Screen Printing Coop.
The words "Strong Athletic Queer" and the Strong Athletic logo are printed in orange on the front, the logo is also printed on the back.
$1 from the sale of every one of these tanks has been donated in advance to Pull For Pride, a non-profit that supports the LGBQIA Community, specifically LGBT+ youth.
The shirt is an Bella and Canvas. Here's what they say about their tank:
A feminine version of the muscle tank, this must-have style is designed with our exceptionally soft poly-viscose fabrication that softly drapes around curves. The modern elongated armholes and curved bottom hem make it perfect for layering. Offered in a variety of solid and marble colors and more fabrications for 2015. The sizing for this tank is based on the average body size of a cis woman.
Features: Sideseamed. Relaxed, drapey fit. Low cut armhole. Curved bottom hem.
