DESIGN: Sikum Limbu

The idea behind these t-shirts were simple, I wanted to work with different graphic designers and LGBTIQ+ people to create Pride tees with a Nepali theme that people of all sexuality and gender could wear on the day of PRIDE or anytime they wish to.

This is a t-shirt not only for people who identify as LGBTIQ+ but also for our allies, the people who have supported sexual minorities, joined us in raising a voice and helped us in fair representation.

DESIGN: Square Studio

The t-shirts are available for pre-order now through till 17th June for Nrs 999 through Metaphor. You can visit their social media pages or visit their website and by May 21st, all the t-shirts and Pride stories of Nepali LGBTIQ people will be available for people to see, read and shop.

We hope to start delivering the Pride Nepal tees from 17th June onwards, which is exactly a month from today! Today, happens to be the International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOTB) and I made sure we did everything we could to have the first photo out today.

A small amount from each Pride Nepal tee profit will go towards supporting a grassroots led LGBTIQ+ collective in Nepal.
