A quick transmission of gratitude + update. In June 2015 we released a song called “Young, Latin and Proud” :) — soon after we made shirts of the same design as the single artwork (designed by my brother Carlos Lange 🖤). Three years later we’ve sold over 500 shirts (maybe more I never kept count back then) and I just wanna thank everybody who wears it where ever they go. So many people share with me what the song and wearing the shirt has meant for them. The feeling of resilience through moments of alienation, despair or even a mantra of self-encouragement. Im usually at a loss for words when folks start sharing with me in person what this has meant for them (mostly just trying not to cry). Im grateful that it can be loved + useful in people’s everyday lives. Thank you again and please share with me what it means to you in the comments or in an email :)
I found T-shirt manufacturer who’s approach and perspective on how to interface with the world in producing and consuming really aligned with mine. ( Thank you @rvngintl + @commendnyc for the recommendation ) All of the “Young, Latin & Proud” Tee’s are now made with the @everybody.world Trash tee!. Please go to their page, follow them and read about how thoughtful they are every step of the way. To say that what they are doing is great is an understatement. ❤️🌸
Our prices are still $25 a tee and thank you to @ambientinks for always printing with such high quality.
