Celebrate Gay Pride Month With Manga Inspired Jiraiya Capsule Collection
By Eric Diaz on June 22, 2014
June is Gay Pride month, and what better way to celebrate if you’re a fan of gay-themed manga and anime than with these awesome T-shirts from trendy clothing company Opening Ceremony? Announced (via Out.com) the company has partnered with LGBT manga-inspired apparel brand MASSIVE and launched a capsule collection, “MASSIVE for Opening Ceremony”, that features artwork from manga artist Jiraiya. MASSIVE had previously done this Jiraiya print sweatshirt last year. For those not in the know, Jiraiya is best known for his homoerotic sumo/beefcake comic art, kind of a Tom of Finland for the Asian market. (and if you don’t know who Tom of Finland is, all I gotta say is… Google is your friend. Let’s just say it’s too porny to run here.)
While the collection will feature the t-shirts and muscle shirts (of course) rugby shorts, a beach towel, and possibly even a sex toy. Because why not. Unlike a lot of apparel marketed towards gay men, these aren’t just aimed at young skinny twinks, but there are also sizes XS-XXXL, for the big bear in your life.(and I don’t mean bears as in animals that live in the woods. Do I gotta explain this one too, straight people?) But skinny twinks can get some shirts in their size too, don’t worry…you’re still covered.
