The iconic fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier has created a T-shirt to celebrate the Gay Games, which are set to be held in Paris this year. Available in both men and women styles, the T-shirt will be sold exclusively at BHV Marais, the famous department store facing Hôtel de Ville, between July 27 and August 4.
In addition to Jean Paul Gaultier’s T-shirt, which is set to retail for 59 euros, BVH Marais will offer a selection of products inspired by the event, including mugs, hats, sunglasses and teddy bears.
The Gay Games are a sports competition founded in San Francisco in 1982. Aiming to promote diversity and tolerance, the event is held every four years in a different country, similarly to the Olympics. Paris will be hosting the 10th edition of the event, which is set to take place between August 4-12. More than 15,000 participants from 70 countries will be competing in 36 sports, including cycling, boxing, football and handball.
