It's like they say, "Sour Fuck Boys--First They're Sweet, Then They're Sour AF," and they say it in big white letters over a candy wrapper print bag. This shoulder bag has a top zip closure, woven silver chain strap, and gummi guys all over. ($38

Adam's Nest is unapologetically gay and absolutely political. And their Shoot Loads Not Guns trucker mesh snapback hat (in a variety of common, colors like hunter orange) donates to Gays Against Guns to help fight for sensible and meaningful gun reform. Plus, buy any of their other shirts and accessories, and the proceeds are donated to nonprofits such as Rainbow Railroad and Ali Hornet Center. ($35
