11 Brands to Shop to Help Support LGBTQIA+ Communities
Parades might be canceled this year, but you can still show your support with these products.
It's Pride month, and though parades have been canceled around the country, it doesn't mean that you can't still show up for the LGBTQIA+ community. Many brands launch Pride-focused campaigns to highlight queer creatives, models, and organizations, and some take their activism a step further by creating products that benefit various non-profits. To help inform your shopping this month, we're highlighting just a few brands and products that are donating proceeds to LGBTQIA+ causes.
From iconic Air Force 1s that have been infused with rainbows, to brightly-colored glitter eyeshadows, to a body lotion that makes charitable donations all year, these fashion and beauty products are all must-haves in your wardrobe and on your vanity. And while rainbow pieces and products are fashionable for Pride, all of the things listed here can be used in your outfits and beauty routines beyond this month.
Here are just a few of our favorite fashion and beauty products that are benefitting Pride organizations this month—so make sure you stock up ASAP!
Air Force 1s are a staple in any street style-lover's wardrobe, and the limited-edition version for the brand's BETRUE collection is an absolute must-have.

These shoes, along with the rest of the Nike BETRUE collection, helps fund the brand's donations to over 20 non-profit organizations that help advocate for the rights of the LGBTQIA+ community.
