Closets Are for Clothes is picking up speed and has been growing rapidly since our official launch on May 31st. We are eager to show you everything that we have been working so hard on. CAFC is beyond grateful for the overwhelming amount of love and support that we have been shown in these few short months. We have received countless messages of gratitude for our cause, reminding us daily of why we formed this organization in the first place. Words cannot express how thankful we are to each and every one of you; for believing in our cause, for believing in our company, and for believing in us. We wouldn’t be where we are today without you.
Last week, we added a member to our Closets Are for Clothes team. Lindzay Taylor has been working closely with us since May, and has quickly become an asset to the CAFC family. We are certain that she will go above and beyond our expectations with her position in marketing and promotions. We couldn’t be more proud to have her with us. From the beginning, Jessie and I have been very particular with the people who become involved in our organization. Over the last few months, Lindzay's unyielding determination and interest in helping CAFC grow has not gone unnoticed. We are very lucky to have her on the CAFC team. Welcome aboard Lindzay.
In the beginning of August, we released our latest line of t-shirts. Our newest designs definitely make a statement. With the fight for marriage equality currently underway in Michigan, we created the MI Love is Equal shirt. Because although same-sex marriage hasn’t been legalized here yet, Closets Are for Clothes knows that our love is equal, regardless of what the law says.
Here is to the outlaws. To the ones who aren’t scared to be themselves and to those who aren’t afraid to fight for what we deserve. Together we are a movement, stronger than anything standing in our way. Together we are Love Outlaws. This shirt is dedicated to those of us who aren’t afraid live and LOVE outside of the law. All CAFC apparel is available for purchase online, at closetsareforclothes.org click on ‘OUR CLOSET’. Be sure to visit our website frequently to stay up to date with latest designs, events, and blog posts!
So far, CAFC has spread the love to 6 different states through our online store. We have made it our mission to reach all 50 states, and cover our map in pride. Visit our website to view an interactive map of the states that we have reached, and to see the faces of pride. Help us cover our map by submitting a photo of yourself in CAFC apparel, to be featured on the map.
A couple weeks ago, CAFC was lucky enough to join forces with an extremely talented photographer by the name of Kelly Karnesky. We spent the day roaming the streets of Ypsilanti and Ann Arbor, with a diverse team of LGBT models. With the combination of Kelly’s witchery behind a camera and our gorgeous group of models, the shots turned out to be more than we could have ever even dreamed of. We have posted a few teasers on our Instagram and Facebook, but the real gold has yet to come.
You can find us this Saturday August 23rd at Michigan Pride in Lansing. We will Rally at the Capitol, decked out in our newest MI Love Is Equal shirts. Join us in taking a stand for LGBT rights. The March to the Capitol steps begins at 1PM. Visit http://www.michiganpride.org for more information on the events scheduled throughout the day. We will also be selling all of our shirts at this event. If you see us, don’t be afraid to stop by and say hello!
So that is a look at what we have been up to this summer. We hope you’ll continue to support CAFC as we grow. At the end of the day, all we really want is to help people in any way possible. We hope to continue to serve as a light in the dark, to find your way out, and to be proud when you get there.
Closets Are for Clothes, and this is only the beginning.
