Looking to make a unique impression on Fire Island (or on Ninth Avenue) this summer? Local menswear retailer Nasty Pig has you (semi) covered with its "Shred of Hope" project—and it's for a good cause! In honor of Pride Month, the purveyor of sexy streetwear worked with notable LGBT advocates to create one-of-a-kind shirts (think of them as deconstructed tees), all of which will be auctioned off to benefit the Ali Forney Center. Participating amateur designers include musicians Michael Stipe and members of the Scissor Sisters, actors Ally Sheedy and Alan Cumming, and Ali Forney Center founder Carl Siciliano. The tops go on the block on June 20, so spend some time picking your favorite from the images above, then head to shredofhope.com to view even more shredders and place a bid. For more information, check out this video about the project:
