Washington - The Human Rights Campaign - the nation's largest lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) - civil rights organization is unveiling its latest collaboration with Kenneth Cole, a highly esteemed designer and longtime activist to raise awareness about the repeal of "Don't Ask, Don't Tell."

The U.S. House of Representatives voted last month to repeal "Don't Ask, Don't Tell." This historic vote followed a successful vote in the Senate Armed Services Committee. The issue will now move to the full Senate floor sometime this summer. The Human Rights Campaign has launched a national campaign to organize veterans, generate media coverage and target key states that will be critical to repeal the discriminatory law.

The limited edition T-shirt will be sold at Kenneth Cole stores nationwide as well as Kennethcole.com and hrc.org. The shirt retails for $35.00 with 100% of net proceeds going to the AWEARNESS FUND and HRC. Constructed of a unique eco-friendly fabric and knitted imperfectly to create a vintage look, this t-shirt is available in unisex sizes XS-XXL in gray. It is the latest designer collaboration exclusively for HRC.

Previous designs have been released by Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, Kenneth Cole, Alex & Chloe, Christian Siriano, Heatherette, Nike and American Apparel. HRC Shops are located in San Francisco, CA Provincetown, MA and Washington, D.C. To order online, visit http://www.hrc.org/shop

The Human Rights Campaign Foundation is America's largest civil rights organization working to achieve gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender equality. By inspiring and engaging all Americans, HRC strives to end discrimination against GLBT citizens and realize a nation that achieves fundamental fairness and equality for all.
