Guelede Dance

May we present the Guelede Dance of Dahomey, also called the Gelede Dance. Dahomey is now called Benin, and is a small country in Western Africa. The Gelede Dance is a celebration of mothers as wise elders. The men dress up as women to amuse and placate the mothers, and perform in pairs a specially choreographed dance. The ceremony also involves singing and drumming and takes place in the spring when the dry season ends. Now that you know the cultural significance of this unusual t-shirt, you can explain it to all the curious onlookers who will flock around you when you wear it. Enjoy spreading the knowledge and amusing your own mother.
