For the second time, we’re teaming up with our favorite jewelry brand, LZZR Jewelry, for a holiday collaboration! Starting today, you can purchase the LZZR Tie The Knot Bow Tie Key Chain for $45. Proceeds from the key chain go to Tie The Knot and our mission advocating for LGBTQ equality worldwide!

Each key chain has a stunning & hand-made bronze bow tie crafted from repurposed metals. LZZR takes metal scraps from local metal supplies and uses them to make bronze and copper pieces – all handcrafted in Downtown Los Angeles.

Jesse is obviously excited about this collaboration: “We’re so excited to partner with LZZR Jewelry once again to complete my life mission of fashion domination by bow ties. This classy key chain is about to become your most treasured fashion accessory.”

While the Supreme Court Marriage Equality ruling in June was certainly an incredible victory, both LZZR Jewelry and Tie The Knot are aware that there is much more that needs to be done for LGBTQ rights. When it comes to issues such as healthcare, housing, and workplace equality, federal protections are lacking for millions of LGBTQ Americans. All proceeds of the bronze and brass Bow Tie Key Chain will be donated to

There’s no doubt, the LZZR Tie The Knot Key Chain makes the perfect holiday gift for your friends, family, and co-workers – all while supporting a worthy cause!

Today we launched our newest collection – a fall line perfect for the season with a guest design by Josh Hutcherson!

In a nod to the glamour of old Hollywood, our newest collection echoes the style and class of the classic Los Angeles art deco designs you’d find around the city. The collection is both sophisticated and cool, and each tie is perfect to wear during the day at the office, for a night on the town, or at a great fall gala.

Each tie in our newest collection is named after one of the great actors of Hollywood’s golden age – each tie perfectly reflecting their personality. In this collection you’ll find a variety of jewel toned hues of navy, silver, burgundy, plum, black and gold.

$20 from every $25 purchase will be donated to Tie The Knot to help us continue our fight for LGBTQ equality worldwide! Despite a great marriage equality victory this past summer, there is still much work to do; in 33 states, there are no laws prohibiting housing or employment discrimination based on sexual orientation or gender identity.

Help us advocate for equality and look damned good while doing it!

Not only is Josh Hutcherson a big screen favorite in the Hollywood hit The Hunger Games, he is a loyal ally to the LGBT community and a powerful influencer for younger generations. We are proud and excited to team up with Josh for our fall collection.

Josh designed a limited-edition signature bow tie included in our fall launch to support his organization – Straight But Not Narrow – a not-for-profit primarily focused on straight youth & young adults, which strives to positively influence the perception of, and behavior toward, their LGBT peers.

“Straight But Not Narrow has always been about allowing people to be whoever they are. It’s about letting people know it’s okay to be yourself and you should actively support others to do the same.” said Josh Hutcherson.

“We created our SBNN bow tie with Tie The Knot to help raise awareness and funds to keep our efforts moving forward. Rocking this tie means you are letting people around you know that you support them and their pursuit to become the best person they can be.”

Hutcherson’s tie design features a solid black pebbled texture with a hint of a neon lime stripe. A sleek, almost leather finish to the tie is a perfect homage to an accessory that’s straight out of The Hunger Games’ now famed stylish Capital.

Today, we are so excited to launch a limited edition Tie The Knot bow tie designed by CFDA award-winning fashion designer, Billy Reid!

Mr. Mag says of the unique bow: “the handmade silk creation is a spin on a standard camo print and color palette with a luxe finish not traditionally seen with camo.”

Known for his “low-fi Southern-bred luxury” style, Billy Reid has designed this bow to help support the Human Rights Campaign via Tie The Knot’s mission of supporting organizations worldwide who are leading the charge for universal LGBTQ equality. All funds raised via the sail of Billy Reid’s design will be donated to HRC and the fight for LGBTQ equality beyond marriage, especially in the American south.

Don’t wait to get your hands on this limited edition bow tie. It’s perfect for fall and to add a pop of color and design to a simpler look.

We are so excited and proud to be partnering with the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission (IGLHRC) for the month of September! All proceeds raised by Tie The Knot this month will be donated to this amazing organization.

IGLHRC is the only U.S.-based international LGBTQ rights organization recognized by the United Nations and has been at the forefront of human rights advocacy since 1990 on behalf of people who experience discrimination or abuse on the basis of their actual or perceived sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

Across the globe, IGLHRC works with the UN and regional human rights monitoring bodies to document LGBT human rights violations and effectively engage in human rights advocacy with various communities. Last month, they supported the first UN Security Council meeting on LGBT rights, dealing with the difficult subject of gay executions by the so-called “Islamic State” in Syria and Iraq.

IGLHRC achieves their mission by various means such as organizing a campaign to raise thousands of dollars for a Ugandan LGBT magazine, publishing an LGBT comic in Farsi depicting gay Iranians, and actively training activists and authorities in Tunisia, the Philippines, and elsewhere about LGBT rights.

We are honored to work with such an engaging organization with a global reach.
