Grape has always, and will always, stand for Freedom. The freedom to express yourself the way you want, to live the way you want, and to love the person you want. There where some that said that Grape should not be involved with GayRVA in a charity event. Some who said it would hurt us, that the streetwear and hip hop communities where to closed minded on this issue to ever accept it. But that is not what Grape is. We reject this idea as totally as we reject the idea that it is possible to fight racism and classism while defending homophobia. Grape is for growth even if it makes some uncomfortable. Equality means equality for all.
For this reason Grape is proud to stand with GayRVA and many other RVA fashion trendsetters in supporting another charity event:
