You’re here. Yaaas Queen! You actually typed Fag into your web browser! Thank you!
FagSigns is a neon signage company, based out of Brooklyn NY, serving the LGBTQ+ community as well as those feeling marginalized in a problematic world, specializing in words and phrases. Our mission is to light up your words both physically and metaphorically.
One day I wrote the word fag on a piece of paper in a bright, bold, pink paint marker, I thought hmmm, this will make an outrageous neon sign. Thinking nothing of it, I left it on the table near my desk. Later in the afternoon the manager came in acrimoniously demanding to know who wrote it. It really caught me off guard. After a moment. I said… I did…..Because I am one. In that instant I could see the power of taking back a word that was weaponized against me. I knew from that moment on I needed to reclaim it as my own. And FagSigns was born.
