Do-Gooder John Bartlett: SAGE Advocate and Animal Saver

New, 1 comment

Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

Have you seen these Spanish-language subway posters for SAGE (Services & Advocacy for GLBT Elders)? "John," top right, is none other than local designer John Bartlett, semi-anonymously showing support for a group that fights discrimination against gay seniors along with providing informal home care and access to new "family" networks (like the Golden Girls!) Who doesn't love this guy?

We already knew Bartlett was all about rescuing homeless and abandoned pets. He's holding another animal-adoption event at his West Village shop on Saturday, July 31st, in conjunction with the North Shore Animal League. Stop by if you're looking for a pet, would like to pet a pet, want to make a donation, or just want to do a little shopping—noon to 5pm.
