Cruising for Vintage-Inspired Queer Tees

Online shop features original merchandise inspired by Querelle & Cocteau

Dean, the Berlin artist behind Cruise Or Be Cruised, one of my favorite Tumblrs and a visual diary of gay underground subcultures, has started an Etsy shop with custom, handmade, limited-edition artwork and merchandise, including posters and t-shirts.

“T-shirts communicate our personal interests, politics, desires, loves and obsessions. When I see someone wearing a shirt from say, a band I love, I automatically feel a sense of connection with that person.”

Looking to bring a similar personal connection around alternative queer culture, Dean has created a line of t-shirts inspired by vintage art, film and literature. My favorite designs feature fluorescent hidden messages and visuals.
