To begin the summer, Ron Herman will be working with Best Regards to honor and recognize, pay tribute to, and highlight aspects of Pride Month - officially recognized as such since June 1970. By exploring themes of color, art, and LGBTQ+ / Gay cultural artifacts, we are looking to tell a story through garments and visual display.
Pride month began as a response to the Stonewall Inn raids and riot, as well as a continuation of gay recognition attempts since 1965. A protest was held in response to the Stonewall events in NYC, Chicago, and Los Angeles in 1970, and the movement has grown ever since.
Best Regards has curated a number of extremely rare t-shirts from gay culture, including those from iconic bars that no longer exist in major cities such as San Francisco, Chicago, and others.
