Open Hearted:
A Love, Simon x Rudy's Collaboration


Whether it’s coming out or finally telling that secret someone you love them, opening up takes heart. Since ’93, Rudy’s has been a place that’s championed those who are bold enough to be themselves. Now we’re partnering with the new coming of age film Love, Simon and GLSEN to continue the spread of that message.


Inspired by the movie’s main character, seventeen-year-old Simon Spier, and his epically complicated love story, we designed a limited-edition Open Hearted patch. It serves as a small but mighty reminder to be true to yourself—no matter how terrifying, wild, or life-changing that might seem.

To further that effort, Rudy’s is donating a portion of the proceeds from the sale of each patch to GLSEN to support their mission of making schools a safer place for every student by advocating for LGBTQ inclusion and acceptance in K-12 education.


More about Love, Simon

Everyone deserves a great love story. But for seventeen-year old Simon Spier it's a little more complicated: he's yet to tell his family or friends he's gay and he doesn't actually know the identity of the anonymous classmate he's fallen for online. Resolving both issues proves hilarious, terrifying and life-changing. Directed by Greg Berlanti (Dawson's Creek, Brothers & Sisters), written by Isaac Aptaker & Elizabeth Berger (This is Us), and based on Becky Albertalli's acclaimed novel, Love, Simon is a funny and heartfelt coming-of-age story about the thrilling ride of finding yourself and falling in love.

GLSEN wants every student, in every school, to be valued and treated with respect, regardless of their sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression. They believe that all students deserve a safe and affirming school environment where they can learn and grow. By working in hallways across the country -- from Congress and the Department of Education to schools and district offices– they’re taking big steps to improve school climate and champion LGBT issues in K-12 education.
