“Putting the life back into the lifestyle”
Eyegasmic is a proud supporter of LGBTQ initiatives that promote a healthier quality of life for members of the community. The margin of inequality experienced by gay men is astonishing and will not be eradicated without the help of people like us who understand the deep restraints of discrimination and systemic oppression. That is why a portion of sales are attributed to The Good Judy organization. We want to do more than just dress the sexy men of the world, but care about their total wellbeing – this is just the start of something so much bigger than any of us.
The Good Judy Project MISSION
The mission is to empower LGBTQ people of color to lead full and rewarding lives without limits by providing the highest quality educational, cultural, and wellness content, campaigns & events. Our goal is to assist them to make a smooth transition to self-sufficiency and to prevent long-term dependency on social services.
