Gap & Big Gay Ice Cream are teaming up for 30 days of tees and ice cream, beginning Thursday, June 25, for NYC Pride, and running through Sunday, July 26. Gap has transformed their midtown concept space, located at their flagship store on Fifth Avenue between 53rd and 54th Streets, into a Big Gay Ice Cream pop-up print and ice cream shop, complete with ice cream cart, unicorn murals, and rainbow sprinkles. Utilizing Big Gay Ice Cream’s iconic rainbow swirled logo and unicorn mascot, Gap has created three limited edition prints, available only at the Fifth Avenue location. A selection of pre-printed t-shirts are available, in addition to a venerable rainbow of colored tees and logos, allowing customers to mix and match to create their own custom “flavor” shirt. Autographed copies of Big Gay Ice Cream: Saucy Stories & Frozen Treats will be also available.

On Saturdays and Sundays anyone who purchases a book or t-shirt will receive a complimentary Big Gay Ice Cream sandwich (subject to availability).


This special promotion, and these limited edition t-shirt designs, are only available at the Gap Fifth Avenue store, located between 53rd and 54th Streets. They are not available online, nor at Big Gay Ice Cream locations. This special collaboration only runs from Thursday, June 25 - Sunday, July 26.




Fishs Eddy Event


Win an ice cream machine!

Would you like to win a Breville Smart Scoop, one of the best home ice cream makers available? Fine! You’re going to need an Instagram account, some time in your kitchen, and a little bit of Big Gay Ice Cream inspiration.

Between Monday Jun 15 and Friday 19 post a photo of a recipe you’ve made from our book.* If you're able to include the Big Gay Ice Cream Book in the photo, that would really be swell. Hashtag your photo #bgicbreville and #bgicbook. On Saturday June 20 we’ll re-post some of our favorites and let you weigh in. On Sunday June 21 Bryan and I will choose our favorite and that person wins an awesome ice cream machine!

Here's a great example of what kind of photo we're looking for:
And here's what you'll win.
"The Smart Scoop™ is Breville's easy to use ice cream maker with automatic hardness settings. It's the first ice cream maker that automatically senses the hardness of the mixture based on your selection and keeps it ready until it's time to serve."

*If you’re not kitchen-inclined, that’s ok. Make something inspired by our book and tell us the story behind your creation.

Contest open to US and Canada postal addresses. If you work for Big Gay Ice Cream, Breville, Random House you’re ineligible. 



Book tour, baby

It's true, people! Big Gay Ice Cream Book is coming out on April 28. I know you've already pre-ordered your copy, and then taken your confirmation code to our home page to register for some free goodies. Right? Cool! So now come on out and see us in the following cities!

We're still hammering out the details for each town, so right now we're just telling you where you will be able to catch our scent. In a week or two this list will be updated with the whens and wheres. I think it's ok to tell you that we'll be collaborating with some of North American's best restaurants. Maybe it's not ok to tell you that, so please keep it to yourself. 

We're going to be visiting more cities during the summer and fall, so don't flip out and get all "I can't believe you're not coming to Boise!" (or whatever). Just hold tight. We want to go everywhere, but since that it really a tough one unless you have a Tardis, tesseract, and a black hole, we'll hit as many spots as we can manage.
