T-Shirt Design Winner!

Congratulations to Chelsea O'Neil, the winner of the 2013 FORGE T-Shirt contest! Chelsea's design captures the FORGE PrideFest booth theme of "Do your hugs come with strings attached?"


This phrase is part of a multi-faceted campaign to promote healthy relationships. The phrase can hold many different meanings, allowing every individual to creatively interpreting it in ways that are meaningful and true for them.


The logo will be prominently displayed on a banner in the booth, on T-shirts FORGE PrideFest volunteers' will be wearing, and on informational cards distributed at the booth.


Visit the FORGE's booth in the Health and Wellness area of PrideFest to see this beautiful design, learn about healthy trans (and LGBQ) relationships, pick up or make your own button, and get a free hugs sticker (and maybe even a consensual free hug, too)!
