About the Design of the Strong Athletic Queer T-Shirt
We created the Strong Athletic Queer T-shirt for all of the proud, queer, athletes in the world. Strong Athletic is a proud member of both the LGBTQIA and Sports Community. Founder Nadia Kean wants to normalize queerness and have it be something that is one day no longer spoken about as if it were different or special. She doesn't want queers to be "othered", she doesn't want people to speculate about a person's queerness and she doesn't want queer athletes to feel like they need to hide in this world, especially on their sports teams. Until that day comes, Nadia and others will proudly wear the Strong Athletic Queer shirts, with those bold and important words across their chests, spreading the message that you can be Queer AND Strong AND Athletic.
The design of this shirt is based on the original Strong Athletic Woman design created by Cristen Perks. 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 white on the front of this t-shirt, the logo is also printed on the back.
About the T-Shirt Design
The Strong Athletic Queer T-shirt is printed on a Bella Canvas 3200 T-shirt. This t-shirt is meant to be less form-fitting. The sleeves go down to mid-upper arm. The shirts sizing is based on the average body size of a cis male. If you normally wear shirts that are called "men's shirts" or "all gender" shirts, then you'll find the sizing for this shirt to be similar to those sizes. If you wear shirts that are called "women's shirts" then you should consider choosing one size smaller than you normally wear.
