TIE THE KNOT
Tie The Knot was founded to combine all of our favorite things: humor, style, individuality, fashion, art, and equality. Founded by Jesse Tyler Ferguson, the goal of Tie The Knot is clear: to advocate for LGBTQ civil rights throughout the United States & beyond, and to look damn good while doing it. Jesse started Tie The Knot in 2012 as a fun way to engage every American in the fight for marriage equality. Ever since marriage was won in 2015, Tie The Knot has shifted its focus to LGBTQ rights within the United States and marriage efforts across the globe.
It’s simple: we will release a collection of products seasonally - with some of our favorite fashion and design partners - inspired by our favorite art, fashion, and more. Eachproduct will be produced in limited quantity to inspire and promote uniqueness & individuality. Proceeds from the sales will go to various organizations that are in the trenches fighting for the civil rights of gay and lesbian individuals every single day, as well as to fund our international public education campaign to help continue to move the dial in support of LGBTQ equality.
As a part of our public education campaign, we will keep an active blog on our website which will keep you up-to-date on relevant news and LGBTQ equality developments across the globe - especially news regarding marriage equality in different countries.
Millions of people throughout the world are denied human rights just because of their identity. So come on, suit up, and Tie The Knot so that someday, we can ALL say “I do!”
WHY THE OWL?
Everyone knows that Owls symbolize wisdom but they are also a symbol of foresight, perspective and patience, which is something people fighting for LGBTQ equality must possess. Also, we think owls are cute.
