Since RMNB first launched 10 years ago, we have worked hard to make it a space for everyone. So to celebrate Pride Month and honor the LGBTQ+ community, we have released six new pride shirts that are available for purchase. The designs were created by RMNB’s Rachel Cohen (@kat326) and they will remain in our store moving forward.
Our new RMNB puck rainbow shirt now includes the colors black and brown, which acknowledges that queer people of color are often not fully included in the LGBTQ+ community. We also highlight other parts of the LGBTQ+ community who love hockey and celebrate bisexual, transgender, pansexual, and asexual, and lesbian pride.
LGBTQ+ Pride (Rainbow plus Black/Brown)
Bisexual Pride (Pink/Purple/Blue)
Transgender Pride (Pink/Blue/White)
Pansexual Pride (Pink/Yellow/Blue)
Asexual Pride (Black/Gray/White/Purple)
Lesbian Pride (Orange/Light Orange/White/Pink/Dark Pink)
From now until the possible start of the NHL’s 24-team playoff (July 30), proceeds from the sale of the shirts will benefit SMYAL and Trans Lifeline. SMYAL is a nonprofit that works to empower lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning youth in the Washington metropolitan area. Trans Lifeline is a trans-led organization that connects trans people to the community, support, and resources they need to survive and thrive.
Hockey is a sport that should be enjoyed by all. Hockey blogging, too. Thank you in advance for your support. Let’s make a difference and look good while doing so!
