Join the weeklong celebration and experience the fusion of fashion and queer culture at The AllTogether Clubhouse.


It’s time to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and go back to our roots with what we’re wearing. Now more than ever, the LGBTQ+ community needs to express the pride they have in themselves and their unapologetic queerness for everyone to see. Luckily, Diesel and Tom of Finland Foundation have partnered again following last year’s successful collaboration to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community with an unapologetic Pride collection that amplifies their message of freedom of expression, sexuality and individualism.

The new collection is designed for all genders and features a new set of artists that represent the historical impact of New York City’s Gay and Queer culture and nightlife. Their photographs are applied as prints or patchworks on the collection’s pieces that range from T-shirts to denim to jockstraps. And to truly feel the artist’s inspiration, a quote from them is printed on a special canvas tape on each garment.

For a sneak peek, the collection contains a sheer, nude long-sleeved T-shirt with a print of documentarian Stanley Stellar of a Dada ball attendee smoking a cigarette. Another one of Stellar’s famous images include a Gay couple wearing T-shirts that say “His” and “His Also,” which is printed on a pair of 5 pocket jeans.

To see this Pride collection in person, Diesel is again partnering with The Community and Tom of Finland Foundation to present The AllTogether Clubhouse, a group exhibition and daily event program that lasts all week. Included in the week’s lineup includes an exhibition, panel discussions, a concert and a Pride 2023 party.

This exhibition is more than just clothes. Mixing New York’s past and present Queer histories, this exhibition features a multimedia expression of the LGBTQ+ community, presenting historical artifacts and documentation of Queer NYC scenes like Stompers and the Piers. Also included is an archival publication of S.T.H. (aka Straight to Hell or The Manhattan Review of Unnatural Acts), the influential Gay and erotic non-fiction zine created by Boyd McDonald.
