Pride 2022 Button & Poster
“No pride for some of us without liberation for all of us.”—Marsha P. Johnson
It has been 40 years since the first Pride in Tulsa. As the obscured poster text from the June 1983 newsletter by the Gay Press Association appeals, “During our celebrating, we must set new goals. There is still a great need to join closer together. We must work together and not be at odds with each other…[keeping] in mind this year’s theme: PRIDE IN UNITY.”
Inspired by decades of queer activism, this poster and button series highlight a broad range of issues facing 2SLGBTQ+ people today. Critical updates acknowledge the members of our community that for too long were overlooked and erased from the telling of our history.
100% of the proceeds will be donated to Freedom Oklahoma to support their efforts in continuing to fight for our queer liberation.
Each bundle includes the following items:
- one random 2.25" button
- 7x10" riso mini print (printed on 70lb text weight off white paper)
