Design story behind the product
An unlikely alliance unfolds a story of solidarity. During 1984-1985,the British government attempted the closure of mining pits, leaving miners on strike for 2 years with isolated funds for the National Union of Mineworkers. LGBT activists formed a union to support the strike: The LGSM (Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners) was able to raise a significant amount of funds along with reciprocal supportive visits to miner communities. The alliance proved to be an important milestone in the progression of LGBT rights in the country, as in response, the mining labour groups began to endorse LGBT rights in the parliament and participated in gay prides. The embroideries on the LGSM Hoodie takes its design inspiration from an illustration about the subject, made by Gunbike Erdemir.
