It's the most important question you'll be asked, "Are you Shreveportant?"

You may have seen a few of these shirts around the SBC. The simply state, "I'm Shreveportant." So let me ask you, are you Shreveportant? The answer should be yes. This positivity-spreading brand is meant to celebrate the good work being done in our community and encourage others to pick up the flame and run with it.

It's the brainchild of Tara and Pete John.

Both were born and raised in Shreveport and are the parents of two girls. As parents, the Johns have learned the power of being positive and being proud of the city we call home. In Pete's eyes, there has never been an energy in our city quite like there is now.

“Shreveport is on the cusp of greatness and NOW is the time to showcase the progressiveness of our extraordinary city. There are many outstanding things happening in Shreveport. The energy of our community is at an all-time high. That is why we felt now is the time to
launch the SHREVEPORTANT brand.”

Aside from spreading the good, Shreveportant will provide a landing page for visitors to find people who are a part of this progressive movement. The goal is to create a better and even greater Shreveport. Wanna join? Good! You can purchase a T-shirt to show your pride at Kings Hardware and The Agora Borealis.

The official Shreveportant kickoff will happen tonight (Saturday, November 19) at Red River Brewing. The first 100 people through the door will receive a Shreveportant pint glass. In addition, Ki'Mexico and Sweeport will be on site and we'll hear live music from Shreveport's own Beaux Atkins.

Now, let me ask you again... Are you Shreveportant?
