“Debbie Dick!!” [t-shirt]

New York: np, [1985]. Screenprint. Size Large cotton t-shirt. Near fine, clean deadstock with no signs of wear. Item #6120

Created as a part of Haring’s safe sex series, the evocative persona of “Debbie Dick” appealed to AIDS activists, sex educators, and the gay community in juxtaposition to the more self-serious bureacratic AIDS-prevention designs and informational materials proliferating gay spaces in the mid-1980s.

Scarce shirt with a favorite design of Haring’s boundary-pushing safe sex series of designs and prints.
