Pride Month is officially here. Whether you’re heading to a parade or just catching up on your favorite shows with friends (and allies), this is a weekend to celebrate being creative, being free and being true to yourself.
It’s not just the LGBTQIA community that has something to celebrate either. With summer quickly approaching, it’s time for us to get out there and enjoy the warm weather and summer festivities. Before you head out though, make sure you’re prepared — both for allergy season (it’s here) and for any unwanted wardrobe malfunctions. Here’s what you need to know this weekend.
1. The Best Things To Buy From H&M’s Pride Collection
A first for the brand, H&M has teamed up with Out Magazine to launch its 2018 PRIDE Collection, out now for LGBTQIA Pride Month this June. The collection’s campaign features the influential model and activist Gabrielle Richardson, the inimitable Aja of RuPaul’s Drag Racefame, along with influencers ranging from the Trans singer Kim Petras, to openly-gay Olympic skier Gus Kenworthy.
The collection itself includes solid pieces that promote themes of individuality, acceptance and equality. The best part: 10% of sales goes to the UN’s Free and Equal campaign. Here are our top five highlights.
2. J.Crew Is Donating 50% From This T-Shirt’s Sales to the Human Rights Commission
June is Pride month, a time for LGBTQIA members and their allies to band together and show off their rainbows sure, but also their resilience.
In support of that, J.Crew has designed a custom tee that boasts the uplifting message, “Love First.” The shirt is available in both men and women’s designs, one featuring rainbow lettering and the other featuring a rainbow period. If its direct, positive message wasn’t enough to convince you to dive in, J.Crew has announced it will donate 50% of the purchase price to the Human Rights Campaign, an organization that works to fight LGBTQ discrimination. As well as advocating for human rights, the group also investigates and mediate discrimination complaints.
