Love Boat Shop
Love Boat - Founded in the Spring of 2004, Love Boat was the first LGBT physical lifestyle shop in Asia.
Love Boat was created by a group of passionate advocates for LGBT equality and diversity. The initial drive was but a small dream, a hope for a home of loving vibe; a place where our LGBT family can be free to be themselves, to shop, and to connect to other LGBT happenings around the world. Persistent in our purpose, Love Boat grew from a small lifestyle shop of chest binders, fashion wears, books, DVDs, androgynous clothing, erotic toys, and pride accessories to a LGBT community platform with LGBT photography, Tarot and Iching reading, holistic healing & aromatherapy, and wellness workshops.
Love Boat has been active in the global LGBT movement and supports Marriage Equality. In the past 10 years, we have had the chance to be invited to federal programs, academic foundations, corporations and NGO hosted events. In 2006, Taipei Times and other international media (websites, the Lonely Planet travel books, Curve and other magazines) have published numerous articles and publishing of Love Boat. In 2011, we have collaborated with The Women's Film Festival, Urban Nomad, LGBT film festival and other documentary films. And in 2014, we were invited to attend the Hong Kong LGBT Reading Fair.
In the past years of foundation, we are beginning to witness a LGBT enlightenment movement, individuals seeking to surpass the ordinary. The LGBT group began with the search for self identity but now embarking on the search for LGBT spirituality. Taiwan is a LGBT friendly country, and attracts LGBT families from around the world. Love Boat is building its way to be the transit stop for LGBTs around the world; as seen with the message post in the physical shop. In trinity with the earth, heaven and mankind, Love Boat provides a platform for our voices to be heard. And we wish for the Earth Village to become a LGBT friendly, free, equal place of Great Unity.
About Love Boat Chest/Breast Binders
Love Boat Shop understands the issues and sensitive topics FTMs , Gender Queers, Tomboys may come across during their everyday lives. That is why we wish to bring comfortable binding solutions to FTMs and other female-bodied folks. Feel free to ask us about FTM Binders.
The invention of chest binders came from the practical needs of people who desires to minimize the appearance of their born chest. Many have tried ways to moderate their chest sizes, however, incorrect methods might do harm to the body. In view of these concerns, Love Boat has developed a series of chest binders that can achieve the aim of creating a flat-chest appearance in a much healthier and more comfortable way.
In addition to placing a focus on functions, our chest binders use stretch Lycra fabrics, Tactel, Cotton, or DRY WAY. We offer special no sweat smart fabric that is water-absorbent and makes the wearer feel at ease and no burdens. Cutting-edge techniques are incorporated into the design, allowing the fabric elasticity to perform a perfect flat-chested look.
