LOVE IS LOVE: Make a statement, help a good cause

Love Is Love Orlando

It’s been five days now, but if you’re like me, the mass murder that occurred early Sunday morning, June 12,  in the Orlando gay nightclub called Pulse still weighs heavy on your heart. If you’re like me, you want to do something — anything — to help, in some way. Now, Greenville Avenue T-shirt shop Bullzerk — you can do something. And you can look stylish while you do.

Bullzerk is now selling the “Love is Love, Orlando” T-shirt, modeled in the photo above by Dallas Voice’s very own Chad Mantooth. The shop will donate 10 percent of all their sales today and tomorrow (Friday and Saturday, June 17-18), to the fund to benefit the Pulse shooting victims.

The folks at Bullzerk told Dallas Voice: “We are printing this #‎LoveIsLove shirt over the next three days, so Dallasites can start wearing their support for #‎Orlando. Stop by the Greenville store and you can pick your color. This Friday and Saturday we are also donating 10 percent of all sales (not just this shirt) to the #‎PulseOrlando victims fund.”

You can order your shirt — for $23 — online here, or go by Bullzerk’s shop at 1909 Greenville Ave.

Movember gets a little gay

I’ve never officially participated in Movember — the annual month-long event to draw attention to men’s health, that entails growing out a moustache all month long while raising money for charity — because, as you can see, I do not really need to grow out a ‘stache, as I’ve been a burly beardy since my 20s. But I believe in the cause, and wanted to give some props to other gays who bothered to go hirsute for loot.

Here are some of the locals who allowed their upper lip to shout “’70s porn actor” rather than shave for a month. You can even still contribute to each of them — the event continues through Nov. 30. You can probably expect some to razor off the ol’ pushbroom after that. Me? I’m sticking with it. At least until the next time I slip and take out a chunk and have to start over … which, to be honest, is a few times a year.

Hey, having facial hair doesn’t make you coordinated.
