Get your “Lesbians Love Boies” t-shirt


By Julia Rosen

David Boies became a hero around these parts for his thorough embarrassing of both Dr. Kenneth Miller and David Blankenhorn during his epic cross-examinations. One of our regular Trial Trackers in the comments, the poster formerly known as Barb, even changed her username to “Lesbians Love Boies”.

We loved that phrase so much that we made it into a t-shirt. It’s available on Skreend, with a portion of the proceeds going to benefit the Courage Campaign. Think of Skreened as a more ethical Cafepress that prints all of their gear on American Apparel. So all of you gay boys can buy one too and fit your gym bodies. Or if you haven’t been to the gym in a while, there are some sweet hoodies and tote bags available.

If you are wearing one and ever run into David Boies, please do take a picture of the two of you together. We’d love to post it.

[UPDATE] You asked for it in the comments and you got it. “Boys <3 Boies" is now available for purchase!

    Haha! Seriously Ronnie! That would have been a great shirt! Bought one ornmyself anyway- will make some eye brows raise and hopefully spark conversation here in Utah!
    Great choice of a shop too Julia-

  • 4. Ronnie  |  January 27, 2010 at 11:41 am

    On the website you can make one that says Boys <3 Boies I believe….so I will most def get that one….

    but I'll rock the lesbian one also

  • 5. Andrew  |  January 27, 2010 at 6:26 pm

    I agree. The lesbian version is admittedly the more clever one, but I think the boys one will work well too :).

  • 6. Brian O Donoghue  |  January 28, 2010 at 10:13 am

    excellent !!

  • 7. Dave in Maine  |  January 27, 2010 at 11:04 am

    What makes Skreend "a more ethical Cafepress"?

  • 8. couragecampaign  |  January 27, 2010 at 11:14 am

    Hey Dave,

    For a couple reasons.

    1) American Apparel vs. overseas sweatshops
    2) Very eco-conscious
    3) 10% of their profits go to which does microlending to 3rd world countries
    4) They pay their staff a living wage

    Read more here:

    We did a bunch of research on them last year before using them for our other t-shirt needs.


  • 9. Linda  |  January 27, 2010 at 11:53 am


    Now, any chance of getting "GOOD GOD, MAN!"
    bumper stickers???

  • 10. textor44  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:05 pm

    Or a T-Shirt with an artist's rendition of him saying that to Miller. Because that would be totally awesome.

  • 11. Erin  |  January 27, 2010 at 10:06 pm

    I'd definitely buy that. Where are those court cartoonists?

  • 12. Slade  |  January 28, 2010 at 2:02 am

    You're going to make me open up my Illustrator in a second lol

  • 13. Linda  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    I want a bumper sticker! Sort of 'our secret code' thing, you know? Like the fish with the Christians? I think it would be cool to by driving down the freeway, and see that bumper sticker on someone else's car.

    A bit of solidarity.

    Put it on both a bumper sticker and t-shirt!

  • 14. Andrea  |  January 27, 2010 at 1:17 pm


  • 15. Richard  |  January 29, 2010 at 1:12 am

    How about a rainbow-colored version of each state's animal? Like the Equality teams have the Rainbow Bear for California? Why not a rainbow of each animal. Actually, since the black bear is the state animal for West Virginia (I grew up in West Virginia, so trust me on this one) that means that we have at least two states that could be represented by the rainbow bear. Wait! I'll check out the complete list of animals for each state and send the list to my Equality Team Field agent! Anthony will know who to take the list to so that Skreend can do thebumper stickers and decals! Maybe even car magnets so that we can take them with us when we trade our cars! Great idea, Linda! You ROCK!

  • 16. Derrick  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:08 pm

    What about one that says "I love Boies" for the guys?

  • 17. Charles  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:22 pm

    Oh yes, this one I would buy!!

  • 18. Jeff jones  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:14 pm

    How about simply I heart boies?

  • 19. Ronnie  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:15 pm

    He said it!!!!!!!! Obama Said it!!!!!

    The Bigots are DONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • 20. Lesbians Love Boies  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    Ronnie, I saw this post and went and got my t-shirts, and I am sure I missed it (with the exception that I did see him scold scotus).

  • 21. Ronnie  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:32 pm

    DADT is going DOWN!!!!!!!!

  • 22. Lesbians Love Boies  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:34 pm

    sweet, I missed it…dang. But the scotus scolding by obama was gooooood. corporations who wanted to buy legislation might be unhappy today.)

  • 23. Ronnie  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:41 pm

    Yeah I had to explain that one to my mother because she didn't know about it.

  • 24. Happy  |  January 28, 2010 at 1:11 am

    Hey Barb/LLB

    Throw a little cred Happy's way, will ya? I'm pretty sure I came up with that idea/slogan! LOL

  • 25. Lesbians Love Boies  |  January 28, 2010 at 11:31 am

    Oh, it was totally you Happy. I remember that. You were boies boies boies HAPPY!!!

    Did you order your shirt? Mine has shipped. I am so stoked! Can't wait to wear it!

  • 26. Happy  |  January 29, 2010 at 1:05 am

    Thanks for the props, LLB. Haven't made it over to order the shirt yet, but today is pay day!! I'm so there! LOL 🙂

    Yes, this Lesbian Loves Boies!

    I swear I could almost fake straight for this guy. Thank God (for ALL our sakes) he already has a wife! And a cool one at that. I love that she ordered some of these shirts. (see comments below)


  • 27. Charles  |  January 27, 2010 at 1:22 pm

    He said he was "going to work with the congress".

    If he really wanted, he could repeal DADT all on his own, seeing as he's the president and thus the commander-in-chief of the United States armed forces. If he had wanted, he could have frozen the effects of the policy at least until they talked about it or something. Also, he didn't have to support DOMA, or freeze the measure giving federal employees equal rights (for partners).

    I'll believe anything when I see it. For now concerning LGBT issues, Obama has been a complete and utter let down. He can talk the talk but hasn't proved he could walk the walk yet.

  • 28. Ronnie  |  January 27, 2010 at 1:52 pm

    However the mere fact that he mentioned brings attention to we are Americans too….although he is not saying the exact words because he is a politician….he is saying we are all equal or we should all be equal….DADT goes down the rest will follow!

  • 29. Ozymandias  |  January 27, 2010 at 3:49 pm

    I am really, REALLY hoping he follows through on this… just saw Rachel Maddow's show and she talked to Lieutenant-Colonel Victor Frederach, a 19-year combat veteran who's 'under review' of discharge under DADT. Read this guy's combat record – it never ceases to piss me off that the military can boot decorated vets like this, while whining about 'being stretched thin'…

  • 30. Andrew  |  January 29, 2010 at 2:57 am

    Sure he *could* have suspended DADT, but it would have been very bad strategy. Why? Because if he did that, any future president could start it right back up again just as easily. And if it's suspended, it takes the pressure off of congress to repeal the damn thing for good.

  • 31. Lesbians Love Boies  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:25 pm

    woohooooooo. can't wait, I bought two, but think I might need nightshirts too (and a new computer bag). BTW, shipping is really cheap at Skreeend. Please doubly thank them for that.

    I also agree, 'Boys Love Boies' and 'I love Boies' is great too.

  • 32. Maia Dee  |  January 27, 2010 at 2:25 pm

    LLB…I adore you!!! So happy you were here to start that. You know I love ya girl…and we miss you much! We'll be there to see ya soon and in the mean time, keep up the good fight girlfriend!.

  • 33. Maia Dee  |  January 27, 2010 at 2:43 pm

    Barb, I am inspired. The following is what I just posted to my Facebook minus the link:

    “Lesbians Love Boies”

    I love this!!! For those of you that don't know….Mr. Boies (of Gore v Bush, yes, THAT Mr. Boise) is lead counsel of the challenge to the federal constitutionality of CA's Prop 8. A dear friend of mine inspired this t-shirt….you can buy it and support the move for marriage equality at the fo…llowing link.

    OK…I know I'm one of the few that actually want the t-shirt…but please take a moment to think about the fact the very validity of my marriage is actually and literally on trial here. I'm not asking you to buy a damn shirt, but I am asking for a token show of support of what is on trial here…committed love between two people. Who can show a reasonable objection to my marriage???

  • 34. Rick Heintz  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:27 pm

    What about us Bears? Maybe a Bears Love Bioes? 🙂

  • 35. Phil  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:28 pm

    I'd buy one :-{)}

  • 36. Lesbians Love Boies  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:37 pm

    now that's a great bear's smiley sign!

  • 37. Ronnie  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:38 pm

    How about:

    1.Bottom Boies
    3. Boies Hunt
    4. Tops <3 Boies
    5. Gay College Boies

  • 38. Charles  |  January 27, 2010 at 1:23 pm

    I don't like them because I think they're too sexual and disrespectful.

    "I love Boies" is just a funny play on word. Anything further than that is disrespectful methinks.

  • 39. Pause and think  |  January 28, 2010 at 11:14 am

    5 incredibly, horrifyingly, astoundingly, nauseatingly bad ideas — conjuring up porn and exploitation of youth — incredibly off-message. So bad, and even offensive, that I hope the moderator removes comment #35 and its replies.

  • 40. Ronnie  |  January 29, 2010 at 8:34 am

    I don't know if anybody noticed that I was joking about those t-shirt ideas…..I mean they are great club wear shirts but I would never wear them in public…except for the Gay college Boies one because that is an actual name of a dance group I was apart of….I don't know if any of you know it, Gay College Party.

    I am sorry if I offended anybody, That wasn't me intent.

  • 41. Paula  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:33 pm

    sounds like cafepress isn't as socially conscious, but i do really love a shirt a liberal christian friend of mine bought me from there for christmas… i wore it out to christmas brunch and got a lot of compliments 🙂

    the trial has motivated me to wear it a lot of the past couple weeks, particularly on the days they keep harping on about religious traditions…

  • 42. Zander  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:35 pm

    I would definitely buy a "Bears love Bioes" t-shirt : D

  • 43. Sinnerviewer  |  January 27, 2010 at 12:49 pm

    Someone PLEASE buy one for me! That shirt ROCKS MY FACE – just like Boies

  • 44. Mary Boies  |  January 27, 2010 at 2:57 pm

    This support is greatly appreciated. I'm buying a batch for all the Boies Girls (there are many of us)
    Mary, his loving wife

  • 45. Desert Verdin 1 of 1  |  January 27, 2010 at 3:06 pm

    Most excellent!

  • 46. Happy  |  January 28, 2010 at 1:13 am

    Rock on Mary (and DAVID) Boies! 🙂

  • 47. Happy  |  January 28, 2010 at 1:13 am

    Rock On Mary Boies! 🙂

  • 48. Richard  |  January 29, 2010 at 1:21 am

    Mary Boies, I have a request for you. Would you please tell your entire family, not just David, that you are heroes for this 47-year-old gay man in Hope Mills, North Carolina, who is looking for the day that we are all equal? Between your husband's efforts in California on our behalf, your support of his efforts as his family, and the courage of everyone here on this site and so many others, we now have an Equality Team in North Carolina, and I have had nothing but positive responses since I posted a status update on my Facebook page. I was already out i real life, but everyone associated with this trial helped me emerge from my Facebook shell and drop the last cover. And for that, I want to thank ALL OF YOU!

  • 49. Happy  |  January 29, 2010 at 2:51 am

    Richard, YOU ROCK! I can't imagine what it must be like to be a gay man in North Carolina, but I do know the fear and hesitation associated with coming out, as we all probably do here on this site. Stay strong, daddy-o.

    You da MAN! 🙂

    Love, the WOMAN –
    Happy 🙂

  • 50. Richard  |  January 29, 2010 at 4:00 am

    Thank you, Happy! YOU ALSO ROCK!! And it is difficult here, especially being in a military town (I live right outside Fayetteville, home to Ft. Bragg). the hardest part is the lck of unity because so many here feel the need to be on the DL. And your board name here fits the way my life is now. I have a wonderful husband and mother-in-law, two fantastic adult stepchildren (both hetero) five fabulous grandchildren, three adorable dogs (two of whom are in a lesbian iterbreed marriage) and the best extended family a man or woman could hope for. Now, all I really want is to be able to get married and have that marriage recognized everywhere I go i this country, not just in a few select states and localities. Not "civil union" (what, I'm a steelworker trying to get better pay and safer working conditions!?!), not "domestic partnership (You're telling me that my move for my husband is nothing more than a business arrangement!?!), but marriage! And our fight has only begun! Let's all join the P8TT group on FaceBook and stay in touch. I truly do not want to lose my new-found family and community!

  • 51. fiona64  |  January 29, 2010 at 4:09 am

    PS to Richard: I am on the P8TT page; look for me there and let me know who you are so that I can add my new big brother to my friends list (my initials are SC).

  • 53. Richard  |  January 29, 2010 at 4:12 am

  • 54. kathy  |  January 27, 2010 at 3:50 pm

    How about a <3 Boies for the straights? I want one!!!

  • 55. Happy  |  January 28, 2010 at 1:22 am

    A simple I <3 Boys would do for our straight supporters, I think.

  • 56. Linda  |  January 28, 2010 at 2:56 am

    How about 'Girls <3 Boies' 🙂

  • 57. Bonnie Margay  |  January 28, 2010 at 6:53 am

    I prefer Grrrls ♥ Boies!

  • 58. rebeccargb  |  January 27, 2010 at 6:23 pm

  • 60. dave  |  January 28, 2010 at 12:20 am

    Hope Olsen doesn't get jealous! :-0

  • 61. frank  |  January 28, 2010 at 12:44 am

    Maybe I missed it….did Olsen even participate in court? I just remember Boies and a couple of the other attorneys….

  • 62. cubeslave  |  January 28, 2010 at 1:05 am

    I believe Olsen did opening argument, and perhaps closing too, would be my guess.

  • 63. Linda  |  January 28, 2010 at 2:59 am

    I'm sure Olsen was an integral part of the team, absolutely no doubt about that.

  • 64. Lawrence  |  January 28, 2010 at 4:04 am

    Olson did the opening statement and I would expect him to close. Many of the other lawyers, like Boutrous, are from his firm and I expect many "younger colleagues" doing hours and days of research are from his firm too. Plus Olson has written great articles out there and will be essential at appeal and SCOTUS if/when. They are smart and using the right people where it counts.

  • 65. cubeslave  |  January 28, 2010 at 1:04 am

    This is fabulous! Just ordered one for me and one for my girlfriend!

  • 66. CGS  |  January 28, 2010 at 1:18 am

    Bi's Love Boies! There you go! 🙂

  • 72. Devon  |  January 28, 2010 at 1:16 pm

    This is AMAZING! I can't wait to get my "Boys love Boies" Shirt!

  • 73. Richard  |  January 29, 2010 at 1:25 am

    And this one is for Barb/Lesbians Love Boies!
    Lady (and I do mean LADY in the finest sense of the word),
    YOU ROCK! You are one of the many who have made me feel like family here, and it is because of everyone here on this site that I have been able to grow so much these past few weeks. Let us all remain connected, either through this site or the P8TT FB page, and let us all remember that this fight is only beginning. Let us all reinforce oe another's strength and determination to see the fulfillment of Equality for ALL! You Go, Lady!

  • 74. Mary Boies  |  January 29, 2010 at 6:05 am

    Richard, I conveyed your kind message to David and the family. The Boies family is large and diverse, including the far right, the far left, a Christian missionary, lawyers, a statistician and every kind in between. We all love David, and it makes us SO happy to hear when people appreciate his work. He loved this trial — we can always tell when his heart is really in it, not just his great mind. His heart is in this one, that is for sure.
    I ordered and anxiously await the arrival of T shirts.
    his loving wife, Mary

  • 75. Tara  |  January 30, 2010 at 5:23 am

    We need a "Bi's <3 Boies"!!

  • 76. clubwear  |  January 6, 2012 at 3:20 am

    The music in nightclubs is either live bands or, more commonly, a mix of songs played by a DJ through a powerful PA system. Most clubs or club nights cater to certain music genres, such as techno, house music, trance, heavy metal, garage, hip hop, salsa, dancehall, Drum and Bass, Dubstep or soca music. Many clubs also promote playing the Top 40 which has most of the night playing the most broadcast songs of the previous week.
