Today, gender-fluid musician Antiboy, announced partnership with graphic designer Jason Ebeyer and NY-based The Phluid Project, to provide support for LGBTQ+ youth community through the creation of a limited-edition designer ‘One Love’ T-shirt. With the sale of each T-Shirt, 100% of the proceeds will directly benefit The Hendrick Martin Institute (HMI), the United States largest LGBTQ+ youth services organization.
The launch of the ‘One Love’ T-shirt coincides with the upcoming, release of Antiboy’s anthem, ‘One Love’ that is available on all digital service providers on April 30th. The anticipated release of Antiboy’s single ‘One Love’ almost a year after the untimely death of Antiboy artist Harry Hains has been a labor of love for many involved.
The up-tempo single not only brought back together famed super-producers, Red One and Fernando Garibay – who last collaborated on Lady Gaga’s incredibly successful ‘Born This Way’ album. The single became even more poignant when Garibay added additional vocals by the late Hain’s mother, musician and actress Jane Badler.
“We are excited to release these limited-edition Tee shirts in partnership with Phluid and HMI organization which helps thousands of LGBTQ youth every year. My son Harry passed away last . As a non-binary, he struggled with labels and conceived Antiboy. The Tee shirts will commemorate the release of his Track ‘One Love’ and celebrate the equality of all humans.”Jane Badler, driving force behind The Antiboy Project collaboration
“Harry’s vision of the world is completely aligned with Phluid’s vision of the world. We were unified in creating a space to exist between the binaries. And, to create a product that will benefit The Hetrick Martin Institute, an organization that is very dear to me, and encourages youth to live their authentic selves was an honor.”Rob Smith, founder of The Phluid Project
Additionally, all participants were equally passionate about choosing to donate their efforts to benefit The Hendrick Martin Institute.
“HMI saves kids’ lives. The organization steps in to catch kids in crisis and helps them to not only survive but thrive via its wrap-around services including hot meals and showers, mental health counseling, advocacy and awareness building. Antiboy and the One Love project are incredible partners to create the awareness and acceptance our kids so desperately need. I wish they were around when I was a kid coming out!”Ben Dixon, HMI Board Member
