Our team at Tragic Beautiful has watched (& taken part in) the developing global civil uprising against systemic and generational racism. Here in Australia, we have added our voice to the growing number of individuals and businesses who say FUCK RACISM and call for an end to the unjust treatment of Indigenous Australians, First Nations peoples, and all POC in our country. We want to live in a world that celebrates cultural diversity and that treats all people with respect, empathy and trust.
It's time for change.
To this end, we are supporting two amazing causes through the sale of a FUCK RACISM t-shirt and hoodie. 100% of proceeds from sales will be split between:
A national advocacy platform for Aboriginal and Torrest Strait Islander Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Queer, Transgender and Intersex (LGBQTI) peoples. As well as advocacy, Black Rainbow offers a range of resources and practical help to this community, including: community micro-grants to assist with hosting Indigenous LGBQTI community events, pre-paid phones with data to members of the community who may be homeless, leaving a domestic violence relationship or victims of the justice system, and amplifying the voices of people in this community through partnership with IndigenousX.

In Western Australia, people with no criminal convictions can be imprisoned if they are unable to pay their fines. This law disproportionately affects single Aboriginal mothers, and the response of imprisonment to poverty and homelessness is unjust. Additionally, more fees, fines and charges are arbitrarily added to the original fine amount, putting many women into the position of never being able to free themselves and remain separated from their children. Thanks to the many voices amplifying this issue over recent months, the WA government is gearing up to debate whether to scrap this legislation. In the meantime, Sisters Inside is raising funds to pay the fines, free women from prison and vacate outstanding warrants.
