Here at Bad Wear Day we like to think of ourselves as advocates for the LGBTQA community - not just bringing subtle fashion choices like our Daddy collection
, but also providing a supportive voice, a shoulder to cry on and a cheerleader for those drunken lip syncs on the dance floor.
Inspired by our love for local performers, the intriguing artwork of Badly Drawn Newcastle Drag
and the wonderful folk over at Northern Pride
we decided to create a little collection of tees that combines all three. Yes, we put that crazy artwork onto clothing and we have absolutely no regrets!
Did we stop there? No we did not - we decided to get a little bit sassier and create a crop top edition with even more of our fabulous local performers included!
As a massive thank you to the wonderful team and alongside the wonderful - totally unknown Banksy - behind the drawings, we're donating 50% of the profits from this collection straight to Northern Pride. For the last 12 years these amazing people have been bringing us a weekend of wonderful celebrations where we as an LGBTQA community can come together and be exactly who we are without any apologies. Every year they commit to what is basically a full year of planning to bring bigger and better things to make pride as fabulous as possible.
Before the big weekend of celebration though, the wonderful people at Northern Pride are hosting a fantastic fundraiser and we're 100% gonna be there cheering on a whole bunch of fabulous performers. From Drag Idol 2019 winner Choriza May
and Newcastle legend Jack Plastiq
to our very own gal Layla Sphnx
(who has her own stunning collection right here at BWD
). If you're in the local area we absolutely recommend you join us for BeScene
(give it a click, you know you want to), we guarantee a spectacular night - oh and we will be giving away one of our tees at the gig!
Check out our Badly Drawn Newcastle Queens collection here
and help us raise money for a super worthy cause, so we can keep pride as stunning as possible!
This is just the start for us too, so keep an eye on our Facebook
feeds for a whole bunch of fashion, thirst traps and exclusives!
Your BWD guys, XO
