Louisiana. A red state so red it has every possible shade of red. From the red shells of boiled crawfish to the red beans with rice. But in that mix are some blues - and not just the musical kind. Cajun, Creole, Coon-ass queers. Proud not only of who they are, but also of the colorful history they were born into.

Texas may be a red state, but we prefer it - and every other state in this country - to be rainbow state. Show off your pride in being a queer Texan! We're putting this against a blue background, just to show Texas isn't all red.

Trump's Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has been given seven words which it is no longer allowed to use. All seven of these words are crucial to the work the CDC does for this country. But hidden in those words are seven letters which tell us what WE must do. Resist.

Queer men and women have always been a part of this country, even if they couldn't be open about it. Celebrate with pride our freedom to be who we know we are. We're still here. We're still queer. About time this nation got the message.

We've all seen (and laughed at) those "Slow children at play" signs. Well, in Sasquatch country, slow children are more likely to fall victim to Bigfoot. A great way to encourage your kids to exercise and run laps. Just to make sure they get away, while the neighbor kids become prey.

The gay community of the 60s and 70s had Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland) to be a friend of. The 80s and 90s had Dorothy Zbornak (Bea Arthur). But what of the younger generation? The 00s and 10s? The new millennials? Well, they have Dory (Ellen DeGeneres), a shortened form of Dorothy. And this time, Dor(oth)y is one of us!

Queers can be geeks, geeks can be queer. But having a warped sense of humor is not a requisite for being either, neither, or both. We've mashed up Star Trek with Monty Python, with just a BAM! of Batman 1960s.

Let people know the Gaydar is strong in you. That in one look, you know. Even if you don't have a finely attuned "sixth sense" about who's queer, at least they'll know you are! This design is based on the face of Divine, the demi-goddess of queerdom. Or just the drag mother of raunch. Since the most-recognized photo of her was in that slimming (ha!) red dress, we chose that as the default color. Feel free to choose whatever color tickles your fancy.

We’ve all seen them. The little fish symbol on cars or places of business. The ones that tell you the people inside won’t listen to facts or bake you a cake for your same-sex wedding. This dead floater parody fish is exactly what you need to get a dialog started. Not with the fish people, but with those who appreciate humor!

A funny (or punny) variant to the old “I went to ______ and all I got was this lousy t-shirt”. You certainly wouldn’t expect to get anything holy in hell, but something filled with holes is certainly likely. This is a great gift for a friend - or for yourself! Way better than a handbasket.

This is from a photograph taken at il Duomo di Firenze (Cattedrale di Santa Maria del Fiore). This statue is above and to the left of the main door to the cathedral. It is of Pope Celestine I. Why he’s depicted with his middle finger extended is unknown. Maybe it’s to ward of pigeons (“shoot the bird”), or perhaps it’s making a statement. Our interpretation is it’s his (and thus, the Catholic Church’s) attitude toward everybody. A bold way to tell people to go F*** themselves.

This fun design parodies the Salvation Army, known for being extremely anti-gay. The basic shield in a calming blue, rather than the angry red, stands out during the holiday season. With the addition of just one letter, salvation becomes a lustful drool of saliva. We suggest a triangle instead of a bell. Or maybe a tambourine. The daring types might want to carry wind chimes to drown out the nasty bell ringers.

Mrs Slocombe, senior sales assistant and head of the ladies’ department at Grace Brothers Department Store, has issued this challenge to the US Presidential candidate Donald Trump. She dares Mr. Trump to even tough her beloved fluffy kitty. She’d have to bathe it for months just to get the grease and stench off of her old, but not dead, pussy.

In mid-June of 2015, a woman who has some homemade rainbow solar light jars in her front yard, got a note from an anonymous neighbor. This person condemned her for having a ‘relentlessly gay’ yard and threatened to call the police. But the term “relentlessly gay” became a viral sensation. This is one of TECHNOQueer’s designs. This is not safe for work.

An all-too-easy pun, but not so easy to put into pictures. Merging Dolly Parton’s body with a llama, and standing her(?) in front of a Tibetan Buddhist monastery took planning and patience. Not sure the Dalai Lama would find this funny…

When you’ve got to go, you’ve gotta go. Even Daleks, Cybermen, and Weeping Angels have to do it. But when the only unoccupied port-a-potty looks a bit TOO familiar… well, what do you do? You can imagine what the Dalek and Cyberman might say, but the Weeping Angel covers her eyes - she’d rather not watch what happens.

Valentine’s Day. Anniversary. Birthday. Give him a gift that says “I Love You”. Sure it’s cheesy. Love should make you laugh. Make your heart flutter. Even if you aren’t married, let that special man in your life know how you feel.

What queer hasn’t seen ‘Mommy Dearest’? Probably the ones still hiding in the closet. Well, Harvey Milk’s message was heard loud and clear, and Joan Crawford wants you to know that the closet is no place for a queer - unless they are popping in to grab something fabulous to wear. Just keep that door open, and remember, no. wire. hangers. Ever!

The dreaded Kobayashi Maru test, the ultimate no-win scenario. It’s not about winning, it’s about how well you handle the situation knowing you’ll fail. One man passed the test (though he cheated), and got command of a starship. After that, anybody who managed to win the no-win scenario got a booby prize. Sometimes, even life in the Federation isn’t fair. Just be glad you didn’t get a year supply of Rice-a-Roni.

We are born this way, even if sometimes who we are on the inside doesn’t match our outsides. Continuing with TECHNOQueer’s use of nature to invoke pride in one’s self, we proudly offer this unique and original interpretation of transgender pride.

We all know that person. You know, the one so gay that they bleed rainbow colors. So gay that they’ve never been in the closet – unless it was to get their Dolce, Prada, Gucci, or Armani outfits and shoes. So gay, when they open their mouth, a Louis Vuitton purse falls out. Hell, it might even be you!

The Doctor’s ultimate - and first - true enemy. Bad-ass enough to drive him to destroy them all AND the other Time Lords. Odd that they are harder to get rid of than cockroaches, and look like (and sound) like a can of RAID bug spray…

A parody of a Donald Trump campaign poster, featuring Queen Elizabeth II promising to make America Great (Britain) again. Certainly a better option than Trump’s idea of making America great. Lizzy never cared for the upstart colonists. Now that she sees how poorly they have run the colony, it is time to bring them back into the British Imperial fold.
Who says Star Wars fans can’t deal with a good pun? Okay, maybe that blaster and light saber aimed at my throat. But the power of the farce is strong in me. Somebody want to lend me a Han? Just one would be fine.

After the celebration on Endor, and the fatty foods the Ewoks served, it became obvious that the flatulence would never end. While the Wookie didn’t mind, that stuck-up Princess was ready to shove a light saber up her ass to put a stop to it all. But wise old Yoda just sat and rocked on the waves of gas, knowing they would never end. Hang ten, dude, and surf on.

While the older queers have Dorothy Gale (Judy Garland), the younger generations have their own Dorothy to idolize. She’s tough, stands up for herself and others, and has a snarky bite. Dorothy Zbornak (Bea Arthur) from ‘Designing Women’ is who every gay boy hopes to grow up to be. As if they could ever have a deep voice like hers.

Queer folk aren’t just myths, legends, or divas. Some actually write books that people of all sorts read. These are a sampling of these authors, each represented by one of their most well-known works. If you’ve read some of them – great! Read more. Or better yet, write something that will make you a recognized queer author!

Ah, the indomitable Professor River Song. How can you be calm when she’s like the rapids before the water fall? The match in the powder keg. The storm before the hurricane. But two words, and you know everything is about to get a lot bumpier. And that you’ll enjoy every minute of the adventure.

The Eleventh Doctor. Or was he the thirteenth? If you count the War Doctor (which apparently nobody does), and the Tenth Doctor’s regeneration back to himself (again, which apparently nobody does), then he would represent the lucky thirteen. Maybe. Regardless, Eleven certainly gave a new meaning to ‘A madman with a box.’

Judy Garland. Diva and gay icon. Her portrayal of Dorothy in The Wizard of OZ won more than just the hearts of queers; she won their gratitude and dedication. Because so many gays associated OZ with a better world, where they saw her as a beacon to that far off land. A land of TechnoColor, emeralds, witches (and green-faced bitches), and just plain fabulousness. Judy’s death may have been a trigger for the infamous Stonewall Riots, considered by many to be the start of the modern gay rights movement.

In the early days of AIDS, Bobbie Campbell became a well-known activist. First, wearing a homemade silkscreened shirt which read, “KS Poster Boy”. Later, after the term AIDS (for Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome) was coined, he had a new shirt made. This is my replica of his shirt.

To the queer community, Judy Garland’s Dorothy Gale from ‘The Wizard of OZ’ was one of the first true Divas. Before Cher, Barbra, Madonna, or Lady Gaga, to be gay meant you were a ‘Friend of Dorothy’. Flash forward a nearly half a century. A new generation (and the older) found another Dorothy to call friend. Bea Arthur’s Dorothy Zbornak called to us, her blunt stare made it clear that she wasn’t going to take your sh*t. She was strong, confident, and fierce – long before that became a common term in our community. Celebrate your love for BOTH Dorothy Gale and Dorothy Zbornak with this original design. And thank you for being a friend of TECHNOQueer, too!
