It’s that time of year again. The holiday season is in full swing, we’ve traded our iced coffees for mint mochas, and most of us are getting ready for those shopping deals. As exciting as the holiday hustle and bustle leadup can be for some of us, preparing ourselves to go back home for the holidays can be emotionally and mentally taxing.  Particularly when it comes to gearing up to be around relatives and family friends who might not totally see eye to eye on politics and social justice issues. As important as it is to ensure healthy and productive conversations about these topics around this time of the season, sometimes its easier to make a clear statement without getting completely confrontational.

To do so, we’ve rounded up the best (and loudest) statement Ts for you wear to your family dinner this holiday season.

From being straight up and clear about your feelings about current politics to being out and proud about your sexuality, here’s a list of the perfect shirts just for you.
