We are so excited to announce that Tony Nominee Jonathan Groff, most recently seen in Hamilton on Broadway, has joined our extensive list of celebrity guest designers. Jonathan has designed a limited-edition bow tie in support of Tie The Knot and its LGBTQ advocacy efforts.

Jonathan’s design, inspired by one of his favorite artists Jackson Pollock, puts a playful spin on a textural paint splattered print, perfect for any black tie, white tie, or red carpet occasion. “I’m so excited to support Tie The Knot and all of the incredible work they are doing for LGBTQ equality by designing this bowtie inspired by one of my favorite artists. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!” says Jonathan.

Jonathan’s design is part of our summer collection, which was inspired by Broadway shows in celebration of Jesse Tyler Ferguson’s return to the Great White Way.

We are so excited to be partnering with GLSEN (Gay, Lesbian & Straight Education Network) for the month of March! All profits raised this month will be donated to this transformative organization and their efforts to ensure that LGBTQ equality is won beyond the courtrooms and in the lives of every student nationwide.

Tie The Knot was founded in 2012 with the ultimate goal of advocating for and helping to win marriage equality across the United States. In 2015 we celebrated as every couple across the nation was finally afforded their right to marriage. But, there is so much to accomplish to reach true LGBT equality and create a society, which encourages expression and positive sense of self. This is why we chose to team up with GLSEN.

LGBTQ equality means so much more than just marriage equality. Though legal battles are being fought in every state for employment and housing nondiscrimination measures, equality also means ensuring identity and expression are celebrated, not suppressed.

GLSEN works every day to make sure that each member of every school community is valued and respected, regardless of sexual orientation, gender identity, or gender expression. GLSEN helps students realize their full potential by partnering with federal, state, and local policymakers and communities to make school environments inclusive.

We are honored to support such an important and engaging organization, which works to ensure the future leaders of our world are consistently encouraged and valued.

$20 of every $25 bow tie purchase made this month will be donated directly to GLSEN. Visit The Tie Bar today to get your Tie The Knot bow ties and help GLSEN make an equal education accessible to all students.

Tie The Knot is excited to announce Cyndi Lauper has joined it’s extensive list of celebrity guest designers who have designed ties in support of LGBTQ equality!

Cyndi’s exclusive limited-edition tie supports her organization, The True Colors Fund, which works to end homelessness among lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender youth, creating a world in which young people can be their true selves.

Lauper’s design puts a playful spin on the classic leopard print, a spot on (pun intended) accessory for anyone looking to walk on the wild side while supporting a worthwhile cause.

“The True Colors Fund and I are happy to be able to partner with Jesse, Justin, and Tie The Knot to further advance equality for the LGBTQ community,” said Cyndi Lauper, co-founder of the True Colors Fund. “Using fashion to help ensure that everyone in America is treated with dignity and respect is an opportunity I could not pass up.”

$20 of every $25 Cyndi Lauper bow tie purchase goes toward The True Colors Fund and their fight to end LGBT youth homelessness across the country.
