Artists Design Tracksuits In Support of the Russian LGBT Community

by Gary Pini
Design by Ryan McNamara

If you're a little peeved about Russia's anti-gay legislation, but still want to support the Olympics, a new tracksuit could be the answer. A bunch of contemporary artists have designed a line of cool outfits that will benefit the Russian LGBT Network and help promote equal rights for all. Participating artists include: AK Burns, Jibz Cameron, TM Davy, Christian Dietkus, Scott Hug, Casey Legler, Kalup Linzy, Michael Mahalchick, Ryan McNamara, Robert Melee, Lucas Michael, Wardell Milan, David Mramor, Jack Pierson, Colin Self and more. On the same day as the opening ceremony in Sochi on February 7th, this "Purple & Gold" collection will be launched at the Louis B. James gallery (143b Orchard Street, New York) at a party from 7 to 9 p.m. All the tracksuits were produced by a new company called PRINT ALL OVER ME that will print any uploaded design or pattern on clothing or objects. Scope a few of the designs above and below.
