John Bartlett’s Rainbow Dog Shirts Are Just in Time for Pride Month

Why shop for one good cause — when you can shop for two at the same time? Fashion designer John Bartlett boldly harnesses the power of fashion to raise awareness of his dearest causes. (That’s so Aries!)

Bartlett’s irresistible T-shirts proudly showcase the image of Tiny Tim, the tripawd shelter dog he adopted and made his creative muse. Sadly, Tim passed away of cancer, but John keeps his memory alive to help other shelter pets in need, putting the dog’s uniquely handsome silhouette on fab clothing designed to promote animal rescue by raising money for the Tiny Tim Fund. Ten percent of every sale is donated to the fund.

Now, in honor of Gay Pride Month, John has unveiled a new, limited-edition “capsule collection” of his signature Ts. Titled “Gay, Proud, and Compassionate,” the collection features T-shirts ($40) and tanks ($30) for guys and girls sporting the Tiny Tim logo in rainbow foil. 

With these traffic-stopping threads, your fashion statement becomes a compassion statement! “The tops are not just a fun and colorful way to show your pride this year,” John says, “they also highlight another part of our strong and powerful community that is often overlooked — our compassion. The LGBT community cares about all members of this planet whose voices are not often heard.”

One-stop shopping has never been more fun, chic, or consciousness-raising. Happy Pride!
