B'Cause x Lucy Kirk Tote
B'Cause x Lucy Kirk Tote $18.00
We partnered with UK-based illustrator Lucy Kirk to create an exclusive collection that supports LGBTQ+ youth around the globe. This tote reimagines our longstanding tiger icon, voicing the ethos of our latest B'Cause beneficiary, the It Gets Better Project.
ABOUT THE IT GETS BETTER PROJECT
In 2010, Dan Savage and his partner, Terry Miller, uttered three words that would give rise to a global movement focused on the empowerment of LGBTQ+ youth—it gets better. What began as a wildly successful social media campaign to provide hope and encouragement to young LGBTQ+ people has evolved into a major, multimedia platform capable of reaching millions of young people every year.
The It Gets Better Project builds community both internationally and locally by (a) cultivating a growing network of global affiliates that have embraced the It Gets Better Project’s mission to support LGBTQ+ youth in their home countries, (b) engaging with young LGBTQ+ people both on and offline, and (c) connecting them to local community service providers that can provide on-the-ground assistance.
COLLABORATING WITH LUCY KIRK
Lucy Kirk is an illustrator and ceramist based in Bristol, UK. Her whimsical use of color and optimistic style bring a playful and fresh edge to our second B’cause Artist Series.
Lucy’s interpretation of our iconic 26-year old Bengal tiger icon has ushered in a new era of how we view our brand icon. Our tiger has stood as a representation of rarity, grace, and power, but now she is an ally, a supporter, an uplifter, and still fierce as ever.
