It’s almost Pride Month, and we’re rolling out the rainbow carpet a little early to announce a new shirt in the GitHub Shop, inspired by the LGBTQ tech community. After two years of donating proceeds from Pridetocat and Transtocat shirts to organizations that empower LGBTQ community members, we’re changing up the design and going bigger (and global) with our donations.
With the new shirt design, you’ll always have your heart on your sleeve and your git chart proudly on your chest. Whether you’re wearing it to parade day or a coffee run, it’s the perfect way to add some color with a side of code. Get one while you can—they’ll be in the Shop until September 30.
