In Our Bones Collection

Halloween may be over, but we at gc2b celebrate who we are in our bones all year long. 

"In Our Bones” was created in collaboration with Erik Teague, a multi-talented, nationally known and awarded costume designer, maker, illustrator, and podcast host with over 20 years of experience. He also happens to be an out and proud trans man from the South.

"This collection came about as a response to the many arguments against us in the LGBTQ+ community,” says Erik. “Often, our validity as individuals is reduced down to the anatomy of biology, rather than the anatomy of the Truth. I wanted to create designs that show the honesty of gender variation as something intrinsic and natural.”

He adds, “Everyone deserves the freedom to live in their bodies as a whole being, instead of someone else’s idea of what it should be. Who we are is in our bones and we are worthy of vibrant lives, to be honored, and to be celebrated in our expression.”

For every “In Our Bones” product we sell, gc2b will donate $1 USD to DCATS (DC Area Transmasculine Society) on Erik’s behalf.
