STORY

WILLIENORRISWORKSHOP has partnered with Planned Parenthood of Greater New York to

release a collaborative t-shirt.


For this collaboration, designer Willie Norris looked to one of his signature WNWS t-shirts

reading “WHAT EXACTLY IS HETEROSEXUALITY AND WHAT CAUSES IT?” Instead of

offering up a sardonic inquiry into heterosexuality, the front of the WNWS x Planned Parenthood

shirt cheekily reads, “WHAT EXACTLY IS PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND WHAT CAUSES

IT?” In keeping with Norris’s signature design, the back of the t-shirt offers up a long-form

explanation to the question posed by the front.


With this shirt, Norris utilizes his signature confrontational aesthetic to bring attention to Planned

Parenthood and the need for accessible sexual and reproductive education and healthcare as

part of a healthy and empowered life amidst a culture that shames and stigmatizes sex. With

this project it was Norris’s goal to earnestly promote Planned Parenthood’s full range of services

and resources.


Planned Parenthood of Greater New York (PPGNY) is a leading provider, educator, and

advocate of sexual and reproductive health care in New York State. PPGNY offers a wide range

of services at its 30 locations across 65% of NYS - including gynecological care, birth control,

cancer screenings, pregnancy testing, STI testing and treatment, HIV prevention, testing, and

counseling, transgender hormone therapy, abortion, and vasectomy. As a voice for reproductive

freedom, PPGNY supports legislation and policies that ensure all New Yorkers have access to

the full range of reproductive health services and education.


The full text on the back of the shirt is as follows:


"WHAT EXACTLY IS PLANNED PARENTHOOD AND WHAT CAUSES IT?"

Planned Parenthood of Greater New York (PPGNY) is a leading provider of sexual and reproductive health services and information, a fierce advocate, and a committed partner to advance equity and improve health outcomes for all. 

 

 WHAT CAUSES IT: 

A need for the education and health care necessary to lead a healthy and empowered life. A culture that shames and stigmatizes sex and sexuality. 

 

REPRODUCTIVE HEALTH CARE SERVICES:

We provide services people need to be healthy and powerful, including but not limited to abortion, birth control, testing and treatment for STIs, PEP, PrEP, wellness exams, cancer screenings, and gender-affirming hormone therapy.

 

MEDICALLY ACCURATE SEX EDUCATION PROGRAMS:

All people deserve access to the information needed to make healthy and informed decisions. PPGNY creates curricula, trains community members to be resources, and advocates at the legislative level to expand access to information about sexual health.


BUILDING HEALTHY COMMUNITIES:

PPGNY believes in treating the whole patient. That’s why we have social workers on staff, and are able to enroll our patients in health insurance on site. 


THE RIGHT TO CONTROL YOUR BODY:

You can’t control your destiny if you don’t control your body. PPGNY advocates for policies that expand access to sexual and reproductive health care and create a more just and equitable world for all. 


HEALTHY FUTURES:

 In a culture that diminishes young people’s voices and expertise, PPGNY engages young people to be leaders in our community. Our Youth Health Promoters lead workshops in schools, and create original social media content to empower the next generation of sexual health leaders. 


MEETING OUR PATIENTS WHERE THEY’RE AT:

Structural inequality means that getting to a health center is a huge barrier for some folks, so we go where our patients are. Our Project Street Beat program provides confidential, nonjudgmental health care, counseling and support to adults and young people who live and work on NYC’s streets.



CARE FOR ALL:

We see everyone who walks through our doors regardless of age, immigration status, or ability to pay, because we believe health care is a human right. Make your appointment at www.ppgreaterny.org




DETAILS 

 "WHAT EXACTLY IS PLANNED PARENTHOOD" is printed on front with our signature high-chest placement. The back is printed with text that brings attention to Planned Parenthood and the need for accessible sexual and reproductive education and healthcare as

part of a healthy and empowered life amidst a culture that shames and stigmatizes sex


Made in South Central, LA and hand silk-screened in Brooklyn, NYC by KINGSLAND PRINTING.


This tee has a heavy and sturdy feel with a generous, slightly boxy unisex fit and a ribbed, fitted neckline. It feels structured and does not feel "clingy" or "drapey" when you are wearing it. Due to the natural enzyme wash it has received, it has a broken-in feel like you would expect from a shirt that has been washed and worn for years


SIZING 


We recommend ordering "true-to-size." If you oscillate between two sizes, we recommend you size down (IE: if you generally describe youself as a "small medium," go with a small. If you describe yourself as a "true medium" or a "large medium" go with a medium). If you are looking for a slim, closer-to-the-body fit, you also might consider sizing down. We think it looks great, and hangs on your body correctly, whether worn tucked in or out or with the sleeves rolled up or left down.


Because this tee shirt is garment dyed, it is virutally shrink-free and will fit very similarly post-wash as it does when you first receive it.Do not size up to account for shrinkage you might usually encounter in a standard cotton tee shirt from regular machine washing and drying. 


If you are stuck on what size to order, we recommend that you measure a tee you already have (that you like the fit of!) and then compare those measurements to our measurements via the below link.





CARE


To best maintain the quality of the shirt, we recommend machine washing inside out on a gentle cycle in cold water, and tumble drying inside out on medium heat. Hand washing and air drying is also great. Dry cleaning is not recommended. Do not bleach (spot treatment is OK).
