nice drawing

Wonderkitten

I like the title and concept! $5!

"not that there's anything wrong with it"... seinfeld
nice design!

Nice idea. At first I was gonna say that it's not immediately obvious that they're gay, but actually I prefer it that way. First you realise they're all male lions, then you realise they're totally getting it on!

Nice. 5

Very clever! :D $5

"clever and disgusting..."

Disgusting? How so?

Great job with the manes & grass & ass-sniffing!

13strong

I was just thinking... why the ass sniffing?

I ain't no zoologist - do male and female lions sniff each others asses, or is that just dogs?

If male lions don't sniff female lions asses, why are these ones?

13strong

Oh, and are they wearing eye-shadow?

13strong

Uhm... I dunno. That's why I asked.

The 'eye-shadow' could just be shading, or it could be supposed to be eye-shadow. If it's eye-shadow, I think this design would be better without.

The butt-sniffing thing is less of a clincher for me, but I was curious to know - if heterosexual male lions don't sniff the butts of female lions, why are these gay ones sniffing each other's butts?

Don't get me wrong - I think this is a great design - subtle and clever and nicely executed. It's just that it would be sad if it veered into needless stereotyping and stuff.

DeChance

wouldn't wear a pink tee, even though it's completely appropriate. a mustard/yellow tee for golden showers would be perfect.

androsaph

I love the fact they all have gay facial expressions. I can almost hear the sibiliant lisping in their roarssssssssssss..... $5

Hahaha. Sweet. $5

(not that I'm into any form of stereotyping mind you)

ahah!

Gay is funny.

Paw...assing.

Nobody will get this, not some people. I like the pun tho, so maybe put some rainbow-colored type objects on them or around them, or just have the lions walking down a street kissing and having confetti thrown at them a la a gay prude parade! As is, it doesn't really lend itself as well as it could have to make the theme clear.

"mainly gay themed shirts being submitted and printed."

What complete bollocks. Name me five recent prints that are at all related to homosexuality...?

And don't start chucking rainbows on this design - the subtlety is what makes it so good. Some people just can't think "gay" without thinking "screaming flaming homo rainbow ass-sex high-pitched flouncy bouncy homo homo homo!". And those people are idiots.

Nice!! I like the colors and the rendering. This would also look good lower and wrapped around the side. $5.

So just making all the lions pink and red is the way to demonstrate why this pride is gay? Oh, that's so much better.

Chef57

I like this. It's subtle enough to get away with on any high street.

warwickswr

Hahaha, this is a hilarious idea, but not my style to wear.

13strong

"So just making all the lions pink and red is the way to demonstrate why this pride is gay? Oh, that's so much better."

Actually, I think this would be even better without the pink/red colour design.

littlem

rainbow colours would be funny here

Vindemiatrix

"Actually, I think this would be even better without the pink/red colour design."

I agree in terms of personal wearability, since I don't wear pink... but would that then be too subtle for some people?

Funny and great design! 5

Omair

Threadless isn't going gay, it's been gone gay, actually we're in a gay recession what with the loss of certain bloggers.

murgles

Laugh This is hilarious. I would absolutely buy it just to watch people laugh when I told them it was gay pride... the one up the back looks like its sniffing butt. :o

NessaChan

Clever! :O

thanks for all of your support!

I really hope this gets printed. It's progressive and funny enough to be worn by both gays and not-so-gays. I could see some iconic gay person wearing this - someone like Tom Cruise.

aled
aled profile pic Alumni

Can I get sued for that?

aled
aled profile pic Alumni

PS: Tom Cruise is not gay. But he is something of a gay icon. That's what I meant to say.

Vindemiatrix

I've just thought... could we maybe see a purple version for the girls? Pink isn't subversive enough for us. :p Also, I can't wear light pink. Maybe even make it a really deep pink. But, y'know, there aren't enough purple shirts - redress the balance? It'd move my 5 up to a $5.

dkitsov

$5

Emochu

$5 for sure! Agreeing with everyone else on this, there is just enough subtlety to the design, but it's fairly easy to eventually realize what the shirt is trying to say.

Plus I don't own any pink shirts yet, so there's nothing holding me back from buying it were it to be printed :3

Kadet

Let me just say that the lion in front, who is looking quite pleased with himself, is absolutely adorable. I love that paw!

13strong

joolya - nice one. Since that's something cats do, that's cool.

If it had been implying that gay men smell each other's butts, therein would be confusion.

Still number 1!

decent score! kudos

I like this one a lot better than the new one

jiveturkeyblues

this is the most amazing beautiful thing ever

With the International Day Against Homophobia on the 17th of May, it's a pity this can't be printed in time. But it could be printed in time for the Gay Pride festivals this summer!

Come on Threadless - print print print!

Vindemiatrix

Agreed!

And I would like to reiterate that it would be great in PURPLE/mauve/blue-ish for girls. Because there's nothing even slightly queer about a girl wearing pink.

(And I almost certainly wouldn't wear it since this shade of pink would look terrible on me...)

$5 for a girly purple version!

Here's hoping this gets printed this week - in time for Gay Pride this Summer!

I wonder if this should win the most reprinted tee of all time award?
it certainly IS witty, and original, and unapologetically supportive of gay rights.
