Flamer Unisex Tee

The Flamer Tee from the Retrograph reclaims a word historically used against the LGBTQ+ community



Size Guide

Words only possess the power we give them. Let’s reclaim our language and reclaim our power. The Flamer Unisex Tee features a slur historically used against the LGBTQ+ community. It’s time to wear these labels with pride and take charge of the discourse.


Like the chicken and the egg, word historians can’t agree on whether “flaming” or “flamer” came first. In early 20th century slang, the word “flaming” was used as a mild swear. . . almost like “frigging.” It implied that something was flagrantly obvious or attention seeking. Over time the adjective (or perhaps the noun version first) connected with gay or effeminate men, leaning into the stereotype of the flamboyant, exaggerated gay male.
