Queer Fashion Brand Daddy Couture Expands for Pride




Queer fashion brand Daddy Couture has refreshed its clothing line just in time for Pride season, incorporating additional products and designs for its community. The company has a popular line of LGBTQ clothing and has built a strong fan following in the gay community.

They have a wide range of clothing products, including shirts, undies, caps, hoodies, and much more. The whole idea behind this company’s foundation is that anyone can be a Daddy. Daddy Couture believes that to be a Daddy, you don’t have to be sexually oriented towards anything. Regardless of your gender, age, or sexual liking, you can be a Daddy. And the company’s present clothing line totally reflects upon this fact, now with Pride designs.

The tagline of the company, “Unleash your Inner Daddy”, is resonating well within the LGBTQ community, which has led to the popularity of several Daddy Couture products all across the world.

The company talks about itself and their product ranges on its page, “A brand that’s difficult to define. Our style celebrates the kitsch, the wit and the buoyant. A spirited approach to the armor we put on our bodies. A new form of language. A sort of fashion nirvana. We’re in on the gag.”

Popular gay icons like Chris Crocker, Tiffany Pollard, Jake Bass and several more have joined hands with Daddy Couture to promote its clothing line through Instagram. Such promotions have further led to the popularity of the company and helped in extending its outreach to far away places.

With its Instagram page, the company has done a good job. The posts are updated only when something major is going on, or when the models are promoting the products. This has made sure that the feeds of their followers are not filled with their posts all the time. Such an act has also been appreciated by everyone and is likely responsible for their growth.

The theme of Daddy Couture resonates with a very niche community. And with its clothing line, the company has done a fabulous job. It takes really strong efforts to work around such a niche and making it popular. The refreshed clothing line of Daddy Couture has further enhanced its efforts to reach its target audience. Daddy Couture is one of the many digitally native brands we have our eyes on in 2019.

Turning Tragedy into Triumph Through Walking With Anthony




On the morning of February 6, 2010, Anthony Purcell took a moment to admire the churning surf before plunging into the waves off Miami Beach. Though he had made the dive numerous times before, that morning was destined to be different when he crashed into a hidden sandbar, sustaining bruises to his C5 and C6 vertebrae and breaking his neck.

“I was completely submerged and unable to rise to the surface,” Purcell recalls. “Fortunately, my cousin Bernie saw what was happening and came to my rescue. He saved my life, but things would never be the same after that dive.”

Like thousands of others who are confronted with a spinal cord injury (SCI), Purcell plunged headlong into long months of hopelessness and despair. Eventually, however, he learned to turn personal tragedy into triumph as he reached out to fellow SCI victims by launching Walking With Anthony.

Living with SCI: the first dark days

Initial rehabilitation for those with SCIs takes an average of three to six months, during which time they must relearn hundreds of fundamental skills and adjust to what feels like an entirely new body. Unfortunately, after 21 days, Purcell’s insurance stopped paying for this essential treatment, even though he had made only minimal improvement in such a short time.

“Insurance companies cover rehab costs for people with back injuries, but not for people with spinal cord injuries,” explains Purcell. “We were practically thrown to the curb. At that time, I was so immobile that I couldn’t even raise my arms to feed myself.”

Instead of giving up, Purcell’s mother chose to battle his SCI with long-term rehab. She enrolled Purcell in Project Walk, a rehabilitation facility located in Carlsbad, California, but one that came with an annual cost of over $100,000.

“My parents paid for rehabilitation treatment for over three years,” says Purcell. “Throughout that time, they taught me the importance of patience, compassion, and unconditional love.”

Yet despite his family’s support, Purcell still struggled. “Those were dark days when I couldn’t bring myself to accept the bleak prognosis ahead of me,” he says. “I faced life in a wheelchair and the never-ending struggle for healthcare access, coverage, and advocacy. I hit my share of low points, and there were times when I seriously contemplated giving up on life altogether.”

Purcell finds a new purpose in helping others with SCIs

After long months of depression and self-doubt, Purcell’s mother determined it was time for her son to find purpose beyond rehabilitation.

“My mom suggested I start Walking With Anthony to show people with spinal cord injuries that they were not alone,” Purcell remarks. “When I began to focus on other people besides myself, I realized that people all around the world with spinal cord injuries were suffering because of restrictions on coverage and healthcare access. The question that plagued me most was, ‘What about the people with spinal cord injuries who cannot afford the cost of rehabilitation?’ I had no idea how they were managing.”

Purcell and his mother knew they wanted to make a difference for other people with SCIs, starting with the creation of grants to help cover essentials like assistive technology and emergency finances. To date, they have helped over 100 SCI patients get back on their feet after suffering a similar life-altering accident.

Purcell demonstrates the power and necessity of rehab for people with SCIs

After targeted rehab, Purcell’s physical and mental health improved drastically. Today, he is able to care for himself, drive his own car, and has even returned to work.

“Thanks to my family’s financial and emotional support, I am making amazing physical improvement,” Purcell comments. “I mustered the strength to rebuild my life and even found the nerve to message Karen, a high school classmate I’d always had a thing for. We reconnected, our friendship evolved into love, and we tied the knot in 2017.”

After all that, Purcell found the drive to push toward one further personal triumph. He married but did not believe a family was in his future. Regardless of his remarkable progress, physicians told him biological children were not an option.

Despite being paralyzed from the chest down, Purcell continued to look for hope. Finally, Dr. Jesse Mills of UCLA Health’s Male Reproductive Medicine department assured Purcell and his wife that the right medical care and in vitro fertilization could make their dream of becoming parents a reality.

“Payton joined our family in the spring of 2023,” Purcell reports. “For so long, I believed my spinal cord injury had taken everything I cared about, but now I am grateful every day. I work to help other people with spinal cord injuries find the same joy and hope. We provide them with access to specialists, funding to pay for innovative treatments, and the desire to move forward with a focus on the future.”
