Heavy metal is a very accepting and warm community. People of all backgrounds, faiths, and genders are welcome in this scene. But some of us would like extra visibility. This is why we are happy to announce PRONOUN PATCHES.
Pronoun Patches offer the ease of having your pronouns literally on your sleeve, but with the cool aesthetic of heavy metal. Put your pronouns on your battle jacket, your bag, your sleeve, wherever you feel comfortable - and look great at the same time.
Art will be provided by the incredible non-binary artist Brannon Briggs and will come in three different styles - "She / Her", "He / Him", and "They / Them". The patches will be printed by the amazing folks at Blackoak Printing and will be white text screen printed on a rugged black canvas and will be approximately 11cm by 9cm.
Check out Brannon's rough mockups below along with some of the patches that Blackoak have done for us in the past.
Risks and challenges
We have chosen Kickstarter for Pronoun Patches so we can get the word out there. Gender acceptance is something we take very seriously at Blackened Death Records and teaming up with a non-binary artist to bring you these patches is something we feel very passionate about. Blackoak have always provided us great service as well, so we are confident this is going to be a GREAT match.
Initial funds pledged will pay the artist and the printer while netting us a baseline of 100 of each style of patch. The more people who pledge, the more patches we print - simple!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
