Fashion designer Kenneth Cole is urging Congress to repeal “Don't Ask, Don't Tell” with a limited edition t-shirt.

DADT is the 1993 law that forbids gay troops from revealing their sexuality. Over 13,000 gay and lesbian service members have been fired under the policy.

Pending legislation before Congress would repeal the law. Republicans, however, have united to fight repeal of the gay ban. Only five House GOP lawmakers voted in favor of adding repeal language to next year's defense budget. Senate Republicans – led by Arizona Senator John McCain – have threatened to filibuster the bill when it comes up for a vote later this summer.

Earlier this month, Kenneth Cole unveiled a new t-shirt that urges repeal. The limited edition t-shirt features Uncle Sam with the caption “I WANT YOU … YOU'RE SO REPEALING (DON'T ASK, DON'T TELL).”

All net proceeds go to the AWEARNESS Fund, a not-for-profit entity that supports, encourages and empowers acts of service, volunteerism and social change, and the Human Rights Campaign (HRC), the nation's largest advocate for gay rights.

The shirt sells for $35 at Kenneth Cole retail outlets (Philadelphia, New York, Chicago and San Francisco) and can also be purchased online at the HRC shop.
