Lin-Manuel Miranda, scribe and star of the Tony Award-winning Broadway sensation Hamilton has launched merchandising platform Tee-Rico to raise money for victims of Sunday’s Orlando, Florida mass shooting at a gay nightclub.
The site, partnered with Broadway Cares, will help fund Equality Cares in Florida and their “tireless efforts to secure equality and justice for Florida’s LGBT community.” Miranda promises the site will feature “amazing artist-provided designs” for fans to purchase. For now, only one T-shirt is available, inspired by Miranda’s moving “Love is Love” sonnet at the Tony Awards. See it below:
The T-shirt, on sale for $29 here, was designed by artist Jessica Sporn and printed by Nightsweats & T-Cells. Miranda also urged fans to donate directly to a GoFundMe account set up for Orlando victims.
