The BOY/BYE series is a lighthearted and fun expression of solidarity with those who struggle to see themselves in the stories presented to them. We’re launching pins, prints, stickers, and patches all to showcase women of color and to support an incredible community of artists! Check out the full story behind our work on Kickstarter and all the rad stuff we’re doing.
