Hi everybody! A couple of days ago I asked if I should sell ‘Black Lives Matter’ shirts and there was a pretty large demand, so I decided to start! I am selling all regular t shirts for $12 dollars, and tie dye shirts for $15. 75% of the proceeds will go to Strong Youth, a non-profit organization based in Long Island. They are committed to youth, family and community development organization specializing in youth and gang violence prevention and intervention. We chose this organization because they are dedicated to educating and empowering our communities to provide alternatives for our youth in Long Island! The other 25% of the profits will go to supplies. We are not looking to make a profit, which is why we chose to donate the money to Strong Youth. I will be posting receipts as well once the money is donated! In addition, if you have a design in mind that you don’t see here, I can most likely make it, just lmk! I have every size (adult and child) and can make the shirt in any color you want! DM me to order yours today!!!!!

We have received support from Neil Patrick Harris, Channing Tatum, Fran Drescher, Carol Channing, Frankie Grande, Bryan Cranston, Kathy Griffin, LeAnn Rimes, Bernadette Peters, Nathan Lane, Joy Behar, Wendy Williams and many others. Broadway Sings for Pride stages concerts and events that bring to light the challenges faced in the LGBTQ community, using the funds raised from these programs to aid LGBTQ youth and their families either directly or through supporting like-minded service organizations. We have been honored by Wagner College (Citizen Alum Award 2015 Honoree), Long Island Gay and Lesbian Film Festival’s 2015 Non-Profit Organization All-Star Award, Tyler Clementi Foundation The Upstander Legacy Honoree Host Committee Member, and a four-time nominee for “Most Valuable Campaign” & “Most Valuable Organizer” from the New Organizing Institute.  Find out more on Instagram (Broadway Sings for Pride), Facebook (Broadway Sings for Pride) or on our website: www.BroadwaySingsForPride.com.
