Stay true, Stay You!June 17, 2019
Rainbows, rainbows, everywhere rainbows! Rainbows are popping everywhere during the month of June in support of the LGBTQ community. It is all about being true to who you are and whom you love. Throughout Destin Commons, several stores are showing their support for the LGBTQ community with limited edition campaigns. So, head to Destin Commons and shop the collections to show your support and love.
Express is known for their trendy and colorful clothing and their Love Unites campaign is no different. Not only is the bright rainbow of colors eye catching, but the story behind the organization they support is beautiful and inspiring. Express is donating 25% of the net income from this year’s collection to the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD); an organization committed to accelerating acceptance for the LGBTQ community. We invite you to come find your favorite combinations!
H&M has also joined the movement with a collection named PrideX. Through this campaign, H&M will donate 10% of their global sales to the United Nations Free & Equal campaign, whose mission is to stand up for equal rights and fair treatment of lesbian, gay, bi, trans, and intersex people throughout the world. This new collection marks the first time that H&M has created a cohesive collection dedicated to showing support of the LGBTI community, and includes t-shirts, socks, tank tops, cutoff jeans, sweatshirts, sweatpants, fanny packs and much more. All of these styles are created with a nod to the 1970’s, so you just might want to include a pair of bell bottom jeans to complete your ensemble!
No trip to Destin Commons is complete without a stop by American Eagle Outfitters! Step out, be proud,and purchase a piece from their Pride collection. Not only will you be showing your support, but 100% of the sales from the Pride Collection will benefit the It Gets Better Project, which inspires people around the world to share their stories and give future generations hope that it will indeed get better. Messages of Love is Love and Acceptance are clearly emblazoned on the colorful collection of t-shirts. Sending out positive vibes has never been easier or brighter!
This year Lucky Brand held an open call contest starting on Valentine’s Day where the winning designs were made into a limited-edition collection of tees. Three designs were selected as the winners of the Lucky x Love T-Shirt Design Contest. The design winners were Michael, Karch, and Shannon, all with different life experiences but all spoke of loving and accepting each other more despite our differences. Ten dollars from every shirt sold from the capsule collection will be donated to the LGBTQ center in Los Angeles. You will get all the feels from these lucky t-shirts.
I have too much makeup… said no one EVER! And now while you are shopping for the latest finds, you can also check out Sephora’s Pride display. Sephora has launched their first ever “Sephora <3s Pride” collection to celebrate and support the LGBTQ community. For every product in the collection sold during the month of June, one dollar will be donated to nonprofit partners that provide services to LGBTQ communities across the United Sates. Some of the products include a limited edition Youth to the People Superfood Antioxidant Cleanser and Benefit Cosmetics Hoola Bronzer PRIDE edition. So, if you love makeup and skincare, this is a collection of products you do not want to miss!
The list of stores does not stop there that are showing support for the LGBTQ community. Be sure to check out the pride collections at Victoria’s Secret and Loft as well. Destin Commons is proud to have stores dedicated to supporting our LGBTQ community. Together we can make a difference- all we have to do is LOVE!
