Sigur Rós release marriage equality T-Shirt
Following those fuckin comments by Margaret Court, the band decided to commission a special T-Shirt celebrating positivity and inclusion, with proceeds going towards Australian Marriage Equality. Bloody legends!
The band approached London-based illustrator Andrew Raeto create a special crest. Says Andrew: ͞What an amazing commission, combining awareness about marriage equality with the amazing Sigur Rós in a hand drawn crest to raise money to support Australian Marriage Equality… of course I’m saying yes. That anyone still has to raise awareness about marriage equality in this day and age seems bizarre to me. As long as some people still think they have the right to decide who other people fall in love with then there’s still work to be done.”
Sigur Rós added: ͞”We know Margaret Court’s opinions are not shared by the majority of Australians. We want to add our voice to the call for marriage equality in Australia — right here on Margaret Court Arena itself. Australia should be a country that celebrates positivity and inclusion, as well as achievement on the sporting field.”
The tee will be available at all of the band’s Australian performances, including Splendour. International customers or fans not attending the performances will be able to buy the t-shirt via sigur-ros.co.uk or bandtshirts.com.au
