We teamed up with BOI BAND (IG: @queerboiband), an LA-based all queer pop vocal band. BOI BAND is comprised of talented singers of various sexual orientations and gender identities, representing the beauty and diversity of the queer community.

This Cheetah print button-up is the perfect shirt to wear to the beach or out on the town for fun summer nights!

Coda, one of the bois whom this shirt is named for had this to say about queer fashion:

My whole life I never felt like I fit in. Being a queer person in a black female temple, born and raised in America’s heteronormative, cis-white male-dominated world, my spaces to fully express who I truly am are very limited. Shopping for me at one point was a type of therapy, and an outlet for me to present myself how I wanted others to view me. 

In no setting am I “too queer/black/feminine/ masculine”, but in every setting, you have to know your environment and put on the proper armor. I have gone through many years of life figuring out which pieces of armour help me move through this experience most effectively, and it’s usually a feat trying to find the right pieces and put them together.

Being able to have the same convenience as fully masculine and feminine presenting consumers to shop for all of my pieces in one place is something that I thought for a long time would only be a great idea and maybe after my lifetime would actually be.
