Celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, Perth-based designer Poppy Lissiman’s “Pride” necklace is made from 18k gold-plated sterling silver and high-quality rainbow-colored cubic zirconia. 10% of the profits are donated to Rainbow International, an organization dedicated to empowering LGBTQ+ rights activists in countries where gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender people are criminalized. Price is in AUD.
Founded and run by women, Wildfang supports the LGBTQ community all year—in 2017 they donated some $75K to various women- and LGBTQ-focused organizations including the ACLU and the Tegan and Sara Foundation. Right now, they’re sending a portion of the profits from the sale of the Pride iteration of their Wild Feminist T-shirt to The Trevor Foundation. The relaxed fit top is boxy and made for all genders; available in size from XS to 2XL.
Even just a rainbow trim speaks volumes. Such is the case on 2(X)IST’s Pride Jogger Colorblock Swim Short—all-white poly-microtwill with a colorful, celebratory accent. As for function, there’s a quick-dry mesh interior and deep side pockets, too. It’s the style that truly impresses, with retro dolphin splits at the side hem and a no-show rise. The brand is also making a donation to The Trevor Project.
This mesh tote bag—complete with rainbow strap—is made by UO in collaboration with GLSEN, an organization that’s aiming to create more LGBTQ-inclusive schools. With a mission that benefits both children and teens, the group was founded by a small team of teachers 25 years ago. UO will be donating $10 from the sale of each tote directly to GLSTEN in celebration and support of Pride.
With the message of “Unity &” embroidered in an array of colors on the front, ASOS’s GLAAD-partnered oversized sweatshirt reads loud and clear. The unisex item offers a roomy, active fit. Further, 25% of the proceeds from every shirt sold go to GLAAD—an organization protecting love equality.
The fact that no two handles are exactly alike—thanks to a truly unique, celebratory and mystifying iridescent finish—is only a sliver of the allure emanating from the razor in Harry’s new Shave With Pride set. The handles are a clever take on the rainbow association, of course, but it’s really the fact that 100% of all profits get donated to LGBTQ charities including GLAAD, APLA Health, Self Evident Truths Project, True Colors Fund and more. And again, usefulness remains at the forefront, with three German-engineered blade cartridges and a foaming shave shave (though, cream is an alternative) also in the kit.
With $10,000 each going to The Trevor Project and Lambda Legal—two organizations that offer support to the LGBTQ community in a multitude of ways—Warby Parker’s “Prism” collection of Haskell-style sunglasses offers a rainbow of colorways. From pink to red, blue and beyond, the new colorways are bright and statement-making—and our pick is Amethyst Crystal.
The message is clear on Lambda Legal’s Support Trans tank: it says “SUED” on the front and “SUPPORT TRANS LIVES” on the back. The pink and blue text pops against the white jersey cotton tank. But most importantly, all funds received go to support Lambda Legal’s lawsuit against the ban of transgender people in the military.
Year after year, Converse finds ways to bring a rainbow’s worth of color to their annual Pride Collection. This time they enlisted the help of Miley Cyrus and the many designs convey true joy. Our favorite unisex style features glittery polka dots on the canvas upper—but there’s a surprise underneath as well. We truly love the collection though because all net proceeds will support the Happy Hippie Foundation, a non-profit benefiting LGBTQ youth.
With silver, rainbow-flecked glitter gloss (made for lips and/or skin) and an equality temporary tattoo stamp, Milk’s Pride Pack is sheer celebration. All products included are vegan, cruelty- and talc-free. During June, the company is donating 50% of the packs’ sales to The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center (aka The Center) which offers support, education and events for NYC’s LGBTQ communities.
Right to the point, Poketo’s colorful “As I Am” lapel pin is made to celebrate you as you are. Plus, for the month of June, 50% of the proceeds from sales with go directly to the Los Angeles LGBT Center, which offers the community support regarding health, housing, social services, education, leadership, advocacy and more. Last month the organization opened their 3,000-square-foot Trans Wellness Center—which is the result of six different local organizations joining forces.
This all-genders, four-color printed T-shirt boasts a delightful take on the ’80s English pop band Tears for Fears. Reading “Queers for Fears—angrier and scarier than ever,” the shirt is made from 100% jersey knit, heavyweight cotton and is available from small to XXXL. Best of all, Revel and Riot is an LGBTQ non-profit organization that also donates proceeds to other significant organizations all year—not just during Pride Month.
Celebrating and supporting the LGBTQ community (as they do every year) Levi’s has released their 2018 Pride Collection, and our pick from it is the two-pack of striped socks. Made from 77% cotton, they have plenty of stretch and feature the all-familiar and cheerful rainbow flag colors.
With 10% of all proceeds donated to the Lesbian Herstory Archives, Otherwild’s boxy, unisex “Gay Power” T-Shirt is for anybody and everybody who believes in the sentiment. Also available as a black-on-black hoodie, the design was inspired by a balloon at the 1970 Christopher Street Liberation Day Parade.
In response to Chechen leader Ramzan Kadyrov’s statement that no gay people exist in the nation—and frequent reports that the region’s queer community is under grave duress—NYC-based artist Paul Tuller created this LGBTQ Chechnya T-shirt. All 100% of proceeds from sales will be donated to The Russian LGBT Network, an NGO that has been working to extract members of the queer community from Chechnya safely. Available in small, medium, large, and double XL.
