The screeching brakes of the auto-rickshaw let me know that I’d arrived at my destination. It was my first day of college. I couldn’t believe I was pursuing my Masters of Law degree – this was my dream. And it was finally coming true.

I made my way into the building, to fill out my registration form. As I began to jot down my details, I paused as I approached the gender section. I had been presented with only two options – male and female. That realisation compelled me to pause and contemplate – why were there no check boxes for us, people who occupy the space between male and female? Overwhelmed with emotion, I crumpled up the form and shoved it into my bag, out of my sight.

My first class for the day was on social transformation. We were debating sexuality. The professor had divided the class into two groups: to represent males and females. He asked me to join in. But which side did I belong to? The one I was born with, or the one I identified with? I took my place in the middle and said, “Something as complex as gender can never be binary. I stand for everyone who refuses to be contained by these narrow definitions. I complete myself. The spectrum will only be complete when every side finds a place.”

Later that day, I marked out a new check box and titled it ‘other’. Ticking it, I knew I had begun a journey of personal and institutional transformation.

This tee-shirt features a powerful illustration that echoes the sentiment of everyone finding their place under the rainbow. The material is 100 per cent recycled, with 40 per cent being recycled from waste plastic bottles and 60 per cent from cotton textile waste.

These statement tee-shirts are made of 100 per cent recycled fabric – 40 per cent is recycled from waste plastic bottles and 60 per cent from cotton textile waste. The plastic bottles are shredded into chips, which are then melted to extract polyester. The pre-consumer textile waste from mills is repurposed by separating the cotton scraps by colour. The scraps are then converted into recycled cotton fibre. Both these fibres are fused together to create a fibre that’s 100 per cent recycled. The fibre is spun into yarn, which is then woven into fabric.
