This cool tee features a rainbow graphic of a block of text with the title "Word Gaymes" written over it. The colorful text block contains a long list of different slang terms, slogans, titles, and sex terminology that's commonly used in the LGBTQ community. Just a few of the phrases found on the shirt include things like stone butch, cruising, black triangle, sugar mommy, femme, circuit, safe sex, and take back the night. Many of the terms apply more specifically to the lesbian community such as Boston marriage, soft butch, and lipstick femme.
There's not a lot of other info provided on the shirt aside from a 1997 copyright. There's a possibility it could have been connected to some sort of event or piece of media like the puzzle book Word Gaymes written by Kathleen Debold in 1993, which was a crossword puzzle book themed around gay and lesbian terminology. The shirt could also just be a colorful celebration of LGBTQ linguistics and slang.
