Earlier in the week, we wondered at the curious signage on the windows at Ralph Lauren on Bleecker Street. It wasn't long before a commenter chimed in and we heard from RL peeps themselves explaining that the "I Kiss Boys" isn't for naught, it's to promote tote bags they're selling to benefit the Hetrick-Martin Institute (home of the Harvey Milk High School).
For $10, the bags designed by the Milk students are a bargain and perhaps the perfect thing for toting your beer money and beads during the Pride March this Sunday. Oh yea?you can choose between "I Kiss Boys" or"I Kiss Girls," but sadly not "I Kiss Boys And Girls."
