Make a Statement of Equality and Style with Gay Pride Bow Ties

When I think of style, class, and high profile events, I have always thought of bow ties. For some reason, they just give me the feeling and look of sophistication, so I have always included one in my outfits for any major event I attend in the past few years. Recently I met Jorge Santana, President of Gay Pride Bow Ties, and he shared with me that he would like people to think of equality when they see, wear, or think of his ties. The mission of his company is to unify people and make a difference in the world.

Gay Pride Bow Tieswere recently at Kansas City Pride, the PFLAG National Convention in Portland, and I’m sure quite a few same-sex weddings. I am so excited to wear mine this fall and winter for the formal events I know I’ll be attending.

The neat thing about these ties is that five dollars from each tie sold is donated to various non profits, depending on the style you purchase. This means you look good and do good at the same time!

Gay Pride Bow Ties are made of fine silk and are high quality pieces to add to any dapper guys wardrobe. With the various styles, there is sure to be one that fits your personality perfectly and there are even pre-made ties for those of us who just can’t get the hang of tying a perfect looking bow tie.

How many of us like to wear something that stands out and makes a statement? I’m sure most of us would love to have a special piece in our collection that will make us look sharp and grab attention wherever we go. Plus in the age of selfies, I must say, Gay Pride Bow Ties make for quite a picture and post! And trust me, they aren’t just for same-sex weddings, you can rock these classy ties at any wedding or event!

When I asked Jorge about what he hopes for for the future of Gay Pride Bow Ties he responded, “The next step is to create the best bow tie for breast cancer and that for every $400 donated it will help 12 women battling breast cancer to get a wig. If people start purchasing the product and don’t care about the name Gay Pride Bow Ties, then we have done our part. We hope to create more bow ties like this in the future.“

How do you wear your pride? Pick one up for yourself and show the world.

Radical Something – “Pure” (Official Video)

It’s no secret that I am a huge fan of the group Radical Something.  These guys continue to deliver smooth music and exceptional videos.  ’Pure’ is their new single, and new video directed by the always innovative Shannen Doherty.  This is Shannen’s second time directing a video for the group and I couldn’t be happier.

The video and song ‘Pure’ are a testament to life and love.  The theme of life being pure no matter who you are, who you love, or what you are is one that we really need to hear, especially now.  Love is Love, no matter who it is that you love and we can’t really help who we fall in love with or who we develop connections with. I think the idea that all of this is pure is truly spot on.  It’s not about lust, sex, or anything dirty. It’s about plain and simple love and truly being in love.  Our society has equated love, especially same-sex love with something nasty or wrong for too long.  We blame people for loving who they love even though we can’t really control that.

I think if we all broke true LOVE down to it’s purest form, we would understand better why others fall in love as well as why we fall in love. Pure love can be shocking even to the people who fall into it.  We should all be searching not for temporary satisfaction but that lasting love that comes from such an innocent place in our hearts.  No limits, no boundaries, no hesitation, and most of all, no worries about what anyone thinks.

I would like to congratulate all involved in this project: Josh Cocktial, DJ Big Red, Loggy, Holly Marie Combs, Shannen Doherty, the cast, and the crew! Music should entertain as well as make a positive statement and this absolutely does both!
