We are excited to announce a limited edition bowtie honoring the fame of Marlon Bundo, aka Bunny of the United States (BOTUS) launching on March 19th. The design follows the viral success of the children’s book Last Week Tonight with John Oliver Presents a Day in the Life of Marlon Bundo, which details a fictional story of the Vice President’s real-life pet having a same sex romance with another rabbit. The Marlon Bundo bow tie will be available exclusively online and in-store (Boston, Chicago, DC, New York, Philly) at The Tie Bar, with $20 of every $25 purchase being donated directly back to Tie The Knot.
Drawing inspiration directly from Marlon’s illustrations, the bowtie design is both formal and whimsical, perfect for anyone looking to make a political statement while “hopping” out on the town. The end result is an abstract multi-colored dot print that’s playful and fun, but also never forgets the importance of the ongoing equality battle it conveys.
Proceeds from the Marlin Bundo bow tie will benefit The Trevor Project and Aids United!
Founded in 1998 by the creators of the Academy Award®-winning short film TREVOR, The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.
AIDS United’s history began with the founding of the National AIDS Fund in 1988. For more than two decades, they have supported community-driven responses to the HIV epidemic around the country that reach the nation’s most disproportionately affected populations, including gay and bisexual men, communities of color, women, people living in the deep South and people living with HIV/AIDS
