If you know our story at Fangirl Shirts
, then you know that we (the founders) met each other on Twitter because we both love Lost Girl. You probably also know that one of our first shirts was a Lost Girl fanshirt that said "FANGIRL" in the iconic font and colors from the show. And you also probably have heard that we design and market shirts primarily for women, since we had experienced a void in the market for shirts specifically for and about women.
Then a guy on Twitter approached us with a story and a question. He told us that he was a FTM transgender individual who had fallen in love with Lost Girl and Doccubus before transitioning. He asked if we might consider releasing a version of our Lost Girl shirt that said "FANBOY."
We loved the idea. Lost Girl is a show that has meant so much to so many people. We are thrilled to make our shirt more inclusive. And we also want it to be a force for good - so 25% of the profits from the Lost Girl FANBOY shirt will go directly to support the work of the National Center for Transgender Equality, which works for the safety and civil rights of transgender people.
