I'm Jasper (they/them), the designer, seamster, and owner of Gay Nerd Goods.
When I first came out, there was almost no pride merch that represented a nerdy, trans, bi, ace teen like me. LGBTQ identities were seen as niche, adult, and to be kept to oneself. Gay Nerd Goods was born to celebrate and uplift all queer people so we can boldly be our most confident selves! My focus is on visibility, inclusion, and queer joy with a humorous, nerdy twist.
Everything is designed, handmade, or curated by me: a queer, trans artist. I live in Michigan with my wife, Sadie (they/them), and our silly billy cat, Chungus. I love cooking, skating, open-world video games, and tabletop games.
This company is still a tiny one-man show, but I would be nowhere without your love and help. Thank you for placing an order, sharing with your friends, posting on social media, or otherwise supporting my small business!
