In honor of National Coming Out Day today, the HRC has introduced a new T-shirt featuring gay-friendly pop star Ke$ha, encouraging everyone to celebrate their inner superstar. HRC unveiled the new shirts today for the international coming out event.

Not surprisingly, Ke$ha’s “We R Who We R” has become a kind of LGBT anthem not unlike Lady Gaga’s “Born This Way,” for which the HRC also has shirts available (we know because we spotted them at the HRC shop in P-Town last week).

“Much like a zebra doesn’t change its stripes, we hope people of all walks of life, LGBT and straight allies, celebrate themselves and their unique contribution to the fight for equality,” explains HRC president Joe Solmonese.

As part of the Musicians for Equality series, the unisex T-shirt features a purple zebra and the words, “We R Who We R,” along with HRC’s equality logo and Ke$ha’s signature on the front.

The Musicians for Equality series is a collaborative project which celebrates musical artists’ contributions to the fight for LGBT equality. From straight allies offering messages of hope to openly LGBT artists sharing their personal experiences, each musician and designer has made a commitment to achieving equal rights, including Marc Jacobs, Michael Kors, Kenneth Cole, Calvin Klein, Perry Ellis, Christian Siriano, Heatherette, Alex & Chloe, Nike and American Apparel.

Will any of the Ke$ha fans out there be buying this tee? Psst, proceeds benefit HRC.
