HRC’s limited edition Marc Jacobs-backed shirt

JACOBS BACKS HRC: Marc Jacobs is lending his influence in the fight for marriage equality. In collaboration with the Human Rights Campaign, he has designed a limited edition T-shirt featuring the image of a lesbian couple with their child and the words, “I pay my taxes, I want my RIGHTS!” on the front, and “Marc Jacobs Proudly Supports HRC” on the back.

HRC is the nation’s largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender civil rights organization. Because of the federal Defense of Marriage Act, legally married same-sex couples are excluded from more than 1,100 federal rights and benefits of marriage — many of them related to taxes.

Some 500 cotton T-shirts are being offered at HRC stores in Provincetown, Mass; San Francisco, Palm Springs, Washington, D.C., and through shop.hrc.org. Net proceeds will go toward HRC’s fight for equality. The unisex T-shirts retail for $35. Previous designs have been released by Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, Kenneth Cole, Alex & Chloe, Christian Siriano, Heatherette, Nike and American Apparel.
