Tatty Devine Pansy Power

As the old adage goes, never judge a book by its cover, or in this case a brooch by the flower. This is no ordinary floral brooch, look closer and you will see this 'Queer Boy' brooch is in fact sending out a very serious message about homophobia. These limited edition brooches have been designed and individually hand painted by artist Paul Harfleet of The Pansy Project, in collaboration with the lovely folks at Tatty Devine.

Through The Pansy Project, Paul highlights the widespread occurrence of homophobic abuse that still prevails in our society by planting and photographing a solitary unmarked pansy at the site of homophobic attacks. An exhibition of Paul's photography is also being shown in the Tatty Devine Brick Lane shop.

The brooches cost £45 each and all proceeds will go to support the continued work of The Pansy Project. So plant your pansy brooch firmly on your lapel and show your support.
