Q: Why pigeons though?
A: I like to think of pigeons as an allegory for the queer experience and groups - they're scrappy, have strength in numbers, and are equally feared, disgusted, and misunderstood. But I think their resilience and feathering is beautiful. I CAN KEEP GOING.
Q: Do you take commissions?
A: Yes! Submit a message to discuss specifics. I'm open to original designs being used for your own use, but ask you share that in the request if you will be using the image on your own merchandise.
Q: Do you ship internationally?
A: At this time, the shop is only set up to mail items within the U.S. However, I'd be happy to discuss a way to send internationally. Send me a message via the Contact Us link!
Q: What organizations are you donating your proceeds to?
A: Proceeds in 2018 went to Plants of Concern, a regional rare-plant monitoring program through the Chicago Botanic Gardens, and Affinity Community Services, a social justice organization serving the needs of the Black LGBTQ community of Chicago. 2019 recipients are not yet determined.
Q: Who are the queens featured in the product photos?
A: Logan Zass (@loganzass) and Joonage A Trois (@joonageatrois). Book and tip these queens, they're incredible.
