Description:

White t-shirt.
Reverse: "Because lesbians and gays are discriminated against in employment and housing and because how we act is more important than who we are and if we get harassed it's our problem and if we get attacked we provoked it and if we raise our voices we're flaunting ourselves and if we enjoy sex we're perverts and if we have AIDS we deserve it and if we march with pride we're recruiting children and if we stand up for our rights we are overstepping our boundaries and if we don't have a heterosexual relationship we haven't given it a chance and if we love someone of our own sex we're just going through a phase. And because our relationships are not acknowledged and we're told our love is not real and if we're out of the closet we get bashed and/or murdered and if we want children we're unnatural and if we have them our families are not legally recognized because lesbian and gay existence has been written out of her/history and homophobia is sanctioned by the police and courts and ... for lots and lots of other reasons, I am part of the lesbian & gay liberation movement."
Front: A pink triangle superimposed on a sunburst.
