6th annual pride collaboration with OUTSaskatoon
Each year since 2017 we have collaborated with OUTSaskatoon to release a design in support of Pride Home. We’re grateful for the opportunity to support this organization and proud that we’ve been able to donate more than $55,000.
As a result of these efforts, and donations from many other organizations and individuals, Pride Home is in a healthier financial position.
In 2022, OUTSaskatoon suggested that we redirect our donations to a fund that needs more of a boost; The Trans Care Fund.
The Trans Care Fund is a microgrant available to transgender, non-binary, and gender non-conforming community members who need financial assistance for gender-affirming care. Applicants can request funding for various needs, up to a maximum of $1500 per person. Some examples of what the fund can be used for include identification document change, gender-affirming care, gender-affirming surgeries, mileage to receive gender-affirming care/surgeries, gender-affirming gear, and more.
Hardpressed is excited to announce
that we were able to
Donate a total of $16,000
to the Trans Care Fund
from the proceeds of the 2022 Pride clothing collection.

OUTSaskatoon's mission is to uplift 2SLGTBQIA+ people by leading, serving, and supporting in a dynamic community. They foster physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual health through intentional services and meaningful engagement.
Rather than a screen print, this design is applied using a heat press transfer. This allowed us to include all of the colours of the inclusive flag whereas screen printing is limited to six colours. These garments must be cold-washed and hung to dry to maintain their quality.
*The 2022 collab is SOLD OUT, but keep an eye out in June of 2023 for the next one.
