If you've ever thought the rainbow patch could use a 21st century makeover, you weren't alone. Revel & Riot is a new company whose aim is to "promote LGBTQ rights, awareness and equality through new media, graphics, writing, and products on the internet." Their tees, posters, and buttons with sharp designs and reappropriated statements ("God Hates Bags", "Gay is Good", "Ask. Tell.") are awesome and a great way to show your politics while looking good. by Dykes to Watch Out For and Fun Home author Alison Bechdel has even given a shout-out to them!

They're more than a merchandise one-stop though. They provide news (neatly broken into "revel" and "riot" categories), resources (including trans health, community organizations, and suicide prevention), a brief history of LGBT art and symbolism, and a portal to Amazon for LGBTQ books and DVDs.
Check 'em out for new designs and presents for the chic queers and allies in your life!
