As you continue to celebrate the LGBTQ+ community for Pride Month, it’s important to note that it takes more than flying rainbow flags or posting on Instagram to show support. In addition to watching LGBTQ+ movies and understanding the group’s history through books like The Stonewall Reader, you can shop from some fashion brands that are giving back this month. It’s important to recognize, too, that even though many companies are donating to charities and organizations, this is all just a start. Continue to check in with the brands you love, and hold them accountable, on how they’re supporting the LGBTQ+ community outside of June.
In addition to browsing the brands, below, also support small and local LGBTQ+-owned businesses like New York’s Bluestockings Cooperative or Black Boy Knits year round. It helps to research and think through where you’ll spend your money as you’ll want that brand’s values to reflect yours. Ahead, TZR rounded up a tightly edited list of brands to shop, which are donating 100% of its merch proceeds from their Pride-adjacent collections to foundations like The Marsha P. Johnson Institute, The Trevor Project, and It Gets Better Project.
These organizations are crucial to supporting and championing LGBTQ+ individuals. Should you not need another yoga mat or rainbow-colored jewelry piece, you can just make direct donations to the foundations of your choosing. Some more suggestions for where to donate directly include social rights groups like Trans Women of Color Collective or GLAAD (Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).
We only include products that have been independently selected by TZR’s editorial team. However, we may receive a portion of sales if you purchase a product through a link in this article.
