It’s June and we’re in the full swing of LGBTQ+ pride celebrations and so are some of our favorite brands. Many brands are using the month to show their support of the LGBTQ+ community by offering pride-friendly products and apparel, and donating proceeds from their sales back to organizations that help displaced members of the community acquire shelter, education, healthcare, and much more.
If you’re interested in the kind of shopping that puts money and support back in the LGBTQ+ community, then keep scrolling. We’ve complied a list of 10 brands who will donate most, if not all, of their proceeds to organizations that support the LGBTQ+ community.
