The six images highlight Art of Drag’s the reimagining of famous artworks that feature cultural female icons, which it then replaces with drag artists. Each original Art of Drag artwork features a drag queen, created by an award-winning independent art house of LGBTQ+ artists and allies.
The range is now on sale at tallboyprints.com. Tall Boy Prints and The London Studio will, between them, donate 20% of the sales of the prints during Pride Month to akt, a charity that supports LGBTQ+ young people ages 16-25 in the U.K. who are facing or experiencing homelessness or living in a hostile environment.
There’s also a sustainability angle to this agreement. A tree will be planted for each Art of Drag print sold, thanks to Tall Boy Prints’ partnership with Ecologi, a company whose mission is to inspire and empower
British Heart Foundation LGBTQ cards, The London Studio
That’s not all that has been keeping the London Studio busy in the runup to Pride Month. A member of The London Studio’s LGBTQ+ team recently designed a range of LGBTQ+ charity cards for the British Heart Foundation. They are available now in British Heart Foundation stores and in the charity’s online shop.
Pride Month is a vibrant and inclusive global celebration that honors the LGBTQ+ community, its history, its achievements, and the ongoing struggle for equality. In the United Kingdom, the first official Pride march took place in London in 1972. Pride Month in the U.K. culminates in a march in London from Hyde Park Corner to Whitehall Place on 1 July that annually attracts more than 500 groups and 30,000 participants.
“Our aim is always to work with exceptional images that will bring color, originality and joy to people’s homes – and Art of Drag does all that and more,” says Karen Mace, director, creative head, Tall Boy Prints Company. “The stunning and witty imagery would be a hit with customers any time but launching these artworks during Pride Month is both very appropriate and very special. We’ve immensely enjoyed working with The London Studio and its talented team on these wonderful and memorable prints.”
“We’re thrilled to be bringing Art of Drag to a set of prints from Tall Boy Prints, one of the leading names in wall art and a company with a justifiably strong reputation for curating collections of exceptional images – and of course a company that shares our passion for sustainability,” says Soula Zavacopoulos, founder, director, The London Studio. “Tall Boy Prints is a wonderful addition to the fast-growing Art of Drag licensing program.”
