The fashion brands raising and supporting a range of LGBTQIA+ causes throughout Pride Month

June marks the month where we celebrate and raise awareness for all things Pride amongst the LGBTQIA+ communities.

Back in 1969 when the Stonewall riots occurred in New York City the demonstration quickly became the catalyst for LGBTQIA+ rights everywhere.

Despite being 50 years on, Pride is very much still needed across the world as not only do 69 countries still have laws that criminalise homosexuality but we’re also seeing the murders of innocent trans and non-binary individuals.

Over the past years we have seen multiple brands such as PUMA, Converse and Levi’s launch specific Pride collections which aim to raise important funds for various charities.

So dig deep and sport some of these brands amazing new designs to raise those all important funds for those who need them.

Also whilst you’re shopping, why not take a little time to educate yourself and learn a bit more about the Pride movement.

Happy shopping…

Converse

Each year we see this iconic brand launch a range of products for Pride month that always steals the show.

For this year’s campaign, the collection is driven by the stories of five LGBTQIA+ people from around the world Caleb, Rocio, Tereza, Ty and Xandro.

Inspired by their stories, the new range features a range of graphically-driven pieces to fun customisable pieces so there is literally something for everyone.

As always, Converse have made sure to support an important group of LGBTQIA+ charities from the It Gets Better Project, Ali Forney Center, BAGLY and OUT MetroWest.
