Last week, a number of high-profile actors who’ve previously appeared in The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring trilogy made social posts while wearing T-shirts from Don Marshall’s online merch store. The shirts displayed the words “You Are All Welcome Here” in Elvish (translation by @WizardWayKris).
