Unlike last year, many of this year’s Pride celebrations will be held outdoors, which means it’s time to go all out and grab a new outfit to celebrate. Whether you just want a cute rainbow tee for your Pride party or you’re looking to spice up your summer wardrobe with a few new buys, be sure to spend your coin fashion and beauty brands with Pride initiatives that actually give back.
Tons of brands drop special collections with a percentage of proceeds donated to L.G.B.T.Q.I.A+ communities and organizations, while others drop similar ranges and donate a lump sum in advance instead. Either way, you’re better off supporting a brand that actually donates to the cause than ordering the first rainbow-striped tee you see on Amazon, am I right?
Whether you’re in the market for a new outfit, some makeup or skincare goodies, or a random assortment of candles, sandals, and whatever else tickles your fancy, you can find a Pride-supporting brand to shop below. Beauty brands like Ouai and Bath and Body Works have stepped up to the plate when it comes to rainbow packaging and major donations. Meanwhile, fashion and footwear brands from Vans to Banana Republic have dropped seriously cute collections too.
Below, shop 15 brands with incredible Pride initiatives you’d actually want to buy anyway, so you can stock up on some great stuff and feel good about your purchase in the process. Happy pride, y’all!
