Walt & Pete is brand that celebrates gay and bi queer history. " Our Love, Our Story, Our History." We show reverence to many of the gay and bi men that have historically changed the world. From Michelangelo, Alexander von Humboldt, Alan Turing and more. We enshrine our discos and night clubs that fully supported the equal rights movement and provided need and comfort during the AIDS Crisis. The vintage collection is a growing archive of salvaged photos of “affectionate men”. Each has been restored and colorized. Each image has a story, including its survival. Our history is constantly being erased. Proudly display this swag; the more people see images like these, the more it breaks social barriers and stereotypes.

 Walt & Pete provides products that encompass male relationships. However they are, either sexual or not. This collection is devoted to Walt Whitman & Peter Doyle. It's' to promote the love and success that have always existed in our community.

It’s dedicated to the men who were brave enough to take risks, to challenge the status quo, and to push the boundaries of what was possible. It’s dedicated to those who had the courage to stand up and fight for what they believed in, even when it was unpopular or dangerous. It’s dedicated to the men who dared to dream, and to those who had the strength to make their dreams a reality. It’s dedicated to the men who helped shape the world we live in today, and to the generations of men who will continue to do so in the future. It’s dedicated to the unsung heroes of our past, present, and future.

"You've always been in good company."
