About Cody Trade LLC

What's in a Name?     CODY TRADE LLC


So, you've stumbled upon this blog post, curious to know more about my brand. Well, let me tell you, it's not your average run-of-the-mill brand. No, sir! My brand is like a Top in a world full of bottoms, a breath of fresh poppers  in a room full of more bottoms.

Embracing the Quirkiness

When it comes to my brand, I don't take myself too seriously. Life is too short to be boring, right? That's why my brand is all about embracing the quirks and celebrating the uniqueness that makes us who we are. It's like a party where everyone is invited, no matter how weird or wonderful they may be or how boring or anything that matters to other people.

Dark Humor: A Dash of @%^&^

Now, let's talk about dark humor. Brace yourself, because we're about to dive into the depths of hilarity. As a gay man, I've learned to find laughter in the darkest corners of life. And let me tell you, my brand is no exception. We sprinkle dark humour like stripper glitter from last nights drag event, adding that extra dash of spice to everything we do.

Unleashing Creativity

My brand is a playground for creativity. We believe in thinking outside the box, coloring outside the lines, and dancing like nobody's watching. It's a place where ideas come to life, where imagination runs wild, and where the status quo is left at the door.

Building Connections

But my brand is not just about being quirky and funny oh and very very tall. It's also about building connections (and saying fuck you to being forced because of  disability to live far far far far far far far below the federal poverty line and i mean like $20,000 lower). We believe in the power of community, in bringing people together through shared experiences and laughter some old fashioned GD. Ive been shown in most of the time on this planet that people either love me or they hate me so lets see which ones will win.. Because when we drink together, we create bonds that can withstand anything including time (unless you blacked out)

Join the Quirky Revolution

So, my friend, if you're tired of the same old, same old, and you're ready to embrace the awkward tall quirkiness that life has to offer, then my brand is for you. Join the ungodly tall quirky revolution and let's make the world a taller, funnier, less light and more  drinking friendly place, one drunk drag queen laugh at a time.

Remember, life is too short to be serious. So, why not add a little humor, a little quirkiness, and a whole lot of fun to your journey? Welcome to my brand!

Welcome to Cody Trade LLC, the clothing brand that embodies the power of resilience and challenges societal norms. Our brand origin story is one of adversity and triumph, starting with our founder, a former  graphic designer student who faced a life-altering traumatic brain injury. This unexpected disability led them to rely solely on government assistance, barely making ends meet.
Determined to create a more independent and prosperous future, our founder recognized the need for an alternative income source. And so, Cody Trade LLC was born - a platform that allowed them to showcase their original graphic designs and enhanced creations while not loosing the lifeline benefit that keeps them housed.
However, Cody Trade LLC is much more than just a means of supplementing income. It represents a bold and humorous spirit that challenges societal norms and aims to make people laugh. Each design carries the founder's unique perspective, intending to shock, provoke, and entertain simultaneously.
Although Cody Trade is not a non-profit, it is an LLC owned and operated by CodyTrade LLC - an entity driven by the passion to pave a path of independence and prosperity. We firmly believe that individuals should not be limited to the government's notion that $1,200 a month is enough to survive. By supporting Cody Trade, you are not only empowering the founder to thrive against all odds but also questioning and challenging this flawed system.
At Cody Trade LLC, our brand identity revolves around the belief that humor has the power to drive societal change. We embrace dark humor, not to offend, but to initiate conversations and challenge oppressive systems that disadvantage marginalized communities, like ours. Our products are designed to reflect our belief in the power of humor to drive societal change.
Our founder's upbringing in a rural area of northern California exposed them to the struggles of expressing their sexuality, love for punk rock, and unconventional outlook on life. Nevertheless, they refused to conform, cherishing their individuality.
This rebellious spirit and love for all things outside of the norm have profoundly shaped the essence of Cody Trade. We celebrate uniqueness, boldness, and unconventionality. Through our products, we break free from the chains of societal expectations, creating a safe space for self-expression and evoking strong emotions and ask the question why do we expect people with less to do more for themselves. 
We understand that life can be challenging, which is why humor is paramount to us. Our aim is to bring joy, laughter, and even controversy into your life. Each Cody Trade product is designed to provoke thought and challenge the status quo. By wearing Cody Trade, you become part of a movement that seeks to dismantle oppressive systems and surpass the limitations imposed by society.
We invite you to explore our website, www.codytrade.com, and discover our collection of clothing that seamlessly blends humor, provocative imagery, and bold graphics. With every purchase, you not only support an individual's journey but also contribute to our mission of defying societal norms. 
Join our movement, wear Cody Trade, and let's challenge the flawed system together.
