“Daddy, if we can’t make $500 a month, it’s a good sign that we shouldn’t be doing this,” says our co-founder, David Lauterstein, of the earliest days of Nasty Pig.

Nasty Pig opened its first tiny store under the name “re:vision” on West 22nd Street in December of 1994. Watch David discuss what it was like for him and his husband, co-founder Frederick Kearney, as they began the Nasty Pig journey.

30 years later, David and Fred are still at the helm of the brand. They’re still here, and they’re still queer.
