June is Pride Month, a time set aside to honor the LGBTQ community (though you can and should do it daily). Initially instituted as a way to commemorate the Stonewall Riots in New York City in 1969, it has grown to become a month of support, celebration, and education. As a nod to the LGBTQ community, many fashion brands debut Pride 2021 collections and Pride shoes, but how many actually support the community? Whether with action, education, or monetary pledges, there are a handful of brands that, in fact, do put action where their words are.
From donations supporting LGBTQ youth to brands owned and operated by people in the community, the below list features clothing companies taking their Pride 2021 collections to the next level.
And the fashion items are pretty stellar, too. Think 2000s shoes with a Pride-themed upgrade, duffel bags with rainbow straps, and your quintessential graphic tee with sayings like “Love First” inscribed on front.
Ahead, find all the brands that are not only creating Pride shoes, clothing, and jewelry in celebration of the LGBTQ community, but are also donating to the cause.
