Wear Your PrideJune 11, 2020
Over the past few years, many brands have started offering special, limited-edition collections in June to celebrate Pride Month. Due to COVID-19, many of the public celebrations have been canceled but there are still plenty of ways to show your PRIDE. Destin Commons is proud of our retailers’ initiatives and have rounded up some of the best Pride collections around to show you how to support the LGBTQ+ community.
Abercrombie & Fitch
Is there anyone who does not love flip sequins? Not only are the wonderfully colorful but also uniquely satisfying! Come take a look at the Pride offering from Abercrombie & Fitch where they are offering hoodies, t-shirts, socks, and more all to show your pride. In addition, Abercrombie & Fitch will be donating $200,000 to The Trevor Project.*
*The Trevor Project is the leading national organization in providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer & questioning (LGBTQ) young people under 25.
This year, the Hollister Confidence Project and GLSEN have teamed up to produce a collection that was co-created by GLSEN’s National Student Council. Hollister will donate $5 from the sale of the PROUD t-shirt to GLSEN*. You will also find a wide selection of other products to show your support.
*The mission of GLSEN since 1990 is to ensure that LGBTQ students are able to learn and grow in a school environment free from bullying and harassment.
Now you can wear your pride in stride when you step out in these vibrant shoes from K-Swiss, Vans, and Dr. Martens at Journeys. K-Swiss is donating a portion of the sales to NOH8, an organization dedicated to promoting marriage, gender, and human equality through advocacy, social media, and visual protest.
Lucky Brand Jeans
For 2020, Lucky Brand Jeans has started an initiative titled Lucky Together, a content destination where helpful ideas, encouragement, and conversations are celebrated and exchanged. They are also highlighting Be Free and will be co-hosting a Be Free virtual event at a later scheduled date.
We all love makeup and skincare so why not purchase products with a heart. Now when you purchase limited-edition Pride items from Milk Makeup and Youth to the People at Sephora, proceeds will go to New York City’s Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Community Center and GLSEN. Now, not only will you look good but you will feel good as well!
What the world needs now is a little (a lot) more love, so show your love with Torrid’s latest collection. Torrid has partnered with GLAAD and 20% of the proceeds from this exclusive collection will go the Torrid Foundation in support of GLAAD and their mission to further LGBTQ+ acceptance and equality.
