Fantastic, custom bowties for every occasion. There are great reasons to buy from Immigreat Designs. Adriana Santos, the designer of Immigreat Designs says: Statistics do not tell the story of immigration, people do. By using the word immigrant as a negative phrase, we deny the importance of immigrants to our society. We are a nation of immigrants. I was 4 years old when I came to the United States with my family. On January 4, 2010 while waiting for the bus, I was approached by two young men and robbed at gun point. They took my phone, my money, but most importantly my peace of mind. As the victim of that crime I became eligible to apply for a U-Visa. It is a visa that is given to immigrants who are victims of serious crimes committed on US grounds. As I create my bow ties, I am putting into them the passion behind my story. Every bow tie sold contributes to my lawyer fees and applications.  They are a part of me, and I forever driven to keep creating unique pieces. Don’t see what you want on the site? Custom orders are available! Email Adriana at immigreatdesigns@gmail.com.

TomboyX  was founded the way many brands are, trying to fill a need that had gone unfilled for far too long. Owners (and tomboys) Fran & Naomi asked themselves, “How hard can it be to make good underwear?” And by that they meant underwear that fit regular bodies and fit how they see themselves. And underwear that anybody could feel comfortable in, regardless of where they fell on the size or gender spectrum. In trying to fill a need, they unwittingly unleashed an outpouring of emotion. The comments and conversations, e-mails and letters that they read from their customers told them they were onto something bigger. We LOVE this underwear!!!

Take the journey of a lifetime to Africa with Jody Cole of  Wild Rainbow African Safaris!  Many people dream of visiting Africa during their lifetime, but few truly experience the magnificent wonders of this continent. Check out their classic Cool Cats Safari – July 16-25, 2018. Experience life in a Maasai Village, game drives in the shadow of Kilimanjaro, track lion in the Ngorongoro Crater, watch cheetah race across the Serengeti Plains and experience the thunder of the migrating wildebeest and zebra.

Check out our favorite toy from Babeland. They’ve become a staple of the sex toy chest: gorgeously-sculpted glass dildos!  Glass dildos are easy to clean, and let’s not forget their greatest feature: they’re visually stunning. Some toys look enough like art pieces that you can happily display them on a shelf or coffee table, with no one the wiser. Hand-blown glass dildos in carnival colors captivate like a grown-up carousel ride. Since they’re hand-blown, each dildo is unique, and colors may vary from black, to royal, to pastel, to rainbow.

Founded in 2013 following the repeal of Proposition 8, Kipper Clothiers was born out of a need to create clothing that inspires pride and confidence within the LGBT community. Erin Berg and Kyle Moshrefi met while working at a fashion start-up in San Francisco’s Fashion District. A former J. Crew stylist and one of Everlane’s first employees, Moshrefi was looking to disrupt the fashion industry with an innovative take on well-fitted custom suits. Berg, a neuroscience graduate looking to make a career shift, recognized an opportunity to stand out in a saturated market and possessed the operational skills to build a business. Tired of the lack of options for lesbians and transgender men looking for high-quality, hand crafted and well-fitted custom suits and shoes, Berg and Moshrefi decided to start Kipper Clothiers.
