Description:

White shirt.
Navy blue collar. American flag, Greek lambda symbol "1984 Lesbian and Gay Bands of America" "Los Angeles '84"

One of the 72 t-shirts originally printed with the Lambda in the reverse "h" position to represent marching Lambdas for the marching bands. By turning the t-shirt 90 degrees to the right (counter clockwise) you can see the Lambdas in their more traditional position. The response to the Marching Lambdas was so negative that all the remaining t-shirts were manufactured in the traditional style.
