Have A Gay Old Time

Turn the heat up on Freddie Mercury. Get a little Oscar Wilde. Any way you pour it, you'll have fun with this inspirational mug featuring history's gay elite playfully emerging from their respective doors. Just pour some warm water into this heat-sensitive mug and out they'll come! This colorful cup is a creative way to proudly celebrate the life and times of 14 great artists and innovators, including James Baldwin, Alan Turing, Gertrude Stein, and more! It's hysterically historical, or historically hysterical. Either way, you'll be saying "Oh my, Audre Lorde!" the next time you reach for a hot cup of joe--or James, or Oscar, or Gertrude...

Featured artists and innovators:
James Baldwin, Willa Cather, Michel Foucault, Audre Lord, Freddie Mercury, Michelangelo, Yukio Mishima, Sappho, Gertrude Stein, Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky, Alan Turing, Andy Warhol, Walt Whitman, Oscar Wilde.

Comments about GREAT GAYS MUG:

My brother-in-law will love this mug……the famous gays come out of the closet when hot liquid is added. Great Christmas present for gay family and friends who have come out. Sturdy mug, good sized. Just don't put it in the dishwasher.

    Comments about GREAT GAYS MUG:

    This product, along with the Declaration of Independence tie was bought for my 17 year old nephew as part of his graduation gift. He loved it and his Mom went straight to the sink to test the graphics out! It was a big hit. My only complaint is it seemed like the water either had to be excessively hot or run on the outside of the mug to get the image to appear. Still happy with the gift as I felt it was unique and fitting for my nephew.

        My brother in law dashed for the hot water to see the mug fully revealed. Will be a topic at breakfast for a long tie.

        Service and delivery comments:

        The ordering was a nightmare. The website only allows you to order 10 items at a time. You don.'t know that until your credit card s not accepted. I spent 1.5 hours on the phone with customer service. They were obviously frustrated with the company's web design but nobody could help me. I had to give the order verbally, spoiling a surprise for my husband who was in the room. Ordering from Africa was easier. Unfortunately, I tried very hard to get these items at other companies, but they kept referring me ack to uncommon goods. They need to catch up to the 20th century now that we are in the 21st century.

          This mug is fabulous! When it came in the mail it was a tiny bit shorter/smaller than I expected, but still pretty good-sized. This mug was a wonderful gift full of history, humor, surprise, and character! Now that I gave it as a gift I'm thinking about getting one for myself... I absolutely love it.

          This mug made for such a great gift! I gave it to my brother on Christmas morning and he opened it to use it immediately!! We all watched in anticipation as the great gays came out of the closet. The concept alone was terrific, but having so many wonderful people featured on it made it that much better! Depending on how the temperature of the liquid you fill it with, the mug can transform pretty quickly. I only wish it were dishwasher safe! Campy and fun, this was such a brilliant idea!
