Say it with us: When we say Anti-Normal, we mean “working to abolish conformity & ableism & mental health stigma.”

I was diagnosed with ADHD when I was 21 after a professor (who I didn’t have) told me that my incessant fidgeting was most likely a sign of something else. The Doctor prescribed me adderall, and I got a bottle of 28 pills right before I hopped on a plane to move to San Francisco to work in a group home for severely emotionally disturbed children ages 5 to 13. 

It was a rough transition to a new city. The combination of my diagnosis & working in the group home & not having close friends revealed just how precarious mental health is and how crucial it is to survival for myself, for the young folx in the home, for my colleagues. And I learned quickly that there isn’t one “normal” because each one of us has a unique way of experiencing and making meaning of this world. 

Since then, I have made a commitment to disrupting “normal,” & creating ways for those who so often get left out–disabled folx, neurodivergent folx, Queerdos–to feel included and like they belong

Product & Care Info

Queerly Complex selected Next Level 3600 t-shirts because of the way they fit our bodies and feel upon our skin. They end just below the waist, have fitted sleeves, and the body is straight with seams running down both sides. They are perfect for all kinds & sizes of bodies. PLUS! They are pre-shrunk 100% combed ring-spun cotton, so they are soft to the touch and get softer with each wash. 

Some washing & care instructions: 

  • Turn t-shirt inside out. 
  • Machine wash cold on the gentle cycle with mild detergent and similar colors.
  • Do not use bleach. 
  • Do not use fabric softeners.
  • Tumble dry low, or hang-dry for longest life.
  • Cool iron inside-out if necessary. Do not iron decoration.
  • Do not dry clean.
    Why Made on Demand
    After looking into numerous production processes, Queerly Complex chose Print-on-Demand because it allows us to not be wasteful and still provide a range of products. We tried out a variety of options, and settled on Printful as the source of our Print-on-Demand merch because as a company they are the most reliable with the highest quality printing. That’s why Queerly Complex merch costs just a bit more and may take a bit longer to get to you. Each and every item is printed just for you.

    The world is a much better place when we are free to be our full, gloriously, queer selves.
