Sex: both
Type of clothing: Oversize T-shirt with Choose Life in block lette
When it was popular: Late 80's?
Description: Being the naive person I was I didn't make the connection that George Micheal and Andrew Ridgley were lovers (even though they were looking oh so cute dancing around in these shirts with tiny dolphin shorts and shiny tans). The "Choose Life" shirts must have been some kind of Aids statement in reaction to Frankies "Relax"

George Michael is gay, Andrew Ridgely is not. Its not about AIDS either its about druguse in the 80s.

Yeah, Drug use and Anti-Abortion, and it started in 1984, but I think they were still popular throughout after that.

The Choose Life shirts and that style of big-block-print black lettering on an oversized white t-shirt was introduced by British designer Katherine Hamnett in 1983. One of the most famous examples of it was one that said "58% Don't Want Pershing," in reference to a US nuclear weapons facility allowed to be placed in Britain by Thatcher but opposed by most of the public. Hamnett wore a shirt that said that when she met Thatcher. And Hamnett in no way intended "Choose Life" to be anti-abortion, as that wasn't and isn't an issue in the UK; she intended it to be a pro-environment, anti-suicide, and anti-harmful-drugs message.

Regardless of whether or not George intended it to be a pro-Life T-shirt. That would be the only reason I would wear it. way too easily ;^)

I deconstructed mine and my "Relax" T-shirts, and reassembled them so it is now a combination of both shirts. I have both in original form as well. I got mine at a club when they were throwing them out to people on the dance floor.
