Strong Athletic Trans T-shirt
This shirt was requested by members of the Strong Athletic Community, Alex Hauptman and Ejay Carter. We thought it was a design that other athletes might like to wear and so we decided to make it for the masses. This shirt for all of the Trans athletes in the world who contribute to sports and athletics. Trans athletes are often made to justify their place in sports and in the world in general. Trans athletes belong here, they belong in sports and they should not need to justify their existence to anyone. If you are a trans athlete, we see you and we believe that you have the human right to exist and to compete in which ever sport you choose without explaining why you should be there to anyone.
We'd like to especially thank Alex and Ejay for asking us to make this and helping us with the design.
About asking for and helping us create this design, Ejay said, "I originally approached Strong Athletic bc I use my “strong athletic queer” hat(s) in spaces to signal to community and assert my right to visibility and space. While “queer” is a label I proudly take- I also really feel that for me, it’s important to be a visible real live trans adult! And with all of the misinformation about trans athletes out there, we need positive messages more than ever. It’s an honor to be a small part of this process!"
Alex said, "being trans is a huge piece of my identity and has shaped so much of my life. I'm proud of who I am and that definitely means being proud of being trans and loving my trans/non binary/gnc community"
The colors in the word "Trans" are based on the art created by Monica Helms in the Trans Flag.
A portion of every shirt will be donated to Pull for Pride. To learn more about Pull for Pride or to make a donation, click here.
