That went well…

… in fact it went very well.

Yesterday was #TieForHelena day. It was done to show support for someone who was attacked just for wearing a tie. We wanted to tell homophobia to get knotted. There was one hell of a response from people.

There were a number of news stories, articles and blogs written on this:

Buzzfeed
The Telegraph
Diva
Technokitten

We had people wear ties with shirts:

And people wear ties without shirts:

We had people in offices wear ties:

We’ve had swimmers in ties:

And babies:

But most importantly – and this was the main reason for #TieForHelena, to show Helena that we are all supporting her and want her to have the confidence to wear a tie again after the attack – we had Helena herself wearing a tie:
