Though Pride celebrations have gone virtual, the support of the LGBTIQ community against the backdrop of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Black Lives Matter (BLM) movement is proving stronger than ever before amongst its allies.
With Global Pride scheduled to take place on Saturday, June 27, there’s only a sliver of time left to scoop up the limited edition products made to reinforce the month-long mission towards equality and recognition of diversity.
And since this year’s parties are happening indoors, what better excuse is there to dress up in your coziest rainbow-wear and treat yourself to some extra self-care? Here’s 10 Pride-themed products from brands that are giving back to LGBTIQ organizations worldwide.
